Seaside Oregon

While camping at Seaside Thousand Trails in Oregon


Seaside Thousand Trails is one of my favorite thousand trails in Oregon. Its has clear open areas so we have good satellite reception. Our Verizon wifi works good here. We found a campsite with full hook ups by the indoor pool & spa. We can walk to the beach & movie theater from the campground.


Local Restaurants: The local breakfast place we found is Pig’s n Pancakes. It serves a variety of breakfast meals. The coffee is hot and the waitresses are friendly. We have tried the Dooger’s Seafood & Grill for Clam Chowder. I was happy with the flavoring of the clam chowder here but it wasn’t the best clam chowder I’ve tasted.



Seaside on Saturday: Saturday was busy in Seaside. The beach was filled with excited kids & hopeful parents for the beach soccer series in Seaside. The muscle cars lined the streets in downtown Seaside during the muscle car & chrome show. The local Seaside elks had a fundraiser for a fallen police officer. Saturday in Seaside was filled with things to do.


Nature Identification: I’ve spotted several wildflowers to identify. Also, we found a new bird for our life list. While on our morning walk we spotted a Caspian Tern. His orange beak and black-capped head stood out among the seagulls on the beach.

Happy RVing!

Seaside Beach Volksmarch

The volksmarch starts at the Seaside Convention Center. During, the walk we passed by the Butterfield Cottage Historical Museum, water treatment plant, Necanicum river & beach front homes in Seaside, Oregon.

We walked along the beach. The Lewis & Clark’s trail ends at the Pacific Ocean. The Salt Works is located along the volksmarch too. I had a nice conversation with a local picking berries along the beach. He picks the berries to make homemade jelly.

Happy Trails!

Astoria Farmer Market in Oregon

Astoria Sunday Farmer Market
Cooking and shopping for food brings rhythm and meaning to life. Alice Waters

I was shy about buying food at the local farmer markets but once I overcame my shyness. I learn about different veggies & fruits by talking to the local vendors. It can be intimidating at a farmer market but remember … I know that the idea of going outside your comfort zone can be scary, but you won’t be able to grow as a person if you never take chances.  by Neal Donald Walsch

This market was filled with people. Music was playing in the food vendor area. It’s a good size farmers market. I get excited when I see a market this size. I saw fish, smoked salmon, local arts & crafts, local veggies & fruits, food, nuts, flowers, soap, handmade musical instruments, bread, desserts, humus & lots of food samples. This is an excellent farmers market. I like the local artist’s booths. I bought a new Puffin shopping bag. (its below)

These are the things I bought at the farmers market.
