Nehalem Bay State Park has been home this week. A gorgeous spot, with miles of beach, trails, and the adorable seaside town of Manzanita just a 10 minute bike ride away. We were only supposed to be here for 4 nights, but turns out it will be a week, as Scott needed to take a trip down to his mom’s for a few days. I’ve been happily holding down the Fox, getting a few projects done, and heading up to Portland to see an old friend. We will be heading south again on Friday, to Newport Beach. Oregon is already on the short list for places we want to come back to…preferably in warmer (and drier) weather.
Some photos from earlier in the week.
Nehalem Jetty. It is cover with driftwood.
It was about a 6 mile walk to get to the jetty, and we had gorgeous sunshine the whole time!
We were not the only ones leaving tracks in the sand. Elk and seagulls apparently cross paths here too.
Foxy has been seeing lots of his kind up here! The Northwood factory is in Oregon and suddenly after never seeing any Fox Mountains on the road, they are everywhere. There were 3 others in the campground the other night, including this 2018 that we pulled up alongside at the dump station.
