Our time in Lincoln City was counted down over the past few days with rain, rain, and then just for good measure, a little more rain. In between the frequent showers, we did go out to lunch one day at Mo’s, a locally well-known seafood restaurant:
We also took a drive and found a covered bridge over Drift Creek:
We had another lunch out, this time to meet Mary and David. They are former fulltimers who needed to come off the road due to some personal circumstances. I “met” Mary on the Weight Watchers community online a few years ago, so it was just like saying hello to friends when we met for at Gracies Sea Hag in Depoe Bay:
We had a good time comparing stories and getting to know them better. They are doing a little camping on the coast before heading back to their home in Idaho.
But other than these highlights, we’ve spent a lot of time reading, playing on the computer and watching it rain for the past several days.
This morning, the weather forecast called for – what? – no rain! Good time to pull up stakes and head on out. Our destination was Winchester Bay RV Resort, just south of Reedsport, Oregon. We left Lincoln City just a little after 10 this morning for our 100 mile drive down the coast.
Even though it wasn’t raining, the clouds were low and it was definitely a gray ride:
That is, until we arrived in the Reedsport area and found blue sky and sunshine! We got checked in at the office and found our way to our site, which has this view out the front window:
We are just around the corner from the Umpqua Lighthouse:
There is a one-mile walking/bike path around the resort that will provide me with a great place to walk the dogs. We’re happy to be in such a beautiful location, and look forward to doing some exploring over the next few weeks!
