got jam??


this morning we drove to the town of Bandon. It is about a 30 minute ride heading north from Port Orford..…first stop was Misty Meadows…


The Keller family began making jam more than 30 years ago, using our own family-developed recipes. As our products became known and world spread, our company grew. We added a larger kitchen (1993) and a new store(1999), while continuing to maintain our traditional open-kettle method of processing. All of our products are still made in small batches of no more 18 jars per batch. Everything is cooked, jarred, pasteurized and labeled by hand to ensure that great homemade taste our customers have come to expect.





or call it Bandon-by-the sea..a small seaside town filled with scenic beauty and lots of charm..It is located on the southern Oregon coast where the Coquille River meets the Pacific Ocean..IMG_6678


we walked along the pier admiring all the wood carvings…



our choice for lunch?…a shared order of fish and chips from a busy little restaurant right on the pier…



we left Tucker in the jeep and wandered through a few of the little shops..window shopping..sorry, Bandon…no $$ was spent other than our lunch..


coquille river lighthouse..



we visited this beach two years ago…climbing down the stairs to the sandy beach below…today we just stayed at the top and admired the view..much to the dismay of  Tucker..


and so ends our tour of Bandon by the sea…IMG_6679


  1. Poor Tucker, he would have loved that beach!! Haven't been to Bandon in years but it is a nice place to visit. Glad to hear you had a good day.

  2. I would so love to be out there on those beaches and having some of those fish and chips. Sounds like a wonderful time.

  3. I always enjoy visiting Bandon. Sounds like another fun day!

  4. Beautiful pictures - again! :) That sure is a scenic area. Glad that you are having a great time!!

  5. I love Bandon, especially the jam, and always load up on Oregon's famous Marionberry. Bandon is so pretty, but always always windy and usually cold even when it's sunny. I sure would like to catch that beach on a warm day once in my life! Love your pictures of our home state while we travel your province! It's magnificent here in BC, truly magnificent!

  6. My feet would be dog tired walking in your flipflops the past few days! Great pictures... love the ocean.

  7. What a gorgeous place you went to!! I love the Pacific coast..Thanks for the tour!!

  8. We were in Bandon but missed the Jam place, too bad! More great beach shots! Love the Oregon Coast.

  9. love that sign!!

    we spent the night in an rv park there a few years back!!

  10. Got some great blueberry jam from Karen & Steveio in Wisconsin, Glad you guys are having a fun trip, tell Tucker to look at our blog and I will put a post about how Rigg's and Sadie got in trouble while I was at the Lake last week.Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.....

  11. Now I'm drooling for some of that jam. That wasn't very nice to show some great jam when I'm 3000 miles away...

    Poor Tucker, how is he going to survive if you keep teasing him like that? ;c)
