At Home in Hiouchi RV Resort

Our Last Drive Through the Redwoods

Final Views of the Redwoods

Our First View of the Oregon Coast

Today was moving day--about 130 miles up US 101 to Coos Bay, Oregon. We had to say goodbye to the beautiful redwoods. But, we said hello to the grand Oregon coast. US 101 goes from cliff hanging near the coast to over the coastal mountains for a short distance. As we drove north, the weather cleared and the beaches, rocks and waves just got prettier. When we got to Coos Bay,the wind was about 20 mph from the northwest and the temp was about 60! Got to love it!

In Coos Bay, we stopped at the Visitor's Center to get the schedule of activities for the area. The Farmer's Market is Sunday morning and there are great drives to see the coast. The lady in the center was really great! After that we walked around downtown to see what was there and came upon the local quilt shop--Andrea does quilting. Michael wanted a quilt with lighthouses on it and they had all the Oregon Lighthouse and a few California ones also. So all that was how adventures happen while you travel in the USA!
