I am really far behind on posts…I’m throwing this Thankful Thursday back to Spring Break, the first week of April.
Over a year later and COVID was still messing with our plans. Originally we were going to fly to AZ and spend a week in Sedona, which we were all very excited for. Mark and I got married in Sedona and have not been back since then, so it has been a long time, and Sky was so looking forward to flying, and seeing wear Mommy and Daddy got married. However, the numbers in AZ were pretty bad back then, so we decided it was safer to cancel that plan and scramble to see if we could book a camp spot at our favorite Spring Break destination!
Lucky us, Sunset Bay campground in Coos Bay Or had an opening for us! https://stateparks.oregon.gov/index.cfm?do=park.profile&parkId=70 We love heading down there for Spring Break because we tend to get a few days of nice weather since it’s so far south, and we truly love the hiking, beaches, sand dunes, and seafood in the area. We had a few rainy days this time around and took advantage of that to take a drive south further down the OR coast. I had no idea we were so close to CA actually, and we almost made it to the state line, but decided to turn around so we’d have time to stop at a fish market and get dinner on the way back to camp.
This was probably one of the most relaxing camping trips I’ve ever had. Due to some health stuff I spent most of my time in camp resting and reading books, 3 in one week! Mark and Sky had a lot of adventure time together as I was just not able to spend time on the dunes or hiking. I’m not complaining though, it was a really lovely trip and we found some truly beautiful spots further down the coast that we had no idea existed. I can’t wait to get back down there and explore again!
I’m super thankful we were able to switch plans at the last minute and still have a wonderful time. It was so nice to get out of the house and out of town for a week! And, it was really nice to visit one of our favorite spots again! We missed visiting in 2020 since the parks were closed and it really is such a beautiful area, with really great adventures to be had!
What are you thankful for today?
