We returned from our three day trip to Rockaway Beach Saturday evening. I have been trying to decide how to post my photos, and have decided to go day by day.
Day 1 starts with getting there. After my Orthopedic appointment, we finished packing and hit the road. We crossed the Columbia River into Oregon at Longview.
At Astoria the Columbia meets the Pacific. It was time for a stop and a stretch. We did a short walk along the river walk. I love the views here, and the blue sky and warm breeze were wonderful.
That's the bridge to Washington over the mouth of the river in the distance.
We headed south on Hwy 101, the Pacific Coast Hwy. At Neahkahnie Mountain overlook we made the required stop. From here we could see that the weather way down the coast was clear.
We have arrived: Rockaway Beach and Twin Rocks.

We went for an evening walk and caught the sunset.
Evening in the cabin involved reading and eating ice cream and brownies. Jill had stocked up on four favorite kinds of Tillamook ice cream. The brownies were warm, just baked before we went for our walk. Jill and Irene spoiled us. We loved it.
