A half dozen deluxe yurts sit nestled in among the tall trees overlooking Lake Marie at Umqua Lighthouse state park. They have hardwood floors with bathrooms and kitchens.
This brand new workamping experience is a real joy for me. I get to be surrounded by forest with the ocean just a short walk away. I have a semi-structured schedule which allows me to be flexible.
Ooh, and they even mentioned having some potluck get-togethers.
There are lots of rhododendrons and huckleberry bushes and something called Oregon grape growing wild here. Very much like Pennsylvania.
Everyone here is happy and helpful. I fit into the hosting position with ease and have already begun plans to explore the area on my days off.
This fortuitous turnout makes me remember the character Dory from Finding Nemo when she sang, “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.”
