Another update from our friends on the “A Coastal Caravan” Tour of the beautiful West Coast passage.
We woke at the crack of dawn near Cape Meares Oregon to a foggy beach and a sea foam bath. Headed south en route to our favorite moccasin maker but not before we tried to find the Octopus Tree at end of the Crab Harbor Peninsula. Driving down the desolate dirt road flanked by water on both sides Nate (Bressler) asked ²You guys sure about this?². Moments later we met face to face with an Army issue dump truck and no option but to back up our two-part 44 foot long rig the half mile to the gate that said “DO NOT ENTER.” We offered the MO a case of PBR to lighten the mood but he declined. ”You guys in a band?” Not quite We eventually backed up and found the Octopus Tree a few miles in the other direction.
Later down the drive we stopped at Dune City and took a minute to walk around and watch the dune buggies howling in the distance.
Finally in the late afternoon we reached our destination and picked up the 14 pairs moccasins our friend has been making for us. Got these here now next to me in the Airstream.
Not quite sure where we are right now, some where by Bullards Beach State Park I think, but we can hear the ocean, ready for sleep, and ready for a new day in California, in full of color.
