Fog, Bandon, Jam and Fulltimers..

 

Another sunny day is ours today!!! We went to our usual beach this morning..the fog had rolled in and gave the coast a whole different look.

Today was tourist day..we were off to the town of Bandon,about 30 miles north up the 101.

Bandon is a sleepy little fishing town with lots of little tourist shops..or acceleration points as Gordon likes to call them.

We spent some time wandering in and out of the stores..bought a few souvenirs, walked along the wharf..

then we went to 2 Loon Cafe to purchase our pulled pork sandwiches as per the recommendation of Gordon.

They were by no means a disappointment..DELICIOUS!!..we drove to the Coquille Jetty and ate our sandwiches,trying really hard not to SLOP the sauce down our fronts..Doug was the lucky one..me?..not so lucky..geez why do i insist on wearing white!!!


After lunch we drove through the residential area in search of a good vantage point to take even more coastal shots..

we had some great luck, walked on the beach, saw some seals sunning themselves on the rocks..what a great day!!! Once again we cannot believe how fortunate we are??!!!


On our way back to POV, we stopped to take a picture of the biggest USA flag we have ever seen..they grow them big in America!!!..

Once we arrived back at POV, Gordon and Juanita's newest Rv friends had finally rolled in... Paul and Mary{aka Boris and Natasha}. They drive a class A bus called "Bullwinkle" and they tow a jeep called "Rocky"

They are brand new to fulltime rving..lucky them ..fresh from the rat race of California..now its freedom on the road for them too..geez I hate them already..just kidding!!!


We spent some time asking a zillion questions and they were a wealth of knowledge and information just like our own "wise man", Gordon.

Yet another great day on the Oregon Coast..tomorrow I think we better get our chores done..that's enough ‘lollygagging’ around pretending to be tourists!!
