Paradise Point State Park, Washington


The youngest "peeps' have left Port is travel day for the "Bigdawg and Freeway".


We left POV and our new friends, Gordon, Juanita and Bodie standing in our campsite taking pictures as we drove away.


We were sad to leave but WE WILL see these fine folks again. The "wiseman" will not be forgotten..his "peeps" may left him but he is forever in our RVing hearts.


We headed north on Highway 101, towards Reedsport and then headed east on OR-38, travelling along the Umpqua River. By 11:00 am we were at a rest stop just north of Eugene, Oregon...time for a lunch break!!!


After our little break, we joined the rest of the travellers on the I-5, heading north towards Portland. Once we reached the north end of Portland the traffic was very heavy all the way to the Washington border.

We were very happy to reach our exit #16. We were both tired and thirsty, but glad to be at Paradise Point State Park.
This state park is very close to the I-5..a nice family park with lots of kids and dogs running about.


It is "happy hour" time..paralyzers are on the menu..after our long travel day of 495 kilometers (310 miles for our American readers).

We will be falling asleep tonight listening to the vehicles travelling along the highway that never seems to sleep.
