I am back up in Oregon on business. Fortunately, I had a break in the "fun" today and was able to toss on my sneakers and go for a little cruise. Didn't have my trailer. It wouldn't fit in the overhead bin.

I decided to *finish* what I started out to do in December when I tugged my trailer up here. (Which was to do northern cal and Oregon via the coast into Portland) The rain was so bad, I cut over early and hobbled into Portland without finishing my northern Oregon part of the route.

Today I drove out hiway 30 to Astoria. Went to Fort Clatsop only to discover the fort burned down in October.. but I got to see the reconstruction going on and do a nice liesurely hike in the park.

Down the 101 to drive on the beach near Geahart (Warning.. nothing handles like a rental!) and see the surf sailing kite thingies. Never seen them before. Guys on surfboards hanging from parasail thingies. Whacky!

Down to just south of Seaside to a small Crab stand. Local culture at it's best! My Dad would take us here when we were kids. I got a Dungeness crab cocktail. Oregon Crab cocktails are not the fancy schmancy yuppie lettucy, frilly dainty things you see elsewhere. You get:

A paper cup of crab, about 1/2 pound or so, all meat, already shelled for you.. just a big bowl of lushious white and sweet Dungy! You also get a little cup of cocktail sauce.. use if you want.. or... Not. And a couple of saltines. Eat on the rickity old douglas fir plank on the little river the stand is on.. yum yum yum yum.

Just a few miles south, one of the most spectacular vistas one will ever see. Problem is, it's rare to see it without a 30mph wind, and even rarer when there isn't a cloud in the sky.

I was lucky today. Mike, can Cambria match this?

GINA, Gina, gina...

You sure know how to make an ocean view lover quiver in his boots, don't ya?

I can hardly wait to get back down to Astoria for the week of July 4th and then later on return further south to Coos Bay to attend the Sand Blast Rod Run!!
