Oceanside, Oregon: View from up over Oceanside at the Clifftop Inn.

We woke up to a fairly steady rain and decided the best thing to do was go to Depoe Bay for breakfast.  During the night a raccoon had gotten into our ice chest and stolen our bean dip.  (At least he didn't take any of the beers)  We heard the rattling of the lid on the ice chest so I went out to see what was going on and I didn't see anything till I peered over the side of the porch and then I saw a raccoon duck under the porch.  Little bugger.

We packed up and left Beverly beach fairly quickly and went looking for a place to have breakfast in Depoe Bay.  On the drive north the rain was coming down hard and the wind was blowing.  Not looking promicing for the weekend but the forecast claimed tomorrow would be nice.

  We found a place for breakfast and had a big breakfast of biscuits and gravy.  After breakfast it was still cold and wet and windy outside so it was best to just head toward our final destination in Oceanside.  In Lincoln City we got groceries for our stay in the place with a kitchen in Oceanside.

On the way we stopped in the town of Neskowin to see what that was like. From the highway it looks rather unassuming but when you take the side street off the highway there is a little State Park parking lot with a trail leading to the beach.  And the beach looks rather nice.  Worth a look on a drier day.  We took the road into the "village" and it has quaint and narrow little single lane streets leading past cute little cottage bungalows most of which are probably either summer homes or rental homes.

  We got to a spot with a trail heading out to the beach so we stopped and got out to take a look.  There was a nice little set of stone stairs leading down to a nice beach.  The steepness of the seashore make a nice seperation from all the houses up against the beach.  I think if you area going to be staying anywhere in Neskowin it would be tough to find a bad place to stay.  It just looks so cute.

Continuing on we took the scenic route through Pacific City.  It was still raining a little so we didn't stop at Cape Kiwanda.  We looked out on the beach from the boat ramp but the rain detered us.

We arrived at Oceanside and the skies turned blue.  Perfect timing.  We made our way up the hill to our hotel The Clifftop Inn.

  Check in time was 3PM and it was still a little early. There were no cars parked at the hotel so we ran around from window to window checking out all the rooms.  Each room has it's own little theme and is a little diferent from the others.  Looks like a pretty cute place.  It sits up on the top of the hill overlooking town, the beach and Three Arches Rock.  Pretty much every room has some sort of a nice view.  Eventually we were able to check in and settle into our room. We then went for a walk down the hill into town and took a little walk on the beach. The tide was high but we can still go onto the north beach where you have to take the tunnel through the headland.  The tunnel is pretty amazing.

  You leave one side of the other beach and pop out onto a completely diferent beach.  This beach is rocky and has views of sea stacks out in the ocean.  The tide is a little high so you can't walk the entire beach but even during high tide it is pretty nice over here.

Back at our room we set up a chair at the top of the cliff and watched the sunset.  From the spot where we had our chair set up we could reach the Wifi connection that the hotel had in the main part of their office so we sent a few e-mails of pictures that we took of the sunset.  Once it was dark we settled in for the night and made a nice dinner in the kitchen in our room.  With no televisions (or Verizon cell coverage) and the quaint style of the room combined with the beatiful setting it was a nice evening.
