Pacific City and the Rain

Well I have been writing my post for several days and just now my little finger hit something and poof it was gone..

So this will be the short version.

We arrived at Thousand Trails Pacific City on Wednesday after travelling 42 miles. It has rained pretty much the whole time we have been here.

Yesterday between raindrops we headed up the road to this lookout..

Up at this elevation there were lots of clouds..

Then we headed in the other direction to see one of the coasts big Haystack Rocks. This one is known as Chief Kiawanda..If you look closely you can see the face of the chief to the left and his ponytail on the lower right…

It was starting to rain real hard so we headed back home..

Today was another rainy day when we got up. This weather is crazy. It pours one minute and then the sun is out the next but doesn’t last long.  We thought this was a good casino day..

Heading back toward Lincoln City we were surrounded by this lush greenery, lakes and ponds….. Very pretty.

  We arrived at the Chinook Winds Casino which is on the ocean..Pacific City 030

We both donated a few dollars each and then enjoyed the lunch buffet..

After picking up a few errands we headed back home in time to watch the Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins.  They both won and the Bruins are now on their way to the Stanley Cup Finals…Good job!

Tomorrow we head another 42 miles up the coast to Nahalem Bay State Park for five nights…Hoping this rain will subside.
