Happenings on the Oregon Coast

We dont get a chance to blog very often while we are here, but here is a brief Show and Tell presentation:

We got to doggy-sit Dizzy for 3 days, while her family went away.  He reminds me so much of my pug, Rocky... really made me happy and sad at the same time.

We had SO much fun together!

We have both of our Harley's now, so on one of our days off last week, we rode up Hwy 101.

Another day off today, and the sun was shining (in between clouds).  We rode to Waldport, then East along the Alsea River, to Salmonberry Campground.  We are scheduled to camphost there for 2 1/2 months, starting August 1st, so we wanted to see what to expect. 
We're really glad we did, because we are now re-considering that assignment.  We may look for something else.  It's not what we were expecting, nor what we are wanting, for a few reasons.  So we will start looking tonight for other opportunities.

Its a short post, I know, but I am sitting in the truck over in the day use area, and Im sure Jeff is wondering if all is ok... so to keep him from feeling like he had better come check on me, I better sign off... till next time!

Carl Washburne SP - Relief Hosts!

We are traveling to Grants Pass, OR today... so I have a connection good enough to do a blog post!
We own a house in Grants Pass, and our tenants will be moving out in a couple weeks, so we need to look it over and meet potential new tenants.  We will bring back Jeff's Harley with us, so we can both ride... if we ever see Sunshine for more than a few hours!

Some views of the park and our site:

Beautiful Oregon Coast

Here we are doing our job!

Jeff even found an unopen bottle of beer in the sand!  But he didnt dare to drink it.  He wasnt that desperate.

Last week, we rode into Florence... beautiful ride.  We even treated ourselves to lunch by the water.

There are some great hiking trails in the park...

This creature washed ashore the other day... Doesnt it look like an elephant?

Ok... I cant end the post with that picture in your mind. 
Here's a better one to end with!

If you're in the area... Come See Us!

We even have a Guest Room!

Enjoying the Oregon Coast!

We are here at Carl Washburne State Park, North of Florence, OR.  Its a great park and awesome beach.  However, we dont have phone signal or internet.  SO.... thats why you havent heard from us.

When I get a chance, I will say more and post pictures!  Until then... know that we are fine and happy here on the Beautiful Oregon Coast!
