Seaside, Oregon

Our week in Birch Bay flew by. Thursday we got up early & drove down to Seattle. We turned in the rental car & hopped the train to Portland, OR.  In Portland our friends Ilene & Stu picked us up, & we went to Seaside. The weather was pretty gray when we woke up on Friday morning,  but cleared as the day progressed.

We walked around town a bit, it’s a very quaint little place.

This carousel was inside a bunch of little shops.

This is our condo. Our room faces into the center pool area, but has a pretty good view of the ocean.

From our room, I noticed this strange pipe sticking up from the beach.

I had to hike out there, to see what it was.

I’m still unsure what it was!

There was even a dragon flying in the sky!

You're bringing back memories for me. We were in Seaside about two years ago and had much the same kind of weather. It's such a charming place, isn't it? Thanks so much for sharing your lovely trip.

Welcome to Oregon! Hope you are finding some of the wonderful shops full of fabric!

We visit Seaside every fall and it is my favorite place to sit and relax. If I remember right, it was for desalinization. Doogers has a wonderful scallop dinner and the diner out on 101 south of town has the best marionberry pie and chowder. Have fun!
