About 8 months ago many of you posted a wonderful set of options to see when we were in the Portland area. If you remember I was unable to go to Cannon Beach, Mo's, the tower in Astoria, etc.because I got too sick to go. However, my son and his fiance took all of your suggestions and went to these places.
I'm doing better again and so we are going up there on Sat. for a 24 hour trip. Here's what I'd like to do and let me know if it sounds realistic.
We're flying into Portland at about 9:30 a.m. without having to check luggage. My son will pick us up and knows the airport well so no worries about taking too much time there. Say we are on the road to Cannon Beach by 10:00 a.m.
We will stop at the little stop over (I forget what it was) on the way to Cannon Beach. I told him to do it and he liked it. So I think we will get to Cannon Beach at lunchtime. Eat at Wayfarer and then fly kites on the beach. Sound realistic...time, activity, lunch?
Then drive to Ecola Park and walk awhile...though not a far distance since we'll be taxing my level of energy by this point. Say we stay there an hour or two max.
Maybe stop for a snack (ice cream, but where?) and then off to Portland or go around the Astoria way to get to his house in Vancouver, WA. We'll be working on putting together his mountain bike once we're there at his house. (1 hour max.)
Then out to dinner and they drop us off at the Heathman Lodge since the Lodge was so kind to take me in when I was too ill to travel last time.
I don't want to go to Mo's since he already went there and I wanted to take in Ecola Park so he had new memories with us and his girlfriend.
Is this a realistic plan or too much?
Would it be better to take the same way back to Portland or go the way through Astoria since he lives in Vancouver?
Thanks...you did well on the suggestions last time. I appreciate the help.
