Family Reunion Stuff

It is now only 7 months and a few days until our family reunion! If you haven't already made your reservations, please do! I know the campground fills up fast. Don't forget there are quite a few motels, hotels and private beach rentals in the area. Here is a list of some of them:

Rockaway Getaway: privately owned condos rented through onsite managers. We've stayed here quite a few times over the years beginning when I was a little girl with Grandmother (Edith) and Grandaddy (Rufus). It was a motel back then. Now, each condo is decorated to the taste of the owner, has a kitchen, bathroom and one or two bedrooms with a living room and some have an ocean view. Pets are welcome in some of the units. Here is the link: The Rockaway Getaway.

Silver Sands Motel: We have stayed here before. Some of the rooms have kitchenettes. It is an older motel but I understand it has been remodeled. There is an indoor swimming pool. Here is the link: Silver Sands. The ground floor rooms have a west side door for easy beach access. I think pets are welcome here in some of the rooms.

Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce: Here's a link which will get you to more motels and hotels and vacation rentals. Places to Stay in Rockaway.  Rockaway has quite a few motels but I wanted to list those we have actually stayed at. There was another one but I won't list it because I don't remember which one it was!

Garibaldi, Oregon: Barview is between Garibaldi and Rockaway so you might want to check out their offerings. The link: Visit Garibaldi, Oregon.

Oregon Dungeness Crab is some of the best crab in the world, IMO.

There are a few rental homes on the street where we stay but they are HUGE. They would be good for groups of more than one family. If anyone is interested I could take a walk and get contact info.

In another post I will list restaurants, and in another I'll put shops to visit, sightseeing musts, etc.

For those of you who have never had the pleasure of visiting the Oregon Coast, all beaches in Oregon belong to the public. There are waysides everywhere with places to park and admire the view or to go down on the beach. The Barview Jetty Park has beach access, too. If you have questions about where to stay, what to bring, etc., etc., just post it on the Facebook group page, click here: Reunion Page on Facebook.

Ta ta for now,
