First Walks in a LONG Time

Sunday, August 2:

Although we tried to get out from time to time at Jojoba, we really were bad about getting any exercise. So I am determined that we are going to walk every day if possible during our stay in Oregon. No "hot weather" excuses!

I had looked at a map given to us by the park and thought we could just walk to the next road north of us and get to the Beach Loop.

I had suggested we drive it first, but Craig said, no, lets just go.

My mistake, the road we took did not go through. It was a nice gravel road, with a street sign, but it dead ended.

We turned around and went back to the rig the way we had come.

But, one goal was accomplished, we walked two miles.

Tomorrow we will try again.

Monday August 3:

The park is 1/2 mile from the beach, if you are a crow. We are not crows and cannot fly, but we did get close to the beach by car. At about 3 miles, it is a bit far for us to walk. 

The small parking area was almost full, but the beach was so vast that it seemed there were very few people around.

The sun was bright, the sky was blue, but it seemed there was a fog bank out to sea. 

The tide was going out so there was good, firm wet sand to walk on.

We walked about a mile down the beach (south), rested and enjoyed the sunshine, then walked back. 

Tomorrow we will head north.  Two miles a day is far enough for the first week.

Life is good!


  1. Way to go. And a beautiful 0lace to do it.

  2. Always nice to get out to explore and get your exercise in. With Scenery like that it should not be hard to entice you.
    Be Safe and Enjoy getting limbered up.

    It's about time.
