Florence, OR - July 15, 2017

We have been here for 19 days, and it hasn't rained once. This time of year, the Oregon coast is perfect. While the rest of the west is having a heat wave, it has been mid 60s to middle 70s here. Nothing but blue skies!

Gene continues to improve daily. Maybe another week or so and we will head back to central/Western Washington.

One day, Donna and I went exploring the Jetty. It is where the Pacific Ocean ansd the Siuslaw River meet up.

There are alot of sand dunes around Florence. The ORV folks have a ball around here. Quite a few sand boarders too.

Rumble Bunny says hi!

One day, we went with Gene to Izzys Pizza and Buffet in Newport. I didn't get pictures, but the place is up on a hill with a great view of the beach. The food was good too.

After lunch, we drove to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. One of the prettiest ones on the coast.

We stopped at Walmart on the way home. I saw this Jackfruit.

I never have seen one this big. Crazy..

We had company come visit. Nell & JP came along with Nancy. Gene's wife Cyndi worked with these ladies at JC Penny in Washington a long time ago.

We all went out for dinner to the Surfside Restaurant in Heceta Beach.

Good company and food too!

The next morning, we all went out to the Three Rivers Casino for breakfast and to try our luck on the slots. It was a good breakfast, and I donated $10 to the machines.Donna was the big winner. She came away with an extra $20.

Life is Good!

Fergs .... out!
