Coos Bay, Oregon Bound

As much as the sights we’ve been blessed to see – its really become so much more about the people.

When we were just starting to hook up the Jeep to leave Sunday, who’s out on the 101 tootin’ the horn?  LOL   We had a nice little chat & exchanged contact info with Colin & Michelle before saying so long for now.

In & Out of Fog All Day


Coastal Sea Stacks

It was not the best day for photographs, but that is just Spring in the Northwest.  We did encounter quite a bit of fog today with only a few opportunities for pix.

The four of us hop-scotched up the 101 & when we finally found a pullout with no fog we stopped to take it in.  Not soon after, their coach is pulling in behind us.  They were stopping for a quick lunch with one helluva view!  We enjoyed the visit & quite a few laughs too.

Thank you Colin & Michelle for adding another special moment to our fulltiming life.  We always remark at what cool folks we have had the good fortune to meet since we departed DFW last year.  It is a pleasure to add you two into those moments & friends.  Many more happy years to both of you in your fulltiming adventures.  We know we’ll see you again in Canada or Texas 😀

Oregon Coast Pullout

We rolled into Coos Bay about the time we expected.  Our GPS gave us a bit of a fit one time, which included a 2 block loop through a small residential neighborhood :O

Having finally found our way to our next home, it was nice to see such a pleasant, well-groomed campground.  We’re only a block from the beach, lots of amenities (WalMart) in the immediate area & from our first night’s taste – great, fresh off the dock, seafood everywhere.

After setting up, we headed back into town in search of a very late lunch/early dinner.  The first place was closed on Sundays, but that actually catapulted us into some of the best seafood we have eaten yet at The Portside.   Mind you, we didn’t know the prices before we got there, but I will say that the amount of food you receive for the money, the taste & the no sales tax on anything in Oregon, would be worth at least one visit 😀

Grabbing our to-go box we were out the door headed for the coach.  We needed to take some measurements & make some decisions on the new TV George hopes to acquire & replace while we’re here the next few days.
