Hello to everybody! After a year long sabbatical for lots of reasons, am back with the photo blogs.
Last weekend which is mid-june, made a trip through the Pacific Coast along US-101 and experienced Yurt camping for the first time. Our yurt was in Grayland Beach state park.
In the morning, we headed straight for Fort Stevens State park in Oregon . We stopped at Raymond in between for brunch.It is about 200 miles from Redmond. Following was our route to Fort Stevens.

Fort Stevens state park still maintains the ruins of a ship, Peter Iredalw, which unfortunately was pushed to the coast by strong gusts of wind. The whole place is beautiful. There are 4 or 5 lots which are sequenced as Lot A - E. Each lot offers a different view of the Columbia river and the Pacific. Viewpoints are strategically placed.
After soaking all the ocean beauty we headed for Grayland Beach State park to settle in our Yurt. It is a nice tarp tent with a nice bunk bed, futon, electric charging points, electric light, even a heater! That was something in a campground. It was a very luxurious camping experience when compared with tent camping.

Ummm......the taste of food mixed with charcoal flavor is something that is beyond description.

After spending an hour or so at the beach we prepared our lunch and packed our stuff to return home.
In just two and a half hours from Redmond, this is a very beautiful place for camping and even for day picnic.
I shall try and add more photo blogs of our visits to places with novel experiences. It feels great to be back with the vast world of the internet web!
