Yesterday, I left Portland, and headed for the Oregon Coast. I didn't get much sleep the night before and my eyes didn't want to stay open, so I stopped halfway for a coffee. I fell in love all over again with my JetBoil and my AeroPress. Coffee took all of 3 minutes to make and I was soon back on the road.
I swung by my favorite spot for fried oysters (thanks Jane Conboy!)
|After eating HALF of my oysters, I remembered to take a photo.|
CENTRAL OREGON COAST SHOWERS:
This morning, I met up with fellow Nomad Karri Konga, and we spent time watching whales, then shot over to Beverly Beach State Park for a shower.
While there, I asked the ranger about other possible shower spots and he gave me this handy dandy map booklet. So here you go! I'll post photos and a map of northern Oregon Coast later, but here are the photos and map of places along the central Oregon Coast where you can get a shower for only $2!
Anywhere you see a shower icon, you should be able to drive up to the ranger station, pay your $2, and get a parking pass. Cool beans, huh?
NORTHERN OREGON COAST SHOWERS
By the way, I've highlighted Tillamook, because you can get showers at the local YMCA for $1 -- they have both early morning (5:30 - 8:30) hours and evening hours. Call for more info.
SOUTHERN OREGON COAST SHOWERS
ALL OF OREGON
If you stop in at any of these State Parks, you can pick up a booklet which lists State Parks all over Oregon, including the Gorge, Central Oregon, Southern Oregon, Willamette Valley - with maps and a list of facilities.
And it's FREE!
Get a danged shower!
