A Beautiful Morning

Fresh salt air, cool breezes, sunny skies and a walk on the beach. Remember the band, The Rascals and their song, "A Beautiful Morning"?

It's a beautiful mornin' Ahhh
I think I'll just go outside a while
An jus' smile
Just take in some clean fresh air, boy!
Ain't no sense staying inside
If the weather is fine an' you got the time

Great song, great day.

When we drove to the Columbia River jetty a few days ago, we noticed a wildlife viewing sign along the way. Today was a perfect day for viewing, so we stopped at the sign and walked into the wetlands created by the Columbia River. Most of the wetlands I've visited have been hot, humid; and well, a little stinky. Surprisingly, this was a nice walkway into tall grasses, pine and out to a lake with a good-sized beach. We caught sight of a large bald eagle--too high to take a photo.

What is cool about staying near Astoria, Oregon is you are centrally located to a lot of interesting places. This past week, the farthest we've traveled is 19 miles to Seaside, Oregon. On June 19, we plan to visit Cannon Beach for the sand castle contest and it's only 26 miles away. For the three weeks we are here, we've got something to do or see every day. One day, we'll have to play the golf course at our RV location--Lewis and Clark RV Park.
