    Watch the Road Signs: No Place for Big Vehicles

    by glabah Written Jul 29, 2010

    Not so very long ago, Oceanside was a quiet and out of the way community served by an unknown dead-end road off of a relatively unknown branch loop off of highway 101.

    The roads are still set up that way, and many of the roads have very limited curves and tigh clearances, and are simply not set up for large vehicles of any sort.

    You may want to ask before you come here in your 40 foot motorhome and find there is no way to get it out of these streets, and no clearance for your huge side mirrors.

    Some of these streets aren't really that well suited for anything larger than a standard automobile, so even slightly oversize pickups will have trouble in some spots.

    Most of these roads are so marked with warning signs about the tight clearances and tight curves.

    Sea lions are really only a danger if you are a fisherman with a fish on your line. At one point, these mammals were on the edge of extinction, but they have made a huge comeback, much to dismay of many fishermen and dock owners - the sea lions like to rest on docks, resisting attempts to make they reside elsewhere. Protected by federal law, you can see them all along the Oregon Coast. They enjoy the cornucopia of seafood delights served up both inside and outside of Netarts Bay. You can see them hauling themselves out onto mudbanks, resting at low tide, waiting for high tides to take them out hunting for their next dinner once again.
