Reached Our Northern Destination

Our goal was to go up the coast until we crossed Oregon and Washington state lines and spent at least one night in both. It has been accomplished.

We reached the border of Washington on Highway 101 by crossing a fabulous bridge in Astoria, Oregon. Then drove as far as Long Beach, Washington.

Our intention was to stay at another RV park but once arriving we located Oceanic RV Park, located right in the middle of town. They do not have a website and during season we are not sure if we would want to stay in this very small park, but for what we needed at this time, it was perfect. For the entire review, check out our separate blog and our entry at RV Parking.

The weather was holding out, even though it was cloudy and wet, we had a plan to check out the town, which we did. It is a quant little town with a lot of character, even during the non-seasonal time as it was on our visit. We had a great meal at Castaway's Seafood Grille, check out our entire review on the separate entry on our blog. We went to all the shops in search of our pins and magnets, Jerry was in rare form and we had a few laughs.

We went down to the World’s Longest Beach and checked out the boardwalk and the possibility of driving along the beach since it was allowed, but it was way too mushy so we chose not to put Maggie in the sand this time.

We stopped for ice cream and then found Funland, an arcade fun house where we bought tokens and had so much fun playing games, collecting tickets for goodies. We were able to purchase a pair of diamond earrings and a Kit Kat candy bar, all for $20 worth of game tokens…what a deal!

We like Long Beach and visit that area as often as we can. Isn't that bridge to Astoria something? I'm sorry to hear that your weather wasn't the greatest. When we get a good day this time of the year we really enjoy it. Today we had snow and more snow is predicted for tomorrow. Oceanic is a park we've never stayed at, but you can't be more in the center of town than at that park!
