Fort Clatsop and Seaside, Oregon

Ever since we visited the arch in St. Louis and watched the film on Lewis and Clark, we have been enthralled with their journey.  This connection only deepened when we delved into our history book and a guide our neighbor Marilyn had given us. We loved reading about them and their faithful journey.  Well this is where that journey came to its climax after a 4,000 mile treck.  They spent the winter of 1805-1806  here at Fort Clatsop.  They had found what they had been striving for, a passage to the Pacific Ocean. There were 33 of them including Sacagawea and Seaman (Lewis’ dog.)  Caroline purchased a book about Seaman when we were back in Washington DC. During our visit we walked to Netul Landing and completed our Junior Ranger books.

We stayed at the Thousand Trails campground in Seaside, Oregon.  It had a heated indoor pool which was very warm.  We walked to the wide beach and walked down a couple of quaint streets filled with shops and restaurants. The scenery here is so picturesque-the beach and ocean with the tree covered mountains as a backdrop.  What a great place to be this time of year.  It really wasn’t warm enough to swim, but no one told them….
