Seaside Architecture

While motoring around on a electric trike ( check out Cozytrikes.com).  More on that in the next post as it is a story in itself. I was able to cover a lot of ground quickly, such as the side streets of Seaside which were virtually absent of noise from all of the tourists ( such as me). The house and cottage above caught my eye. I think the cottage is a rental or B&B. The other house is kind of a typical ocean shore house you might see along the beach, although much less pretentious and costly.The house faces West, the direction the wind and weather blown in from the Pacific Ocean, so it makes sense to have a covered porch and the second story protected by the roofline, rather than windows.

Seaside Pond

This pond was adjacent to the camping area where we stayed.

The cloud formation came through one morning. It looked menacing, but was harmless. Being close to the Pacific Ocean the weather can change rapidly. Fortunately, this year, we had a rainless week with mostly scattered clouds and sun. In years past the weather did not cooperate.

The Day Before

24-DSC_4898Getting ready to venture to Seaside Monday. The day before usually entails packing and loading and the inevitable forgetting of some important item. The weather in Seaside looks promising, a little cooler than Seattle at the moment.

I’ll try to post as much as possible. May have to utilize public spaces for wifi. Fingers crossed.

More from Central Oregon

Reading on the Mothership, our granddaughter misses some of the sights as we travel across Central Oregon. Needless to say, she is an avid reader ( voracious, maybe). I think that is her brother’s foot sticking up on the left. I guess I kind of got him in the shot.
