It pays to check back!
Last spring we decided to do a surf/road/camping trip to the Oregon cost. On recommendations from some local surfing friends (thanks Anna and Heather!) we selected Manzanita, OR as our destination with the intent of trying out our cold water surf skills at Short Sands. Dates were picked, vacation applied for at work, and….well, there were no camp spots available. NONE. Zero. Apparently this place is in demand.
I decided to sit on it and see if we can up with a good backup. Hotels are great but add up quickly and we really wanted to camp.
Well today, on a whim, I rechecked the reservation website. ONE. SITE. AVAILABLE! Woohoo!! I snatched it up and am happy to report that we are camping at Nehalem Bay State Park in September!
It pays to be persistent! And after scouting out photos from Todos Santos last night to frame and hang up, I am really itching for some surf!
