walking on the beachTHERE'S A SMALL AIRCRAFT FIELD for those of you who fly for fun. It's the State landing field known as Manzanita Airport. Some people fly in, park planes overnight, and camp at the adjoining Nehalem Bay State Park. Others, call when they are arrive, or pull out their fold-up bikes to get where they're going. This convenient airfield is just around the bend from Nehalem Point. As the plane flies, it's no time at all from airports at PDX, Hillsboro or Scapoose. A fast way to get to this wonderful escape at Nehalem Point.

A HEALTH CLINIC is located in Wheeler, across the Bay from Nehalem Point. There is ambulance service to subscribe to . . . and airflight is available . . . and good hospitals are north at Seaside or south at Tillamook city (each about 25 miles). Each hospital is well connected in Portland with physicians at Sisters of Providence or Seventh Day Adventist.

EACH NEHALEM BAY COMMUNITY HAS volunteer fire protection, police protection and a healthy list of churches. In a recycled school building there is a newly formed recreation district which has a Fitness Center, Kids' Place and a superb swimming pool for all ages. Volunteers keep this vital part of the communities of the Nehalem Bay going. One of the projects facing this versatile communities group is the regeneration of a small theater now existing in the Community Center.

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES come up every season through the efforts of the Tillamook Bay Community College, the North Tillamook County Recreational District, Neahkahnie Institute which encourages writers, and many art groups which hold mini courses via weekend workshops. You can organize a workshop on any subject your heart desires from tarot cards to senior kayaking. Just check in at the NTC Community office.
