Tuna Run, 2017

Posted on Posted in Coast, Truck Camping, Uncategorized

It’s mid August, the dreaded County fair has come to an end, it’s hot and smoky with no relief in sight.  What to do?  Head to the coast for tuna of course!

When it is really hot inland it’s pretty common for the coast to be fogged in, cloudy and cool.  That was certainly the case this time around.  It was a welcome break after weeks of heat and quite a bit of wildfire smoke.

If you have never tasted fresh albacore tuna you need to.  Soon.  Then, you can start a tradition of making a tuna run.  We’ll see you there. Fresh off the docks in Newport, Oregon it’s one of the tastiest things around and you’ll be on your way in no time with enough tuna loins to last you a year.  We did just that and picked up some oysters and rockfish for good measure.

Then it was off  for a relaxed weekend enjoying the sights and sounds of the Oregon coast.

I can’t hear you!

 

The ocean provided the sights.

Tillicum Beach. It is August, right?

 

The fog hung in the air most of the weekend.

It was a nice break from the blazing hot weather of central Oregon.

I think we’ll do it again next year.
