Westfalia Road Trip Day 16 – Cape Blanco OR to Crescent City CA

Cape Blanco Oregon is a pretty nice place to wake up, a little bit cool and foggy but very nice.  Nothing an early morning campfire can’t cure.

We decided to spend the morning at Cape Blanco and go for a hike to the lighthouse.  Before a big hike you need a big breakfast, Connie was on chef duty this morning.

Of course when traveling on a road trip with a baby you need to factor in time for naps.  Archer loved the Volkswagen Westfalia and was quick to nap on the comfy bed before our hike.

We hiked to the lighthouse and back which is about 2km each way.  We took the trails through the park on the way there and on the way back we walked down the beach.  We had the whole beach to ourselves so our Portuguese Water Dog Zucca got to run off leash and burn off some energy.  Some pictures of Cape Blanco…

We had a great time in Oregon, now off to California.  We had our first bout of bad luck when we got to Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, the park was sold out so we had to stay at Hiouchi RV Resort down the road.  Hiouchi is a pretty plain park with not much to review, at least they had wifi…in some spots.  Sleep
