Rain, Rain, Rain and a little Ice

North Oregon Coast and crossing into Washington State

Our trip continued up the Oregon Coast and our next port of call was Seaside Thousand Trails Resort. Just three days there and it rained for two days. Luckily our site had a gravel base but we still had to wade a bit from the trailer to the truck and back.

The resort was OK with a lovely indoor pool and hot tub, but no internet even though we had been told that there was. We did a couple of drives to local beaches to give Timmy his beach fix. Just a quiet stay for us.

Skunk Cabbage, I was told.

Beautiful indoor pool at the resort

Our next stop was Travell Inn Campground,  a Coast to Coast park in Elma, Washington State. The drive was still rainy and as we got to the resort the rain changed to ice. It was fine for an over night stop, but not somewhere I would like to stay for any length of time.

The sun came out for a short while and we had a lovely double rainbow.

Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
