|Subject: Re: Lesser known sights near your home town|
I guess it doesn't qualify as 'lesser-known sites, but having just returned from a relaxing 3-day camping trip on our glorious Oregon coast, I can only say: come visit! It's as lovely as all those calendar photos have always portrayed &can be as wild as you'd like. OK, it was a rare sunny 3 days but I probably saw 4 other campers. The dunes with their jeweled hidden lakes, the skeins of geese overhead, the sweet, sweet scent of hemlocks in the sun, the rosy pink of the huge rhododenrons at the woods' edge, the raucus scolding of the ground squirrels, the beckoning trails thru the foreshore woods....it's unique &wonderful.
