The Beach and the Woods

August 26, 2016

I was going to write this post about how I liked the woods and Leslie likes the beach.  And of course the woods are better, blah, blah, blah.  Now we are not talking about just any woods here,  I’m talking about the beautiful, coastal Redwoods of Northern California.

We have come down the coast from central Oregon and are now in California.  If you look at the map tab on the blog, you will see about five stops along the “beach” in Oregon.  Leslie calls it the Sea.  I think most say the Ocean or “the Coast”.  The coast is good if you like cool, foggy weather, scenic views, walking with your dog in the sand, collecting rocks and other debris, sunsets and stuff like that.image

Now the Redwoods…nothing like them anywhere.  Walking through a redwood forest is a religious experience.  The calm, quiet, majesty of nature.

It’s a good thing we don’t have to compare which is best cause we have both.

 

Vacation from Vacation?

August 10, 2016

We just left Corvallis, OR.  We visited with my sister Lori and her spouse Shayla.  We got to be in a house (we still slept in the Airstream in the driveway).  Walk in a neighborhood not a campground.  The Airstream and Rex each got a long overdue bath.  Pretty normal stuff for a few days.

We are now back on the road and on the Oregon coast.  Shayla  and Lori followed us.  This is definitely Leslie’s favorite environment. She is walking around with a perpetual smile.
