Our time at Harris Beach State Park ended and they were full, so we made a short move to the Elks Lodge in town. $25, W/E/Dump, #11. It's a very nice lodge. It's one of the few that has been totally updated in the last few years. The camping area behind has ample spacing, pavement, with a little grass and large trees behind.
They have a large bar area, tables, a wall of windows overlooking a bit of the ocean and a game section.
3 pool tables, slots and darts.
This shuffleboard game was so much fun!
We got back together with my sister-in-laws Mom & her husband at the Elks for a great dinner. Afterward we went back to the Fat Irish Pub for dessert.
Sherri's birthday is a couple of days after mine so we celebrated both!
To end my birthday celebration, the next night, Steve and I went back to The Black Trumpet for dinner. Steve had Cioppino and I had a delicious steak.
We split a Creme Brulee.
Our very last day was a busy one. We were up early to head back to the docks to grab some fresh crab.
Steve chose 2 and had them cleaned and packed up so we could have them later.
Down the road a bit was the "Largest Cypress Tree in Oregon".
It was on the same grounds as the Chetco Museum but it was closed.
We just walked around the grounds admiring all the blooming flowers.
Geez, I was only away from the truck for a few minutes. Listen to Hurley as I come back!!
He always misses me. Sometimes Steve does the same thing ;-)
Lunch was at the Port Hole Cafe. They are supposed to have the best Clam Chowder. Steve thought it was amazing. My Breaded Spicy Shrimp was yummy too.
This is Kissing Rock.
One final view of the Brookings coastline as we drove off the next day.
More Elk in the marshes after crossing back into California.
We sure got lucky enjoying 2 weeks of mostly good weather. Just after crossing the California border the rain started up. It did make for some pretty misty pictures.
