$78 ($26 x 3): Top Secret Central Oregon Coast National Forrest Service campground
An early start at Barview Jetty got me to my top secret campground by 9am. It says “full” at the entrance, but this is the magic hour of “churn”. And sure enough, someone pulls out of one of the many non-reservable sites, steps from the water. It’s a little short (it only fits the trailer), but the view is worth parking the car in the day-use area.
(yes, those are my footprints looking like a barefoot Charlie Chaplin walking towards the camera)
This is the one campground I always need to stop for on my trips. The view, the sound, the foggy walks on the beach.
Unfortunately, the Oregon coast pulled its usual bait ‘n switch, and was cloudy the next 3 days. So, not many photos.
I did stop in Newport to admire, and walk across, the Yaquina Bay Bridge.
It’s too near an airport for drone flying. Drat.
It cleared up the next day, so be prepared for a photo and video heady post ahead…
