Sight Seeing

Lincoln City, Oregon               High 61 Low 56

Yesterday we left Sisters, Oregon and drove to the south end of Lincoln City. We are staying at Chinook Bend RV Resort on the Siletz River about 3 miles from the Ocean. We have stayed here twice in the past and while calling it a “Resort” is kind of stretching it, but with 30 amp full hook ups it is OK. The owner that checked us in remembered us and the staff are very accommodating. The other times we have been here must have been later in the year, because the Park is the fullest we have seen it. We were told it was because Portland is so hot that lots of people are coming to the coast to enjoy the cooler weather.

It is about 30 degrees cooler than in Sisters which made for good sleeping. We haven’t had to run the Air Conditioning or heater, so we are happy.

Today we drove south on Highway 101 to Depoe Bay and then to Newport. Another difference we noticed this trip is way more traffic through the three towns we drove through.

Cindy was able to get some pictures from one of the turnouts along the Highway. There was a seagull standing on a post that let us get quite close before Penny growled at it and it flew away.

There were sea lions swimming in the Ocean below us but I only got glimpses of their tails and we weren't able to get pictures.

While we were in Newport we tried to go to the fabric stores we remembered from last time except now only one is still in business. The sales person told us that they were the only fabric shop in Newport. Cindy got the row by row pattern from this store and found another pattern she like that was only $2.

This is the nicest Row-by-Row pattern we have found on this trip.
We tried to take Penny to the beach so she could play for a while, but we couldn’t find a parking space, so we might have to go earlier tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Sadly, several fabric stores have closed their doors since your last visit. My all time favorite in Tillamook is still open however. Newport is my Happy Place.

  2. Beautiful Scenery that gives us ideas for future travels.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
