Continuing South

Brookings, Oregon: Beautiful sunshine greeted us again this morning, so DT and I headed down to China Creek Beach to run along the shore. The sand was soft, but the views were beautiful.

I took my iPhone and snapped a few photos on the beach just south of Table Rock:

I also used my phone to video chat with Leo in Los Angeles! He loved seeing the waves.... and me, but kept asking for Bubba.

Around noon, we all hitched-up our tow cars and caravanned south along Highway 101.

We stopped at a beautiful turn-out just below Humbug Mountain and enjoyed lunch with this view of rock formations just off-shore.

We made another stop to Fisherman's Direct Seafood in Gold Beach, Oregon. Dave and I really like their canned tuna. Expensive, but hook-and-line-caught locally and (unlike national brands, often not from the US) has super-low/no mercury because the tuna are so small/young when caught. If you use a lot of tinned tuna, I urge you to purchase from Fisherman's Direct. (Another great brand is Oregon's Choice Gourmet.)

The RV park is basically a parking lot...

but this is the view from our front window!

bourbon, lemon, maple & rosemary cocktails, which we enjoyed in warm sunshine sitting in our folding chairs facing the sea.

I kid you not, before sunset the fog rolled-in!

Tomorrow we have another tee-time. I don't hit the ball very far, but am wondering... will be able to see my ball on the fairway in all this fog?

Until my next update, I remain, your foggy correspondent.

RV PARK: Beachfront RV Park at the Port of Brookings - Just a parking lot with full hook-ups on sandy gravel. Beach-front sites are 30-amp; back row have 50-amp service. Laundry. Wifi. We paid $41 per night. Too expensive for the services, but a pretty good deal when you consider the view.
