Answer: As run down and weather worn as they look, the Mexican restaurant and the Motel are still operating. The coffee shop (?) is a thing of the past.

Floral from Seaside

Motoring about on Big Red gave me a chance to see things I might otherwise miss.

It’s kind of like walking and doing street photography, but at a faster pace.

Safe travels from the Mothership

docked in Seattle!

Note: One week away from our next adventure. This time we are going around the Olympic Peninsula, clockwise, if that makes sense?

Also, the screen door I ordered, from the Coachmen factory in Ohio, is on its way to Seattle. Should be here on the 24th. Once here, I will have to see what sort of hardware pieces I will need and maybe have time to install it before the next adventure.

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.
