The Apple of Neptune's Eye

Nehalem Bay State Park is about a half of a mile south of the divine Manzanita, and shares the same charmed weather and absolutely perfect beach straight from the gods. I finally lived my dream of renting a "fun bike" and zoomed along the surf line. Faye the dog loved it too, galloping by my side for miles. You can really zip along on those bikes, and they're quiet and don't hurt the environment. And they are the best dog exercisers I've ever seen.

We loved the campground, although people are REALLY packed in, right up next to each other. Everyone was respectful and quiet however, and we got a good sleep. In the morning we spotted this deer feeding nearby.

We have pledged to do this more often, and we're going to splurge on a THIRD camp chair so we can all sit down at the same time.
