Quick Stop

We spent one night at Trucke's RV Park in Seaside.  My Allstays  app said they had w/e sites and a dump, but when we checked in, we were told the bad news that the dump was closed.  The electric only site for $25 was a little high, but the location was good.  The worst part was that after six days dry camping in Tillamook, we really needed to dump.  TMI ?  BTW, I have been sending in corrections to Allstays, but have yet to see one be made.

Besides walking along the Seaside 'promenade' - their fancy name for a concrete boardwalk - we had to hit Cannon Beach for a look at Haystack Rock.  We got a bit of exercise since the parking was pretty far from the attraction.

Haystack Rock is a 235-foot monolith, known as the nesting site for many sea birds, including puffins!

Mostly we saw gulls.

We weren't willing to walk through the water to get closer, but we didn't see any puffins through our binoculars.

The rock formations are classic Oregon coast.

And the view looking inland is pretty too.

I'm the first to admit that Ron and I don't eat at 5-star restaurants, but I have to show you our dinners from a little place attached to a motel in Tillamook.

This is my salmon.  Classy, huh?

And here's Ron's crab ravioli.  Not as  pretty as mine, but he said it was very good.

All this from an unpretentious place called Pacific Restaurant.


  1. Beautiful scenery!
    Sometimes the not so fancy restaurants serve some tasty delights that are prepared by Short Order Cooks rather than a Chef. You spend less of your hard earned cash and have a meal that leaves you satisfied if not full rather than having you snacking before going to bed.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. That area really is beautiful. Sure hope you find a place to dump. Full tanks are not a good thing.

  3. Not fun when there is no dump handy. Hope your MH can hold it until you find one. I don't think they make diapers that large... :cD

  4. How crowded is it there? Along the Oregon coast I mean have you had any problems finding a campground? I wanna see haystack rock! When I eat out I normally end up going back to vegetarian or going salmon is my meal of choice that one looks pretty darn good!

  5. That's our kind of restaurant. Remember the Mexican place in Divide?
