Thursday, June 9th

Then we headed out of Astoria to work our way south down 101. Maggie informed us that they filmed for the Goonies in Ecola Park. We drove to the park, which is just north of Cannon Beach and it does look like the area that they filmed Mikey's brother riding on the bike when he goes off the side and when they climb up the hill and figure out the shack is the entrance point.  From that point you can see the lighthouse and the rocks that aligned in the movie. We decided not to pay the day use fee so we didn’t get to go out to where you can see a good view of the lighthouse. We did head in to Cannon Beach and parked to walk to the beach. We could see the rocks that Mikey uses to figure out the location of One Eye Willie’s ship and we could see the lighthouse from afar.

After Cannon Beach we decided it was time to head back towards Portland so that we could pick up Jared’s bike before the store closed. It is a good thing we left when we did because we were in tons of traffic. We got the bike with no problem though and it is all fixed. We then headed back to the RV to take out Nash and relax some.
