Our morning started off we me sleeping in and Doug taking a lonely stroll on the beach..he had the camera for company…
As you can tell we both miss ‘tucker’..this ‘golden girl’..her name is Masie..she is 7 years old and a cancer survivor..one very large tumor removed..lucky golden!!
After Doug returned from his walk we decided to for go the continental breakfast offered at the hotel and we headed to the ‘pig n pancake’ for some real eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and pancakes.
We were at a loss of what to do today and where to go ..so with the help of ‘lola’..our Nav system..we went to the Drift Creek Bridge, just off of highway 18.
next stop is one that Doug has wanted to do since we got here??..drive the Jeep on the beach and take some pictures….mission accomplished.
our next adventure??..heading to the town of Kernville and Siletz River..we headed south again along highway 101 and took the highway 229 turnoff…we drove and drove and drove some more..no pictures were taken..I kept thinking there would be another photo op around the next corner…the town of Siletz River is so small..don’t blink you might miss it..we continued heading east along highway 229 and we wound up just south of Newport..a repeat of yesterday??..
We stopped at Devil’s Punchbowl …well worth the drive in a round about way…
we spent the afternoon on the beach..watching the waves and the kids playing..a nice way to end our last full day on the Oregon coast.
our last dinner tonight was at the Roadhouse 101..
we both had salad and a pulled pork sandwich…this restaurant is one of those kinds where you throw your peanut shells on the floor??..money tacked to the ceiling..worth a stop if you are ever in LIncoln City.
We went for an evening stroll on the beach…into the wind…at least when we turned around we had the wind pushing us back..so as we just finished watching our last sun go down..we are heading home tomorrow…more on the journey home later….
so long Oregon coast..till next time….
