We went to Ocean Shores this past week for a 4 night stay, My wife found a deal at the Ocean Shores Inn and Suites. This was our second visit to Ocean Shores
We left on Weds mid-morn. As we got in car wife says why don't we go through Astoria. I don't do well with instant planning. So I said that is too far. I had planned to take US-12 to coast
As we drove up I-5 from Vancouver checked map, and looked like we could go leave I-5 at Longview and head along SR-4 to coast. So we tried that. Left I-5 at exit 36. which was not SR-4 and not well signed, but we had done that before and eventually found SR-4 somewhere west of Longview. I had forgotten it was a fairly scenic drive along river as far as Cathlamet. though it was raining hard.
Checked in about 3. It was raining. It rained the next three days. we are regulars to Oregon coast and can stand some rain, but this was well beyond some.
We took our pooch and wife did find a break to get down to beach with her, And we did drive down peninsula to check out the town when raining only lightly. But we spent most of time in room. we did two jigsaw puzzles. Wife read one book.
We left a day early.Edited: 6:16 pm, April 02, 2012
