Farther North To Lincoln City and A Correction

Lincoln City, OR.

49 deg. light rain, SE wind @ 14 mph.

Forecast = Overcast with rain, then rain showers in the afternoon. High of 52F. Breezy. Winds from the WNW at 15 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 100% with rainfall amounts near 0.4 in. possible.

Being that we only stayed in Florence for one night, there wasn't too much to pack up, so by 9:45, Jim and Linda were ready. Once back on US 101, it wasn't long before we got into some more of those twisty-turny road conditions that we had before. In fact, the photo below was taken when Jim pulled me into a scenic pull-out area to let faster traffic pass after we had been stopped for about 10 minutes for a road construction area.

Once past Yachats, the road improved some and we were able to make a little better time.

It was about 11:40 when Jim tuned me off of US 101 and pulled me into the Devils Lake RV Park on the North side of Lincoln City. We had only traveled 74 miles, but it took us 1 hour and 55 minutes.

The above photo is of the office and the photo below is the view looking from the office into the park.

This park is built on the side of a hill, (not a good idea unless you're going to do a lot of leveling for the sites), so most of the sites slope to the side. It's kind of hard to tell from the photo below, but my left tires are almost off of the ground. : ( 

Other than the sites being narrow and not being very level, this is a pretty nice park. It's very well maintained and the lady in the office was very pleasant.

My site has full hook-ups with 50 amp electric, free cable TV and there is free wi-fi service in the park. All the streets and sites are blacktop and like I said, very well maintained.

Being that we have plenty of time to get to Portland, Jim paid for 2 nights.

Oh, I made a mistake on yesterday's blog. : 0    I stated that we had traveled 2 hours and 15 minutes when actually we had traveled 4 hours and 15 minutes. That error has been corrected.

Did you know that On March 3, 1965, after several failed attempts; Cutler City, Taft, Nelscott, Delake, and Oceanlake incorporated as Lincoln City? When it was determined that using one of the five cities’ names would be too controversial, a contest was held to find a new name. “Lincoln City”, submitted by school children, was chosen from among the entries.
