Journey Down the Oregon Coast

The Cardinal repair work was completed Thurs so we picked it up at Johnson RV Center in Sandy and headed to the Oregon coast. Judy and I were pleased with how well the new door looked. I should have taken a before and after pic. Maybe I will  later.

The 150 mile drive from Sandy to Newport went smooth and we arrived at the Whales Rest RV Park an hour before dark. I was not impressed with the park, but for an overnight stop it was ok. It is getting a little run down.

Friday we continued driving south down HWY 101 along the Oregon Coast.  It rained for the entire 175 mile drive to Gold Beach, Oregon. Even in the rain the coastal views were interesting. I had planned to stay at Port Orford but when I called the RV park I was informed they did not have a site that would work for the forty foot fiver. I quickly called a park listed on my ALLStays App and made a four days reservation taking advantage of my PassPort America membership.  The stay at the Turtle Rock RV Park will be our last four days in Oregon. Gold Beach is a small costal town that caters to tourist. Judy and I dined at Spinners Steak and Seafood Restaurant after getting settled in.

Today we have watched a lot of football after a couple of hours investigating the area.  The weather was very nice with clear skies and upper 60’s temps.  I will be planning the remainder of our travel plans during the next couple of days.
