Boy, was it C-C-C-COOOLD last night – a low of -8C (17F)! We certainly hadn’t bargained for weather this cold along the Oregon Coast, guess the only good thing is that it is dry, therefore, now snow! John was really glad that he had hooked up the trailer last night as it wasn’t quite as cold then as this morning.

It was about 11 a.m. when we got on the road this morning for our drive to Winchester Bay – a drive of 170km (106 miles). It was a good drive with stunning views, have I said how much we love the Oregon Coast and its scenic coast line!

We stopped at the viewpoint for the Hecta Head Lighthouse and could hear all the sea lions roaring and lo and behold there were hundreds of them on the beach below us. There are caves here where you can see them in their natural habitat so that is on our agenda for when we are in this area and visit the Hecta Head Lighthouse. We stopped at other viewpoints to enjoy the views and take pictures and arrived at Winchester Bay RV Resort shortly after 2 p.m.

Sea Lions on the Beach

This is a beautiful park with paved sites and it is situated between a marina and the ocean – wonderful views. Now that it is dark it is nice to look out at the marina with all the lights etc. The park isn’t really busy so we had our choice of sites so are on an end site with a view of the marina and as we have no near neighbours we could leave the blinds open and enjoy the view while eating dinner.

And so ends another great gift of a day here on the Oregon Coast and we look forward to another nice, but hopefully warmer, day tomorrow.
