Day Drive South Of Newport, OR Part 1

Monday 7/30/2012

On this day we were starting our new adventure crossing the Newport Bridge and continuing south.
The jetties on the Yaquina River.

We stopped at the South Beach State Park first.

An RV site will cost you $27 a night.
The park does not have sewer hook ups, but there are these sink waste disposal throughout the park. When we get to parks with no sewer hook ups, and we are going to stay for more than a week, Joe ends up carrying dish water out in buckets to the restroom. These sink waste disposals would be very handy. They also had sites big enough for a forty footer like us.

Further down the road we came to Ona Beach State Park.

I told Joe we needed some exercise, so we headed down the path to the beach.

Another big cliff up from the beach.

The beach was empty so we let Mallery off her leash. She is a different dog when she is free to run. She really misses her big back yard. She took off like a rocket!

Wouldn't want to own that house up on the cliff.

This beach had a lot of strange boulders on the beach.

"Come on guys, what's taking you so long" said Mallery
Off she went again.

It was a beautiful day for a beach walk.

We couldn't figure out where Mallery was getting all of her energy.
We had not seen her get this frisky for a couple of years.
She does love the cooler weather that the Oregon coast has during the summers.

Mallery was only naughty once when she saw a bird and chased it. It was the only shore bird we saw on our whole walk. When we got back to the car, we found our car was dead! Darn! Luckily we had jumper cables in the trunk, and in minutes we tagged some one down to jump us.

At our next stop, we left our Honda running.

Looking south at Seal Rock.

That must be Seal Rock!

We crossed a bridge into Waldport, OR.

Waldport has a population of 2050 people.

Joe kept driving through the town, but I had him turn around so I could get some better pictures.

Waldport Bridge

Alsea Bay with homes on the peninsula.

The peninsula has one street on the bay and the other on the ocean.

Sand beach point at the end of the peninsula.

Small entrance into Alsea Bay.

The next stop was at the Tillicum Beach Campground in the Siuslaw National Forest. This campground had only 59 site. There are no sewer hook ups and no dump station in the campground.

There are several sites that have ocean views and the sites are paved.

There are 7 pull through sites.
