The other day I left the RV to go for a walk. I was planning on going to one of the national parks around Bend that have trails through the mountain wilderness. As I was getting ready to go, the image of the coast came flashed through my mind. So instead of packing a backpack for a few hour hike, I packed an over night bag and headed to the coast. Its about a 3 1/2 hour drive from Bend to Newport. I left around 3p and got into town right around 7p. The sun was shining and the ocean was beautiful! I drove over Thursday afternoon and I’m headed back to Bend this morning. It was really a fantastic stay!
