When Dave departed Likely Place, the 180 mile drive to Eugene was relatively easy. Dave parked the motorhome at the usual place, Shamrock RV which is down by the river. However, this visit will probably be our last to this park, as they have had to change their park. Instead of about 50 overnight spaces with plenty of room, now they have 6 or 7 spaces. Those remaining spaces have plenty of room right on the river front, BUT they are like parallel parking spaces. Even though the price is right, $28/nite or $14/nite with Passport America, they are not the only RV park in town....

With a visitor, Linda, our sister in law who has never camped or RV'd on board we head for the Oregon coast and the lovely town of Newport. It'll be a short 3 day stay in the Thousand Trails Whalers Rest for us, just enough to show Linda what we do while on the road. This, to satisfy a little of her curiosity and get her a little vacation... so with many walks on the beach, several meals at our favorite haunts and walks around the park, it was time to leave a get back to Eugene. In Eugene, we were taken to a Raptor Center, which act as a recovery place for injured birds and such. All of us were thoroughly educated and interested.

The visit short and the time went by way to fast, it's time for us to hop aboard and get over the mountains to the Bend Oregon area for yet another short visit of about 11 days.
