The early bird catches the worm, my BFF Patty says, and yesterday she was right. One of the things I stress about ... it's ridiculous, I know ... is finding a parking spot at the Thousand Trails Parks. My membership lets me stay up to three weeks in any park, FREE. Well not exactly, I pay a yearly fee of close to $500. Based on the average night's stay anywhere else, after about 17 nights, the rest of the year costs me nothing. I always have reservations, but never for a specific space.
I left early yesterday, requiring fuel in Tillamook before heading out. Leaving early is always good traffic wise. I breezed through all the construction and right through Seaside without stopping once, arriving earlier than I expected. And there, what to my wondrous eyes should appear but my old site from last year ... empty as could be ... right up front. Holy cow I'm a lucky camper!! Stress free until next week when I do it all over again in Long Beach!!
First stop ... it's a tsunami of pastrami!! The Tsunami Sandwich Company has the best sandwiches in town. Almost at the end of Broadway Street where the turnaround is, you definitely want to stop in here for grub.
The Chance Family and I found this little place a few years ago and ordered up the best pastrami sandwich EVER!! If there's two of you, you'll want to split this monstrosity. Sandwich and chips, $11.00, extra for a soda. Seriously, look at the amount of meat!!
It's huge!! This pepsi cup is at least 9 inches tall, and you can only see HALF of the sandwich. This is where the doggy bag comes into play. The juiciest, leanest, thinnest sliced pastrami ... it's the bomb!!
Stuffed to the gills, I admired the flowers growing up and down the street, although since it's been so cold, they aren't nearly as fabulous as last year. I even checked out the wild berries growing just beyond my rig, but alas, they are only beginning to flower, so there's no berries to be had.
My all time favorite clothing store Ter-Har always has nice things that fit. Not cheap mind you, but most of the blouses I've purchased there have lasted several years. That was my one and only splurge ... except for maybe ice cream, which will be later on in the week!!
Today Betty Graffis is coming to visit and I can't wait. I think the last time I saw her was several years ago in Newport. It will be fun to catch up!!
