Our trip from Brookings to Florence, OR covered 158 miles with most of it beside the Oregon coastline. We did make one stop about half-way up near Bandon so Doris could replenish her wild berry jam supply at Misty Meadows Jams. We had found them when here in 2013 and she really likes their jams!!! That made the total trip take about four hours - lots of little towns along the way keeps your average speed down quite a bit.

We are staying at the Pacific Pines RV Park. We stayed here in 2013 and found it to be a very nice park with level concrete pull-throughs, 50 amps, cable, good Verizon coverage and an easy shot to the satellites. About the only negative is the narrow sites. They have these large rhododendrons growing between the sites for privacy and beauty but they are about six feet in diameter and thus take up about a third of your site, leaving very little room outside your rig! Most people are only here a few days and are gone each day sightseeing so the lack of space is not a detriment. We don't plan on doing a lot of sightseeing but just enjoying the cool weather. As I write this, it is a little past noon and the temperature outside is a breezy 61° - just about perfect! We stay inside most of the time so don't really need all that much space around us.

Like we did in Brookings, we will be posting updates periodically but not as often as when we are in travel mode.
