    101 Oregon Coast part 1

    June 29, 2017 in the United States

    Wir queren am nächsten Morgen über das gewaltige Flussdelta des Columbia River Gorge bei Astoria und sind in Oregon. Und mit der Fahrt über die imposante gleichnamige Brücke beginnt der zweite Abschnitt unserer Reise. Es wird der Teil sein, den wir ausschließlich entlang der spektakulären Küste verbringen werden, immer konsequent auf der 101. Mittlerweile malen wir mit den Mädels unseren Routenverlauf auch schon auf einer klassischen old school Faltkarte mit roten Stift Tag für Tag nach. So ist den beiden schnell klar, dass es jetzt ganz viel Strand und Pazifikküste zu entdecken gibt. Adele findet das super, während Selma viel lieber noch ein bisschen in den Bergen gewandert wäre. Bei Wetter, was uns eher an den typischen Nordsee-Urlaub erinnert, kann ehrlicherweise von scenic drive erstmal keine Rede sein. Aber wir machen das Beste draus und wandern bei Ebbe vom Ecola State Park zum Haystack Rock. Uns wird auf den 3km auch langsam warm und der Felsen ist beeindruckend, zumal uns rundherum viele sog. tidepools das bunte Meeresleben zeigen. Wir staunen über grüne und pinke Seeanemonen, blauschwarze Miesmuschelbänke, orangefarbene Seesterne und weiße Seepocken. Auf dem Felsen brühten Seevögel. Selma und ich gucken so gebannt, dass ich die Welle nicht ankommen sehe und erst das Wasser um meine Schuhe bemerke, als es schon zu spät ist. Muddi hat so richtig nasse Füße und trägt damit maßgeblich zur familieninternen Erheiterung bei. Zurück in Cannon Beach gibts für jeden eine extra leckere Portion Fish&Chips.Read more

    Cannon Beach

    June 29, 2017 in the United States

    Südlich von Seaside ist der noch viel schönere Strand, an dem wir aber nicht lange verweilten, weil es noch nicht aufklaren wollte. Hier sind auch viele Felsformationen im Wasser, sogar näher zum Strand als bei den Peninsula Stränden. Super schöner Sandstrand mit nur sehr wenig Treibholz, zur Enttäuschung von Elliott. Der meinte, hier ist ja nichts!

    Er hat aber dann doch einen Stock gefunden, den er zu einem Pfeil schnitzen konnte. Mittlerweile türmen sich auch die geschnitzten Stöcker bei uns im Kofferraum.

    Wir entscheiden, uns nach Portland aufzumachen.

    Cannon Beach, Oregon State

    November 5, 2017 in the United States

    Today we crossed into Oregon from Washington state. We had planned to spend a few days along the Columbia River checking out all the waterfalls and trekking at the foot of Mt Hood. Unfortunately after driving over the bridge of the gods and not liking the campsite we headed further up the river and then headed down the east side of Mt Hood. Yet another campsite closed. After the weather hitting 0-C We decided to head west to towards Portland and Cannon Beach for warmer weather. Cannon Beach is a beautiful beach on the north west coast of Oregon and the town itself is quaint, rustic but quite rich. We had no idea where we would be staying and after driving around for long periods of time, we decided to spend the $31 to park at a campsite and crash in the car for the night. The place was completely in the dark and after getting out of the car and having coyotes coming within a few feet we jumped back in the car and slept. When the morning came we found that a ranger had put our $28 payment back on our windscreen and a warning about a citation. We both got mad, it wasn't our fault we didn't have the correct change that late at night. I might add that most state parks in the U.S charge the extra dollar and if you overpay then it's seen as a donation! Cheeky gits! Anyway, we drove off and got their 3 bucks. Headed back to the beautiful Cannon Beach and cooked our breakfast in the beautiful sunshine.Read more

    Thump, thump, thump. Creak, creak, thump. Bang, bang, bang, 5:30 AM? WTF? What's the Flipside? Us on the other side of the noise. This went on all morning. I would have sworn they were doing construction above our heads. I was so mad. I got up and hammered on the wall. We all tried to sleep longer. Finally, I just got up to take a shower. Grrr. Once everyone was up, we headed out for breakfast to a place called Slappy Jacks as recommended by our friends Wendy and Kevin. What a cute place where you choose your pancake batter ( I chose gluten free), then choose your ingredients (like chocolate chips, bananas, bacon) and then choose final toppings like whip cream. Then you cook it up at your table on a griddle. So cool. The pancakes were good too.

    After breakfast we took the kids to Powell's books, a six story book store. Pretty soon it will be like a museum since there aren't many books store anymore. The kids all chose books. Matthew who loves to read had to travel to all floors. Neat place. We walked around downtown Portland a bit and took the boys to the Nike store. Oh, they also have bike rentals here like Seattle (more expensive) but they are called Biketown (place nike swoosh here). Clever. Say it like Nike. See pics.

    Yes it was 107 in Portland today but we didn't really think it felt that hot. Maybe its a dryer heat. Regardless we had already decided to beat the heat by driving to the coast to a beach called Cannon Beach where it was in the 80s. Before we left, we grabbed our suits and such. Paul went upstairs to talk to the people banging around. Strangely, he found a little old man reading a book. He said something about the noise and the man said, "Its just me reading my book." He's lying or something. On our way down, a gaggle of young children came bounding up the stairs bouncing a basketball. Ah-HA!! He was lying. They went right up to that room. Grrrr. We went to the car but forgot something so Paul went back to get it. Along came grandma noisy. He stopped her and told her our dilemma. She was very nice but astonished that the kids were making such noise up in the loft. Seriously. I am not kidding how loud they were. We will see at 5:30 tomorrow.

    Off to the beach. We are so glad we did. It was gorgeous on the coast. What a nice little town with restaurants, shops and awesome looking houses and hotels on the beach. We really liked it there. We spent the afternoon on the beach. We headed back to Portland for dinner. We agreed on sushi so we hit a spot by our hotel. Not-so-much. When you walk into a warm restaurant with a sushi bar in the middle and a conveyer belt of sushi traveling around it past all the people sitting around it (lets say 30 or more people and 75 different sushis), turn around quickly and get the heck out of there. Eww, yuck, unsanitary, disgusting. We called our friend Mike Erb who lives here and he recommended a place to us near where he lives. It was much better. No Dave's sushi. After we ate we went to the park with a fountain and kids got their feet wet. Mike and Jen met us for ice cream in the park. It was a nice visit. Now we are home and exhausted. Remember, home is where the van is....I mean, clan is.

    Tomorrow we are off to Boise, ID.
