May 24, 2019 - Belknap Springs, OR

May 24, 2019 Overcast and misty. Walked to the secret garden behind the lodge. A lovely walk along the McKenzie River. The rain has dashed many of the rhododendron blossoms but the lawn and wildflowers are very pretty. Since we were last here, I think they have added what looked like a tree house temple. We have to move to Yale Camp about 3 miles west of Belknap Springs but still have use of all the Springs facilities. Dropped off some of our gear on the site. Then drove west as far as Blue River which really had nothing to offer us....

May 23, 2019 - Belknap Springs, OR

May 23, 2019 Bob didn’t get up until nearly 9:00 and we had a leisurely breakfast as the sun came up. We are in total shade which we generally like but is DARK! We didn’t really do much of anything but read sitting in the sun and Bob taking dips in the warm springs. The grounds are really lovely with lots of blooms, majestic firs, green grass, fountains, zen gardens and quiet. Did laundry and talked with a fellow camper who said they had booked their sites across the country through 2021. No wonder we are having problems! Intermittent rain...

May 22, 2019 - Eugene to Belknap Springs

May 22, 2019 Although we rue not being able to sit outside or having WiFi, Armitage County Camp is wonderful! Both OR and WA municipal camps are far superior to anything we have seen in CA. Private, handicap equipped heated bathrooms with hooks. Large clean laundry, folding table and kitchen sinks. Almost as good as NZ. Sorry, it is the little things that make a day! On a whim I texted my dear Sonoma friend Marnie, who grew up in the area, to remind me what she told me I should not miss! Her response helped frame the day for visits....

Sep 13, 2016 - Coburg to Belknap Springs, OR

September 13, 2016 Another beautiful day! Since we were in Coburg, its downtown a National Historic District, we drove through the main street that had antique shops and some nice looking, quaint little houses. Not a destination spot but worth visiting if you are there! From there we hopped on I-5 south for about 30 miles to Cottage Grove, the Covered Bridge Capital of the West. Most of the architecture is 100 years old and there are murals on most buildings. We never did find the one depicting Buster Keaton who visited in 1926 to make a...

Jul 1, 2007 - Sunriver

We spent the last two days with the Bull family (10 of them) ... they call themselves a "herd" in our guestbook. On Friday, six of us went to Lost Tracks for 18 holes of golf. Then, the Bulls had us over to our own house for dinner ... we rang the doorbell when we arrived. Saturday evening, we went to dinner at the Sunriver Lodge with the Bulls. We were celebrating Jack and Glada's 50th wedding anniversary. Dinner, the setting, and the company were all great!! Now, we're in Sunriver ... at 27 Loon. I guess we're "home" (this is the address...
