Newport Oregon

The bride and I are down on the central Oregon coast this weekend....fabulous sunny weather..... We caught a bunch of crabs off the pier....cooked em up and had them for dinner....After we purchased out current DP a few months ago we decided to take weekend trips more often...the coast is just a short hop from home....so far a fabulous weekend!

Where are you at? Used to go to Sawyers Landing for our crabbing jaunts. Get one of the view sites and enjoy the crabbing.

I am jealous, especially about the fresh crab. We love the Oregon coast.

We went there after the M&G at Silver Cove, WA. It's a very attractive part of the country.

We were in Astoria last Monday. We did a little bit of pedestrian sightseeing with our Lab in the lead, then camped at Fort Stevens. We went on down 101 to Tillamook om Tuesday, staying at a commercail campground near the Air Museum.

The Air Museum at Tillamook is a must for both aviation nuts and civil engineers with an interest in antique buildings. It was built as a US Navy Airship base in early WW2 and was big enough to house six blimps, fully inflated, lined up two by two.

It's the most amazing wooden buiding ever. Nearly 200' high and 300' across at its base, it has no internal columns and is a geodesic all-wood structure.

The airplane collection is interesting, too. Most are flyable including a P-38, a P-51, a C-47 and a Douglas SBD. Definitely worth a visit if you're anywhere close.

We headed back north towards home on Wednesday and stayed at the Columbia Riverfront RV Park in Woodland that night. It's a beautiful facility, with view sites along the east bank of the Columbia River as it flows north from Portland to Longview and the Pacific. We saw four big ships passing by, three headed towards the ocean and one, after dark, headed toward Portland.

A tad expensive, at $41 including tax and the Good Sam discount, but definitely worth a stop-over. The main north-south BNSF/SP railway line is about 2 miles east and the train horns woke me up several times. There are several grade crossings that require "2 longs, one short, one long" on the whistle. Some of the "longs" were 15 seconds or more. DW didn't notice them!

Overall a good 6-day trip

We are staying at the Port of Newport on the south side of town.
