So far, our epic road trip has been a blast. Apart from the fact that I have a terrible sore throat, cough, and ear ache, I have been enjoying my exuberant family and our adventure.
We left Marblemount, WA, three days ago, on January 1. Doesn't it look like Eva is fighting me, screaming, "Don't get me into the RV with these people! What are they thinking? Six weeks traveling in this box together???"
On to Oregon, where we spent our first night at the beautiful Champoeg State Park with its enchanted oak trees. You don't see these kinds of trees where we are from!
And on to the Oregon coast, where much wave chasing and wet-getting was to be had.
We found Humbug State Park, which felt very isolated and magical, tucked away between a mountain and a rugged beach. We had a lovely sunset walk, and in Steve's case, a sunset head stand.
The next day, which is today, found us exploring the coast, sneaking up on seals, chasing sea gulls, eating lunch in the RV with the most scenic view ever, and embracing redwood trees.
|That's a root wad. |
And tonight? We found an RV camp ground with hook ups, which we need because I'm kinda sick, and I want to be warm. We thought about camping in Jedediah Smith State Park, but there is no electricity there. I guess the redwood tree roots are too tough, the park people can't put electricity in, which is fine with me, but really? I want to be nice and cozy tonight, so there. Plus this place has Wifi, so I can catch up on e-mail and this blog, recharge our cameras, and have this view from our window:
I'm signing off for today, cause I have to make tuna and egg casserole in our little oven. All is well!
