|ahhh, do you have to leave?|
We said good-bye to our sea-loving friends...the sea lions and got back on the road driving north.
Next stop - four hours later, only 100 miles north on a winding road and very bumpy, we finally made it to Nehalem Bay State Park. By the time we had the motorhome parked in its new site, the cats were practically climbing over each other trying to get out the door. They are usually good about staying near the motorhome when we let all four out on their leashes, but not this time. They scattered as if they had planned it so we could not get them all back inside so we could move again.
Dusty ran for the tall grass, Squirrel immediately took off to other sites, and Hitch went up a tree. Even our skittish Max was exploring outside his usual 20-foot radius from the safety of the motorhome's door. After herding them back into our site, we finally decided we could only handle two at a time.
Hwy 101 is just below the clouds on the side of the mountain. It is quite a scenic view when it is clear.
We walked from the state park into Manzanita's downtown area. We like the warm and friendly atmosphere of the town's locals. My kind of town with many restaurants offering interesting vegetarian meals and shops offering creative artistic items. We moved today to Seaside. It is only 22 miles away, so we might try to go back for a visit.
On The Cutting Board
I finished sewing together the All Creatures Great and Small quilt. It needs a good ironing.....and I can do that now. We have full-hookups, so I can iron and get some projects done.
Well, the cats are begging to go outside and explore their new home. I guess we better take them out and get in a walk as well.
