Last week Steve, Izzi and I went camping at Fort Stevens on the North Oregon Coast (just southwest of Astoria). It is one of our favorite campgrounds because of all the activities and miles of bike paths throughout the campground and the historic areas of Fort Stevens. We biked several miles to the museum on the property and there are several batteries from World War II that are on the grounds that are open to the public also. There is a lake within the park that is great for canoeing, hiking and sunbathing. The remains of the Peter Iredale ship wreck is on the beach near the park also. It went ashore in a fierce storm in October, 1906 and it’s amazing it is still visible after all these years.
Izzi loved running on the beach and we just had the nicest, relaxing stay. Our cell service was lousy, but that just gave us more time for playing gin and sitting by the fire in the evenings.
One of the days we took a day trip up to see my sister Bonnie and her husband who live in Ocean Park on the Long Beach Peninsula. We had a wonderful lunch and a nice visit before heading back to our campground. We drove through the historic town of Oysterville and the photo below of the old fence was taken there.
I didn’t take too many photos this trip since I have so many of the area from previous trips, but here are some from our fun, relaxing vacation.
