Today was a pretty relaxed day. Very little driving was done that’s for sure! We went on a nice long walk this morning around almost the whole campground which took a full hour. We saw three other r-pods!! We chatted it up with them and discussed our love for the pod.
Once we got back we started getting ready for our day in town. Mom took a shower first and then I headed to the shower house to get one, leaving her with the dogs. When I got back she had a story to share with me.
While I was showering she stepped in the camper for a minute and when she came back outside the dogs had disappeared! She looked in all the surrounding campsites since each is pretty secluded. She was starting to panic and was calling their names when she heard someone honking their horn. She ran over to the area and there were Sophia and Gonzo just walking along the path! My mom said the whole ordeal lasted about 2 minutes but that it felt like 2 hours! Ha! Looks like they were trying to come find me!
We drove around for a bit and then headed to our lunch location, Pelican Brewery and Pub. We got a seat out on the patio overlooking Haystack Rock! This rock was one of my main reasons for coming to Pacific City, to me it’s quintessential Oregon Coast. I got a beer sampler and my mom got a cider. We are some delicious food and just chatted for several hours. We enjoyed lounging in the sun, taking in the beautiful scenery, and people watching. The dogs were really well behaved!
We ended our night with another walk around the park to watch the sunset. All around the park are these little black bunnies and Sophie is obsessed. She believes it is her life goal to befriend all of them and the feeling is not reciprocated. Bless her heart.
