Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

Our Stay at Seaside Resort in Seaside, Oregon


Seaside Resort in Seaside Oregon is our 7th stop on our travel journey. We didn't have to drive far from Long Beach RV Campground in Washington. Seaside Resort is in a great location close to a lot of attractions, adventures, shopping, however the resort is a little bit far from the ocean. 

We arrived in Seaside RV Resort on October 25th 2020. The resort has two gates - The North and The South, but to check in we had to go to south gate. The resort have full hookups but the south side is only 30 amp and the north side are 50amp. So, after we checked in at the ranger station (she's really nice) we had to drive a block to turn around and out the south gate and into the north gate. 

We drove around the campground looking for "The Site" but we didn't have much choice since it was a bit full. We pulled in to a site, parked, leveled, slides out, then when it's time hookup the water, we couldn't find the water source. We looked around, puzzled, why there's no water?  anyway, we decided to move to the next available site which is a corner spot. I was happy because it's a better location. We later found out the water source for the spot we were in was under the tail end of our motorhome (new to us) that's why we couldn't see it. 

We stayed in Seaside resort from October 25 until November 08 (Two weeks). We had a great time. Even though some of the amities are closed due to covid-19 we still got to enjoy our stay there. We played basketball and tennis. Went for a walk and rode our bikes around the parks. But the great thing about this park is so close to a lot of places to go see and do. Here are the list of places and activities we did while staying at Seaside Resort.
