Airstream trailer road trip and glamping around the Olympic National Park

It was day three of our Olympic Peninsula Loop which meant, two more days before returning back to reality of corporate America (insert sad face).   We enjoyed a breakfast of chocolate croissants, coffee and hot cocoa. With maps spread out over our morning table we began analyzing how our day would be spent.

“Can we go to the beach mommy?” B asks me pointing to Rialto Beach on the map . . .

Hubby and I looked at each other — “Yes! Let’s do that.”

And off we went . . .

Airstream trailer road trip and glamping around the Olympic National Park

Day two takes us north from beautiful Pacific Beach State Park to a day full of beach explorations, rainforest discoveries and settling into our new campsite.

Olympic Peninsula Loop Day 2 with our Airstream

Have a look at our beautiful Washington Coast.  With miles upon miles of undeveloped land, it is easy to sink in the vast beauty that is found here.  For me, this rest stop was special as I was really able to feel like I was “away from it all.” Continue reading »

This was such an awesome city — Pacific City that is, located along the Oregon coastline.  Everyone here was so nice and went out of their way to educate us on their culture and way of life.  Easy going is the name of the game  here — no one is in a rush (which is so refreshing these days) and everyone you meet, will smile at you.  That alone, makes me happy.

On our way up along the coast towards Pacific City, we stopped and met Tim at Oregon Surf Shop located in Lincoln City.  What a great guy!  Friendly as can be and so very helpful.  His shop was totally amazing filled with everything you could possibly need for a day (or two, or three?) of surfing — even lessons too.  If you are ever in the area and want to give surfing a shot, I say call Tim!

We met some talented surfers who allowed us to take some pictures of them in action.  It’s no wonder this place attracts surfers from all over the Oregon coast.  It’s beauty and great waves are hard to pass up.

We stayed at one of the most beautiful, clean RV parks ever and it is literally, right across the street from the Ocean and awesome surfing!  Cape Kiwanda RV Resort.  They have an indoor pool, hot tub, work out facility — the bathrooms are clean and showers are coin-free.  I can not recommend this place enough!  Did I mention how friendly the staff was?  Unbelieveably so.  If you are ever in the area, this is the place to stay!

Located in Pacific City is Moment Surf Company.  Thank you to Jeff who was so very helpful with his local knowledge of the surfing scene at Pacific City.

If you have an itch for some mid winter surfing, this is the place to be.  Friendly people, beautiful scenery and amazing talent all rolled up in one amazing spot.  Pacific City, Oregon!
