Travels: 45 miles driving around (1363 total miles)
Accommodations: Continued at the Wallace Family home

We woke up to rain pitter pattering on the roof of the trailer, a noise we have become accustomed to in Oregon. Dave woke up and in true Oregonian style went for a run where he saw another bald eagle – for those of you in California this will also seem unique. The rest of us rolled out of bed and headed in for a yummy family breakfast.

After breakfast, we piled into cars and spent the morning and afternoon exploring the area. We went into downtown Seaside and walked around. On the way out Camille’s car got a flat and we headed off to get it repaired. The kids got popcorn while we waited – a fun tire place. After getting the tire fixed we went to Cannon Beach and saw Haystack Rock and walked around their ritzy, touristy, and cute downtown. The rain ran us out of town and back to the Wallaces for lunch and rest time for the kids.

Camille and I went to an adorable gallery in Gearhardt to look at her paintings hanging there. Then went on a run/walk around the “neighborhood” which is very beautiful. We had another wonderful family dinner – we watched elk and deer frolic in the front yard. After dinner, Camille and Jeremy (her husband) and Dave and I went to McMinemans to hang out – it was nice to have some adult time :).
