We left Washington State, traveled over this Bridge into Oregon at Astoria to have breakfast at Stephanie's Cabin, then south to Cannon Beach, famous for it's Haystack Rock, then on to Manzanita, where we had dinner and some pints at the San Dune Pub, known for not only their fine beer but also for the Blues musicians who come to play.  Cool Joint!!

Drove through our old neighborhood before meeting other friends at "The Depot" for dinner and found 3 deer enjoying the cool grass and some serenity. 
Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of our wonderful friends Glen and Marie who we met for dinner, nor pictures of our awesome meal.  Al ordered "FIG GLAZED QUAIL MARSALA"; PAN SEARED, BACON WRAPPED QUAIL OVERSTUFFED WITH HOUSE MADE WILD BOAR SAUSAGE FINISHED WITH MARSALA FIG GLAZE ON CRANBERRY HAZELNUT WILD RICE PILAF.....and I ordered an awesome "MOROCCAN OSSO BUCO"; BRAISED LAMB SHANK IN A CURRY SAFFRON BROTH WITH CURRIED ISRAELI COUSCOUS, PINENUTS AND GOLDEN RAISINS ~ and we all enjoyed some fine Italian Chianti.
Check out The Depot Restaurant housed in the old train depot building in Seaview, Washington. Be sure to look at their awesome menu...

We spent the night at the Seaview Motel and Cottages, a small, locally owned Motel right across the street from The Depot.

Top picture is a very weird house built behind other homes with no apparent driveway or access to any road.  We drove around the whole block and never found any way to get to it! We lived in this area for about 13 years and NEVER saw this before.  It had many antennas extruding from the roof.  ET where are you? The next building is the new Oysterville Sea Farms retail building.

Top picture is Al with Gladys our next door neighbor in Surfside, Ocean Park and the bottom picture is our sweet, dear friend Lone (pronounced "Low-Nah" or "'Lone-Ah", she and her husband Ron were some of our Moose and Eagles Lodge friends and also lover's of the ocean.

We stopped at River View Dining for a BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with Fries and Cole Slaw.  In seem to have a memory problem and forget to take a picture of my food before I 'dig in'. We have driven by many times before to see smoke streaming out of this Smoker and always wanted to stop and taste their food.  It was WONDERFUL.

We stopped in Ocean Park at the 'Lost Roo Restaurant and Bar' to have a beer and check this place out now that it has  new owners (from Australia) and has a new name!
