For our middle of break trip we headed to the Oregon coast and met Steve's dad at Camp Rilea. Steve's mom had been visiting and caravaned along with us to meet up at Camp Rilea. We took the kids here a couple years ago over a Thanksgiving break. They loved it! This is an active military post that is situated on the north-western corner of Oregon. And just a hop over a sand dune and you are at the Pacific Ocean. The kids don't care how cold, windy or wet it may be they love to go to the beach!
The kids love seeing the Soldiers and salute each time they see one pass by. Grandpa tells them about the different equipment found around the base and this is a big hit with the boys! I mean to see real tanks and different artillery is just the best if you ask Jonny. He remembers all of their names too!
We take day trips from the camp to the surrounding area. Last visit we went to the State parks and earned Junior Ranger badges. This visit we went to the Tillamook Cheese factory and a Air Museum housing WWII aircraft. I will post photos of our beach adventures and the aircraft the kids got to sit in at the Air Museum.
More to come.....
