Neskowin, Oregon

We arrived here at the Neskowin Creek RV Resort on Monday and will be here for two weeks.  This another in the Resorts of Distinction parks.

This is the entrance to the park.  This bridge doesn't look strong enough to hold a 16 ton RV, but no problem making it across.

The RV park is located in sort of a basin.  We are surrounded by hills of trees, lots of greenery.

There is a large indoor swimming pool, an indoor jacuzzi, and a large recreation room.  This morning, we walked over to the pancake breakfast that they serve on Saturdays, but we were too late.  It ended at 9:30 and we got there at 10:30.  So, we went back and had our own waffles, fresh blueberries and whipped cream.

We are parked at the far end of the park.

The Neskowin Creek runs on one side of the park.

The first few days were sunny and about 71 degrees.  The last few days have been overcast, foggy and in the high 60s.  

Neskowin is a really small town about a mile from where we are staying.  It doesn't even have a gas station.  We took a day to walk around the town and to the nearby ocean.

Saw this sign made out of plastic cups lodged in a fence in Neskowin.

And saw this sign, too.  I don't think they need to worry about anyone parking between these two signs which were about three feet apart.

Lots and lots of flowers around many of the houses in Neskowin.

Not sure what this one is, but thought it was pretty.

On another day, we drove into Pacific City.  It has a large rock in the ocean like Morro Bay, CA.

Ocean and rock in Pacific City.

Love the scenery here in Oregon.

On Friday we drove 10 miles into Lincoln City.  We got out of the fog and into the sun. Lincoln City is a much larger place than Neskowin and Pacific City.  At one time in 1983, Jerry, Susan (who then was 14 years old and didn't want to accompany us -- but we made her do so) and I flew to Portland and drove to Lincoln City to check out a piece of property located right on the ocean.  The property needed so much work, it really should have been torn down.  We didn't purchase it back then, but tried to find it when we were in Lincoln City this week.  We think we located it.  There is now a large hotel complex adjacent to and on the property.  It's probably worth millions today.

Lots of kite flying on the beach in Lincoln City.

We liked this one.

Another picture of the beach in Lincoln City.  We decided that we love this place, but it is a bit too windy and more on the cool side.  We'll take Cambria any day.

One other thing -- there are LOTS of rabbits in this park.  Jerry said that they probably find it safer in the park than in those hills around us.

We will be here for another week.  Hope the fog lifts.  But, if it doesn't, we are still more comfortable than others in the USA.
