Hello, Oregon- Good-Bye, California, Sunday, April 28, 2013

A 137 mile move up the coast from Eureka, Ca. to Gold Beach, Oregon.  Yes, we are in now in Oregon after more than a month of moving about California seeing interesting places and some friends that we had not seen for sometime.  We are still along the Pacific coast on Highway 101, Redwood Highway.  We did stop at the Welcome Center for Oregon which only had an outside kiosk with just a few pamphlets.  Making the most of the stop, we ate lunch while parked there and decided where we would find a campsite.  Turtle Rock Resort in Gold Beach was a Passport America park so we proceeded to that destination.  The campground is nice but not what we would call a resort but the price was great at $56.69 for 3 nights with full 50 amp hook-ups- we have paid more than that for 1 night several times on this trip.  We drove around the town after settling into our site and stopped at the Visitor's Center which was staffed and had good information and brochures.  The remainder of the day we chilled out and took a walk to the beach.  It is windy and chilly today (50's).
