Saturday, June 9 – We drove through rain this morning.
We are sure glad we bought new wiper blades. Paul tried the new type that are made by Bosch – The Evolution. They don't really have the metal part that holds in the blade. They are just a ridged arched rubber. They work VERY nice. Really quiet too!
A much improved wiper system. Tiffin is putting these on the new model motor homes. We did not buy the 34” blades that are sold for RV's but instead purchased the cheaper 28” more common size for about a third of the price. There is no reason to sweep rain off the entire windshield! The shorter ones worked great.
We are at Nehalem Bay State Park in Nehalem Bay. We had a little trouble upon arriving. Our original reserved site was F-01. It was impossible for Paul to get into site F-01, or for that matter get down the road to the site. He scraped the roof on almost every tree in that part of the park.
Once we got safely around the very large loop, we returned to the front entrance. We told the Ranger our problem with the trees and the motor home. He was very sympathetic, and said that they were aware of the issue and needed to get those trees trimmed. He listed all the sites available for our four day stay that he felt we could get into without tree problems. We were successful in finding a pretty good site – B03. We even get satellite service on our automatic Direct TV dish. All the sites are paved, with paved streets, 30 amp electric service and water. There is a dump station near the front gate. We have a picnic table and fire ring.
There are tons of KIDS here with their families. Gotta love it!!! Quite a difference compared to yesterday. Last night, we were the ONLY RV in the Elks Campground....ha ha!!
Besides the paved sites, the Park has Yurts for rent. They are really nice with a porch, picnic table, and fire ring. When we arrived, most of them were occupied.
There is a beautiful beach here at the park. A nice path leads right to the long sandy beach.
There is lots of wildlife here in the park. Almost immediately after Marsha took Bella out, one of the camp hosts ran over and said, "Be very careful. Don't leave your cat out alone. We have coyotes in the park. Very aggressive coyotes." We haven't seen any coyotes yet, but we did have a visitor walk right through our site.
We also have a crow that just hates Bella. The minute we pulled in that crow has done nothing but squawk! We take Bella out, guess who is watching and squawking.
We took her for a walk down one of the many paths here in the park.
Guess who found us and followed us…squawking all the way.
This is a very nice, clean Park. Everyone is very friendly. And even with all the kids, it is extremely quiet.
Our sign pick for the day was found on a t-shirt.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
