We said farewell our new Canadian friends and set out on one of our longer days driving. The distance to Astoria from Lincoln city is 110 miles and it's all coast roads baby, which meant I would be behind the wheel for 2 and a half hours. We had prepared ourselves with a hearty breakfast consisting of a sausage sandwich, and scrambled egg on toast. All prepared with love by yours truly.

The drive was great with some spectacular views of the Oregon coastline. We stopped off a couple of times to take in the scenery and breathe in some of that fresh clean air.

Tonight we would be once again spending the night in a KOA cabin, but this was not just any campground. We would be partaking in the mother ship of all KOA's. This one actually has a $6 resort fee. But before we arrived at our luxury (Do you like luxury?) accommodation, we made a quick stop for lunch in the town of Seaside. Seaside for those of you that that have not had the pleasure, is the Southend of the Oregon coast. Complete with arcades and bumper cars. I instantly felt at home so we decided that we would book a hotel here for the following night. I'll let Les tell you all about that!

But for now I will say that seaside is a party town and we did it proud. Lunch was had at the "Firehouse Grill", which i would rate as my favorite meal to date.

Other than that it was a pretty low action day. I built another fire which if i do say so myself I'm getting rather good at. Other milestones for the day were clocking the 1000 miles completed on our trip so far. Also side note I really wish Les would stop singing the chorus from the Beach boy's classic "Sloop John B". For those of you that have not heard it, it goes like this:

Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, yeah yeah
Well, I feel so broke up, I wanna go home.
Not the most inspiring lyrics to hear while your driving down the coast. I just hope she is not trying to send me some kind of hidden message?
