10/3/12–Lincoln City to Winchester Bay

We left the Lincoln City Elks Wapiti campground late in the morning of 10/3/12 and continued our journey south along the Oregon coast.

Along the way there are several scenic turnouts, and this was one of our favorites.  The waves came crashing into the shoreline and there was a blow hole that would spout off if the waves were strong enough.  It was really interesting to watch.


This bridge went across that same area to another viewpoint, but we weren’t able to look back and see the spout from there.


The glare from the RV windows doesn’t add to this photo, but here we’re getting into the Oregon sand dunes area.  It’s a very popular area for ATV’s, dune buggies, and sand rails.


We arrived at our campsite for the next two nights in Winchester Bay.  We had a couple of colder overnight temperatures while here, but the daytime was beautiful and we boondocked in the Salmon Harbor Marina.


Later in the afternoon, we drove around the area to see the Umpqua River Lighthouse.



And here’s a view of the jetty at the Pacific Ocean and Winchester Bay.


It was another beautiful day in our travels!
