My oldest daughter is graduating from college next month. She went to school in Oregon so we’ll be driving back there for graduation. After the graduation we’ll be taking a bit of a camping vacation. I’ve been sharing some of our plans especially as far as the menu planning aspect goes.
Our trip is divided up into 5 different segments. Segment 1 is the Car Trip part. We’ll be driving ‘straight through’ from Wyoming to Oregon. It will take 18+ hours for that little road trip. You can read about our menu plans for Segment 1 here. Segment 2 I call Visiting Family and the Graduation. That is exactly as it sounds 🙂 We are taking food along to prepare at our families homes. There are so many of us that I hate to overwhelm them. Read about Segment 2 here.
This post will be about Segment 3: Camping at the Beach. I am very much looking forward to this fun and relaxing part of the trip.
We’ll be staying at one of the Oregon State Parks. The campground is about a mile from the beach and on a lake. We’ll get there on Sunday and that day just happens to be part of the Oregon free fishing weekend. While I’m not planning for it, our menu that night or the next morning might include trout. If the fishing is good, one or both of the girls might go ahead and get a fishing license for the time we are in Oregon. The youth license is very reasonably priced and Kiki especially enjoys fishing. Lulu likes it okay.
We’ll be right down the road from this light house and plan to make a trip over to see it. Even though I lived in Oregon for 20 years, I have never actually been as far south on the coast as we’ll be for this trip. We’ll be in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Of course, with our campground a bit away from the beach we won’t actually be staying in one of the Dune areas. Pretty close though.
