We went camping on the coast a few weeks ago at Cape Disappointment SP. We used our new big tent. Magnus liked being in the tent. It was a great time to go camping, because there was no one else there, so we basically had the place to ourselves.
Behind our camp site were these cool big rocks. Dana climbed to the top of them.
We had sloppy Joes for dinner and peach cobbler for dessert. There was much more cobbler than we could eat ourselves, but the raccoons were sure to help finish things up.
Then we went for a walk on the beach.
There was a lot of cool driftwood littering the beach.
A Coast Guard helicopter was on the beach doing some training maneuvers. It was exciting to watch.
Some pretty things:
We stopped at Fort Canby to explore the ruins and the view of Cape Disappointment.
We also sat on Waikiki Beach to see all the drift wood and the view of Cape Disappointment Lighthouse. Magnus liked climbing among the logs
Then we walked to North Head lighthouse where Magnus collected some rocks.
We thought the door looked like a certain time machine:
Then we drove the van out on the sand at Long Beach (the longest beach in the world). Magnus and Ruth took naps.
We made sure to drive into town to see Jake the Alligator Man and The World’s Biggest Frying Pan. Dana had to convince Magnus that the frying pan was not scary so he would stand next to it.
We also stopped at Fort Columbia SP to look at the cannons and to explore.
It was a fun, quick trip.
