May 30 - To Nehalem Bay, Oregon

View Larger Map

It is 12 C and it is bright for now; not really sunny outside.  Memorial Day is over and many campers are leaving this morning. 

We are also leaving today and moving down the coast. It is only a 1 hour drive to the next place so we waited at the KOA until checkout time at noon to give time for people to vacate our next campground.

We are now at Nehelam Bay State Park. It is on the long sand spit in the picture below. It has about 260 sites with electricity and water but I would guess only about 40 are occupied now.



After setting up we went out onto the 3 mile long beach immediately behind out site. I’m not sure if we will ever get bored by it but we can sit and stare at the wave crashing in for hours.



Wandering around the campground there is a section called the horse camp for people who bring their horses, complete with corrals on each site.  It was most unexpected, as I had never seen this at a campground before.  While strolling around a couple drove by and handed us a business card for their B&B; with accommodations for horses too.
