Full Moon Sets Over Tillicum

Just a quicky before we get ready for church…

I’ve been trying to watch for the best time to catch the moonset.  The fog hasn’t cooperated with me though.

It was cold last night so I knew the skies were clear.  Sure enough, I could see the full moon when I got up at 7am.

It wasn’t low enough on the horizon yet though.  So I walked up to the creek, north of Tillicum Campground, to see if the sunrise would add anything to my photo.

I always like the way the morning light lights up the crests of the waves.  The seagulls like to bathe in the fresh water of the creek.

We’ve got another week of sunshine forecasted!  What a great time to RV the Oregon Coast!

Hooded Mergansers

I found these Hooded Mergansers feeding on the other side of the Hwy 101 bridge.

Don told me what they were as soon as he saw the pic.  They look like a cross between a Bufflehead and a Wood Duck.  🙂

Tillicum Beach Campground, Central Oregon Coast

We sure enjoyed the beautiful weather today on Tillicum Beach!

We’ve got minus tides so we expect to see people out digging for razor clams tonight.

Tillicum Beach Campground is open year-round.  We have 2 loops open so there are more ocean front sites available.  7 electric (30amp) sites are available for RV’s.  These also have a water hookup.  6 are ocean “view” sites.

This is a Federal campground so the America the Beautiful Senior and Access, as well as the older versions (Golden Age and Golden Access) passes, get you an incredible discount.  Dry camping is $22/night or $11 with the discount pass.  An electric/water site is $28/night or $17 with the discount.  Notice that the electric/water sites are not a full 50% discount with the Federal pass.  This is because the electric fee ($6) is not discounted.  The Federal Government gives you a discount but the power company does not.

All sites are first-come-first-serve Mid-September thru Mid-May.
