Enjoying the Pacific City area

This area is very pretty with wonderful views of the ocean.

At the Thousand Trails RV Park, there are domestic bunnies just everywhere. Marquis is very interested, so we keep her on a short leash!

Our friends, Larry & Carolyn are here also and we are enjoying spending time with them.

I picked huckleberries one day and Gerald fixed huckleberry pancakes one morning.

OK, I have photos now!

On Tuesday, we drove to the beach and then up to Astoria and across the Columbia River to Washington up to Long Beach, WA.

This crane was at our campground.

Next, we stopped at the beach in Gearhart where we could drive the Jeep out onto the sand. We walked on the beach and Marquis got a little exercise in the sand.

This is North Head lighthouse in Washington, near Ilwaco. Gerald is standing in the lower left of the photo.

The view of the Pacific was just beautiful!

The water was swirling all around the rocks.

The ferns were growing everywhere, like a rainforest!

Yesterday, in our campsite, we saw the biggest slug we have ever seen! It's a banana slug and was 7" long.

On the Beach at Seaside, OR

When FMCA was over, we drove to Bend to get new tires put on our motorhome and then headed to the coast. This is Marquis lounging next to my seat while traveling.

This is Mt Hood. We took Hwy 26 and it was a beautiful drive.

We are at Thousand Trails Seaside campground. It has been raining the last couple of days. We have been cleaning up from the dusty conditions at Redmond and doing some shopping. There is an outlet mall there and also a great yarn shop.

We took Marquis to the beach and she loves it.

Back to Redmond for the FMCA Convention

After the Beaver rally, we went back to Thousand Trails Bend/Sunriver for 4 days and are now at Redmond at the FMCA Convention. They are expecting 2500 motorhomes to attend.

We are volunteering security with the Beaver Ambassador Club. Mostly we check to make sure everyone has on their badges and things like that. The weather is great, high 70's to low 80's in the daytime with a nice breeze and 40's at night.

We will be here till Friday.

Beaver Rally in Prineville

Here we are at the Beaver Ambassador Club (BAC) Rally in Prineville, OR. There are 200 Beaver coaches here, what a beautiful sight!!

I took a few photos of the coaches parked near the tent; others are in the adjacent campground and some are under the barn covers (one photo). We are parked near the arena. So, we are scattered all over, but the tent is close to all.

It's been great to see our friends and catch up on where everyone has been. We will be here till Monday.
