Down By The River Side

When we moved hotels, we shifted from a mediocre seaside view room to a fairly nice view of the Necanicum River, the estuary of which runs through Seaside.

The Necanicum is tidal here, and this was the view out my hotel room at low tide this morning. The building to the right across the river is the vacant condominiums that displaced the funky little hotel in which Lisa and I used to stay while in Seaside.

A few hours later when we came to the room around high tide, this was view from approximately the same angle.

The weather on Sunday was a fair bit more overcast than the chamber-of-commerce clear blue sky day they had here on Saturday. But Lisa and I got a whole lot of walking done on both days. My step counter read more than 27,000 steps last night and currently reads about 17,000 tonight, and we're not quite done yet as we'll have to go get something and bring it back to the hotel for dinner. We didn't get "lunch" until nearly 5 PM, after which we bought ice cream from Zinger's (highly recommended) and took a long walk on the beach on the way back to the hotel.
