HELP!!

Okay, I am planning a road trip, scenic route. I will only have a day to complete this so I wanted to get the best of everything.

Depart Portland, Oregon around 1pm.

1) 26 West to 101 North

2) 101 North
1) Del Ray
2) Fort Stevens
3) Astoria Bridge
4) Lewis and Clark
5) Cape Disapoint
6) Leadbetter & Willapa
3) Hotel - probably Seaquest, in South Bend for the Night.

I am pretty sure I cannot accomplish all of these things in one day... LoL
Aside from driving time, and lets say I have about 5 hours to explore, which of those should I visit? Lighthouse & scenery for photography is the main deal! Unless one has a chance of finding more shells versus another one.


If I do leave out a big chunk, would it save time going I-5 North to 30 then starting around Astoria Bridge, rather than 26 to 101?


Any good restaurants along the way to recommend?

Thanks everybody!
Christine

You can do the first five in a day, I do it all the time. Your biggest problem will be tourist traffic so plan accordingly.

From a photography standpoint, drop off Fort Clatsop, but be sure to visit the Wreck of the Peter Iredale at Fort Stevens. Spend an extra 30-60 minutes in Astoria - the Flavel House Museum is awesome.

If you're doing it within the next couple of months, you'll have daylight well past 9pm, which should help.
