Our drive along 101 was windy, but only took us about an hour to get up to our next state park...South Beach just 2 miles south of Newport. We were happily surprised again with a well-kept, clean, and green state park for only $22 a night. After we set up, we headed to Newport to explore one of the larger towns along the coast. That's not saying much since most of them are VERY small.
Keegan and Collin both finished reading Shrek 3 and were excited to see the movie
After the movie, we drove to the historic bay area to see the two clipper ships and to have a bite to eat at one of the local's favorite restaurants, Local Ocean Seafood. It's across from all the fishing boats in the marina and piles of "pots" for catching the fish. After dinner, we headed back to camp for a walk on the nature trail that led to the beach. It's raining again now, but supposed to clear by tomorrow morning. -Kelly
