The two RV Gypsies had fun on the
Oregon Sand Dunes
May 11, 2009

Just outside of the campground, a massive area of large sand dunes called to the two RV Gypsies.

Lee Duquette struggled to walk up this very steep sand dune in the hopes of sliding down on some cardboard. Karen stayed below to take photographs, then will have her turn at the sand dune, if Lee succeeds.

ABOVE: After the struggle to reach the top, Lee discovered that the sand was just too soft to slide down. Talk about a major disappointment for both Karen and Lee, but mostly Lee because he walked all the way up the dune and then had to get back down.
 
BELOW: The two RV Gypsies hiked up a different sand dune to get to the Pacific Ocean. It proved to be a lot steeper than it looked, but they did it.

Looking back down the path at the car of the two RV Gypsies, shows how steep the sand dune is.

Karen wanted to go down to the ocean, but Lee did not want to.

This time, the two RV Gypsies did go down to the Pacific Ocean because Karen said she was going down with or without Lee.

It was not easy walking in the very soft sand up the dune - although it does not look steep, it was steep, and Karen was laughing so hard, and that made it even more difficult to get to the top of the sand dune.

Now it was Karen's turn to video tape Lee struggling up the hill. Perhaps someday the videos will find their way to this web site.
