We have been here at Pacific Beach about a week and I wanted to get at least one post on our time here. The facilities here at Pacific Beach Resort and Conference Center are adequate. The price is right but the term 'resort' gets overused a lot.
The view from the campsite is blocked by overgrowth and brush along the fence which was a shame. However beach access is nearby and we could walk a couple hundred yards down to it from our campsite.
We are in this area because we wanted to see the National Parks and Washington/Oregon coast in the Great Northwest.
One day we took a day trip to Olympic National Forest and saw the historic Lake Quinault Lodge.
Not far down the road was the Worlds Largest Spruce Tree.
Next we took a leisurely drive around Lake Quinault and into the Quinault Rain Forest. It was beautiful with lots of growth and tall trees.
We made the drive around the lake was a mix of paved and unpaved roads. It was fine with our Honda Civic but it signs warn again RVs making the drive.
Later, we concluded our 70 mile day trip after a stop at the Big Cedar on the West side of Lake Quinault.
It was an enjoyable day with lots of hiking and interesting things to see in the Rain Forest of Olympic National Park.
Yesterday, a few miles from Pacific Beach, we stopped by a produce stand at Copalis Crossing called, "Voss Acres Produce Market". It had a nice variety of produce and historical interest. Check out their web site.
The vegetables in the market were very inviting and we bought some tomatoes, zucchini and corn. We talked with Sharon some more and she was funny. I told here about the blog and wanted to take a picture with her and Pam.
If you are in the area of Pacific Beach, Washington near the coast we recommend you go see the Olympic National Forest near Quinault and make a special stop at Voss Produce Market in Copalis Crossing!
