Mid Way RV Resort is a great spot to make side trips, something we like to do. Today we started west
from Centralia, WA to the Pacific Coast.  We walked along a nice path to an overlook above the beach.

 

 

At the end of the path we had a great view of North Head Lighthouse.

The path back (a loop) took us along the
light-keepers residences.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A short drive brought us to a very
nice Washington State Park where we enjoyed a picnic lunch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we took an easy walk out to a jetty where people were fishing.They were biting. We saw several steel-heads brought in as we walked along.

 

 

 

 

A little further along we were able
to take a short drive out onto the beach,

 

 

 

Later we caught another view of a
lighthouse from a distance, and saw a cranberry farm.

 

 

After driving along the coast road for miles we turned inland again and followed the Columbia River from it’s mouth back to I-5.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We passed by small interesting fishing
villages

 

 

 

 

 

and even a covered bridge.

 

 

We picked up I-5 near Kelso, and
then it was back north to home.  It was another great retirement
day-trip.
