TravelPod Member ReviewsCastaway By the Sea Port Orford
This was probably the pick of motels to stay in, in Port Orford and once again we got it from the Lonely Planet Book. We stayed in a one bedroom unit with kitchen and lounge room with great views of the Oregon Coastline and the dock. It was well decorated with a comfy (but soft) bed. It was a reasonable price for the size of the 'apartment' and our host was welcoming and helpful.

Leaving Eureka, we had quite a slow start, after all we only had a bit over 3 hours drive to Port Orford, where I had decided we would stay the night.

So I sat, twiddling my thumbs, checking the online tracking page every 20 minutes. The second the truck from Coos Bay arrived, I casually walked over the booth and asked if anything had come in yet. He told me to wait another half hour for him to sort ...
... and very close to shore, a grey whale and her calf came up for air. They were rolling around, probably eating. Here we were again, in Oregon heaven. This called for Mo's. We stopped at the Florence Mo's for clams, fish, and shrimp. This means we visited every Mo's that exists. This is my favorite one. It sits on the tidal part of a river near fishing boat docks. We've seen people crabbing here and seals jump in and out of the water. After our meal ...
My first plan was to blog regularly... instead, my one daughter was worried about where her parents were because of lack of communication until day 3 of our adventure.
Day 1 - We left Victoria on the 10:30 Coho Wednesday en route to San Diego via the coast route... starting with Ocean Shores... We have been to Ocean Shores a number of times and lately we aim to go every year but it has been more than a year now... ...
