Hometown Fire, Siletz Bay, Lincoln City Oregon

While getting the mail service disaster taken care of we revisit previous parking spots. A night back at our Hwy 131 spot, back to Girabaldi and our spot at the wayside just north of town.  A night at a local big box store.

A horrendous fire breaks out in northern California in the area where I grew up and where I have lots of family and friends.  Between this and the mail service fiasco, I am stressed, stressed, stressed, but it finally looks like I’ve got everything done that needed taken care of and we once again head south following Hwy 101 down the coast.

Lincoln City is our home for the next couple of days. The Chiweenie Brothers get in some beach time at the “D” River Wayside. The “D” River is billed as the shortest river in the world, and indeed it isn’t but maybe a half block long.

While staying in Lincoln City we take a few sightseeing/camp search wanderings around the area.

Along Siletz Road  following the river DSC_0034A Home on the Siletz River Love this house.  There are some RV parks along this road right on the river, too.

As I am enjoying the view of the bay a gal pulls up in what looks like a brand new Ford cargo van (turns out it is a Mercedes.  Oops! Sorry Sandy)  She spots the boys and I in the green machine and asks if we are full-timing. When I say yes she shares that she has just started.  We hit it off right and end up planning to meet at Boiler Bay, our next stop.

Thanks for stopping by 2DogsTravel. Hugs, Shawna

  1. Joe and I spent our honeymoon in Lincoln City. Brings back wonderful memories! You can’t miss the beauty on the Oregon Coast…unless it is raining and the wind is howling! 💦💨

    Thankful things are less stressful for you and the “boys”. Yes, we have had several big fires nearby. A small one on Four Corners was a little too close for comfort! So thankful for quick action by responders.

    Suspect you know that both Ben Winkelman and Lydia Winkelman got married recently. Quite a summer for Henry and Penny! Ben and wife living near Sacramento and Lydia and husband living in Bloomington, IL. Also two new grandchildren will be joining the Winkelman family this fall/spring.

    Keep on keeping on…enjoying your adventure!

    💕😘💕, Bettelu
