Road Trip > Oregon Coast > Part One

by Rainbow Bobbins

Quick get away this weekend to the Oregon Coast. Cruised the forested highway 26 over to Tillamook – skipping the cheese factory in favor of a beach picnic in the sun in Manzanita. We headed south making stops at several random beach town shops selling everything from myrtlewood cutting boards to light bulbs filled with Oregon rain. I want one of those light bulbs. We found a camp spot practically on the beach and had just settled in to a can of Hamms and a round of Gin Rummy when our camping neighbors came over with two freshly caught, cleaned and cooked crabs. Wow! Yum! Thanks! Fully smelling of the sea and done with cards we capped the night with a pitch black beach stroll.
