As we headed northward again, we chose to take the Redwood/Coast Highway for three days.
Along the way, we drove through groves of Redwood:
Stopped a couple of times to enjoy the ocean again:
Even though the days were dull, it was still great to be at sea-side with the sounds and sights and smells.
It was really hard to get a good picture, first because they were so far out, and then because they just seemed to bob up and down.
We camped near the Redwood Parks, and took a drive around. Oh, those trees, they ARE magnificent:
As we came into Oregon, the sand dunes glistened in the sun (yes, the sun eventually came back – with a vengeance I might add. We went to sleep with an extra blanket one night, to wake up to 20 degrees C/50 degrees F, and the day just got hotter.)
From Florence, OR northward, we were in familiar territory, having visited here just three years ago, and our conversation went a lot like this:
‘Oh, we’ve been there’
‘That’s where we stopped for lunch’
‘I remember that’
‘Now that’s new’
It was almost like being ‘home’ again.
And today we will arrive home, to our DD and DSIL there for a short visit. They may even be there already, as they planned to drive through the night last night.
It’s been a great road trip, hope you’ve all enjoyed the scenery and tours along our way. Blessings, Peg
