Trip report #5 – Yachats, OR
Greetings, friends, from Yachats! As I write this, I am watching the Dbacks game via one of our new Airstream enhancements – our roof-mounted Direct TV HD satellite dish. LOVE IT! We’ve had cable TV capability for a while now, but I couldn’t stand leaving the Valley of the Sun not knowing how my baseball team was faring. Thanks to the dish and Fox Sports Arizona, I am all set. (Now those boys of summer better get their game on – still trailing by 4.5 games but looking up.)
We arrived in Yachats from Eugene on Thursday and are definitely enjoying our stay here in the Sea Perch RV Resort. Once again, we find ourselves dwarfed by motor coaches but everyone we meet is nice and shows great interest in the Airstream.
We drove into Newport yesterday for groceries. Found the marvelous South Beach Fish Market and bought Dungeness crab and yellowfin tuna. You can’t beat same-day-caught crab with mayo and melted butter, sourdough bread, coleslaw and Oregon wine. Add a bit of dark chocolate and I’m in paradise.
Lots of photos to share today. They tell our story better than I can write it:
