Some water was falling out of the sky as we were leaving Vancouver. Oh yea, rain. We hadn't experienced rain in quite a while. The new motorhome didn't leak anywhere. That is a good thing! And on this trip, no bugs to clean off the front end!
On our way to our next stop, we curved back into Oregon and passed through Astoria. We stopped at the Colunbia River Maritime Museum. There was a big parking lot, and a geocache was here that we wanted to find. For some reason, we didn't get any geocaches in Oregon the last time through.
There was one here at the museum.
Our parking spot beside this old guide boat.
Hey, there is the Astoria Column. We were up there last year.
This is a neat museum.
The Lightship Columbia and a paddle wheeler.
Lots of cool stuff here
But we were here for this
This is a virtual geocache. We had to look at it close-up.
After this find (our 108th one), we got the Oregon State souvenir.
That makes 19 states we have found geocaches in. Cool!
After a 122 mile day, we arrived at the Long Beach Thousand Trails RV Park. One of our 'bucket list' items, is to stay in each of the Thousand Trail parks. This is our 22nd TT park we have stayed in.
This is our site we chose.
This is not much of an RV 'Resort', but it is in a great location.
Good space between sites, and they have a pool area, but not open yet.
There is a trail to the beach that is pretty close to our site.
After just 300 yards or so, I came upon a paved walking/biking trail.
It is called the Discovery Trial.
I checked out the ocean here.
And had to do a selfie for Facebook too!
I had to get my bike out!
The next day, the sky was blue, sun was out, gorgeous, and definitely a biking day!
The Discovery Trail is 8.5 miles in length. I headed out on the trail from Seaview where our RV park is,
and rode down to a Gray Whale skeleton site beside Long Beach.
Gray Whale sculptures, bones, and a selfie.
Then I cruised around the town of Long Beach.
Typical tourist town. Cool wood sculptures.
Even a giant Gooey Duck and frying pan.
And a cool museum too!
I did 6.5 miles of the 8.5 miles of the trail.
This Thousand Trail parks is good because of this location. Some we have been to, we wouldn't go back. This one...we just might.
Next up is Oceana TT near Ocean City, WA.
