May 20, 2019 - Cape Lookout to Florence, OR

May 20, 2019 Several reported that the 5/18 report was truncated. I reposted so should be available. Was one of my more informative! Last night I had some minor drama. The photo review and menu dial is malfunctioning and as a result I wiped the entire day’s-worth of pictures. I tried finding/using an SD card rescue software but with compromised internet it was not going to happen. In the scheme of life I realized the loss was minor and told myself to get a grip and get on with it! Had to put our sunglasses on again today! We have traveled...

May 14, 2019 - Crescent City to Florence, OR

Up this morning early working on blog, the down for some breakfast at the hotel, loading up the car and ready for the day, And it is raining not a hard rain but enough to get you wet. I head on up the road filling up the car with cheaper gas $3.36 at gal. instead of $4.44 in other parts of CA, and into Oregon. Wow and it is still raining a slow rain just like the last time I was here back in 1975 but this time it is a lot dryer LOL (last time was on a motorcycle) . Stopping along the way at many of the overlooks and beaches, and round noon...

Another adventure

Mar 16, 2019 - Arrived in Florence

Ok whoever had 9:35pm won! We had a few stops for essentials and traffic through Seattle and Portland was a little hairy, but we made it and our little Inn is super cute and cozy and this tiny city is so far adorable. Looking forward to to a(not too) early start tomorrow, and some time to explore. Night night:)

Sep 14, 2018 - Florence OR – South Jetty RV Campground

Spent our last week in the Florence area at South Jetty. It’s another Thousand Trails campground. Sites are good, but there aren’t any activities. Well, there was a chili cook-off the day we arrived, but only 2 campers signed up for it, so we didn’t go. Nothing else was scheduled after that. Guess we got spoiled with all the stuff up at Whalers’ Rest. Most days, we went to the marina to check on the salmon and to watch the seals. Wanted to see if anyone was catching anything. We usually saw fishermen cleaning one or two salmon. One night,...

Sep 11, 2018 - Goodbye to Caitlyn

I dropped Caitlyn off at the airport (sad to see her go) at 8:30 then headed for the Oregon coast. It was unfortunate that Caitlyn had to travel on her birthday but that’s just how things worked out. Once I got off I-5 it was mostly farm country until about 25 miles before Lincoln City, which is where I hit the coast, where it became semi-mountainous and forested. Turned south on US 101 at Lincoln City. Took the Otter Crest Loop off 101 stopping at Cape Foulweather, Otter Crest State Scenic Viewpoint, and the Devil’s Punchbowl as well as a...

Sep 6, 2018 - Florence OR – Harbor Vista Campground

Roger found a guide to take him fishing, but has to wait a week before he goes. Meanwhile, we’ve made a few trips down to the river to see what’s happening. We’ve seen a lot of fish being cleaned, so hope that means Roger will get his limit of salmon. Roger and Bridget have taken a couple of walks to the beach and have seen seals. It’s really rather chilly here, so I haven’t gone down there. I swear the last time we came through here, it wasn’t this cold. It’s been getting down in the 40’s at night. Good thing we have a space heater in...

Sep 2, 2018 - Florence OR – Siuslaw National Forest – Sutton Campground

With Thousand Trails, if you stay in a park for more than 4 nights, you have to spend 7 nights outside the Thousand Trails system before you stay in the next TT park. This is the start of our 7 nights out. This is a great forest service campground and we enjoyed taking time to just sit around and relax. Roger even baked a cake, which is always a good thing!

Jun 17, 2018 - Florence, Oregon

June 13 through 17th On to another favorite spot which is Harbor Vista Campground in Florence, Oregon. This time we tried a new site number 6. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the park had upgraded and put in sewer hook up in some of the spots and ours was one of them!!! The sites are really secluded and quiet. We enjoyed lots of campfires in our new Solo Stove fire pit (picture attached). We also had a great BBQ with our friends John and Neal. They drove over from Eugene for one afternoon. We also went downtown to the old Town...

Jun 10, 2018 - To the Oregon Coast

/// June 10, 2018 Florence, OR Pacific Pines RV Park A Travel Day: Woke to overcast skies but no rain. With another short trip scheduled for today we held off our departure until 10:45 A.M. Our route today would be on Hwy 58 to Eugene and then Hwy 126 to Florence. We no sooner hit the road and it began to rain. The windshield wipers got a workout today. It seems they seldom get used and today was no doubt the longest drive we've made in the rain in a very long time. Other than wet, the road conditions were okay good. Traffic was moderate...

May 27, 2018 - A Day Trip to Florence

We took a little trek down to Florence to meet up with our friends Manny & Elena on Saturday. We stopped in Eugene first to see Family (Steve & Earline) & do some catching up & delivering a hug to Earline from Jodi. Our trip to Florence was awesome, we all were enjoying the beauty of the forest & traffic was light. We stopped off at Manny & Elena's home before the six of us headed into Florence to grab a bite to eat at Mo's (which has become a favorite eatery for us). After a bite we took a drive up Hwy 101 to take in the views of the...

Aug 26, 2017 - I checked into South Jetty TT Florence, OR

Saturday I went for a ride in the sand dunes. This was a new experience. I know this is really big in Arizona also. This was enjoyable but I am not going to go spend $6,000 to $13,000 to by one of these side by sides. Then you also have to have a trailer. This is a big business in this part of Oregon.

May 31, 2017 - Tahkenitch Lake (South of Florence) & Mercer Lake Near Florence

On May 25th we were out on another drive (on Hwy 101) & we came upon Tahkenitch Lake. The lake is at 2,118 acres & is one of the larger lakes along the coast of Oregon. Before heading back to the park, we took a quick drive by Mercer Lake (near the Elks Lodge).
