After our morning walk on the beach, we drove to Old Town of Bandon. This vehicle was parked by your car. The building beyond it is the Big Wheel House that we visited after lunch to purchase some shirts and jam. We had some Umpqua ice cream as well. We needed dessert!
Phil was so hungry that he wanted to eat the boat but there weren't any crabs in the crab rings so he had to wait for our lunch to arrive. He had calamari and I had some type of fish. It was so good. After shopping at store that I mentioned earlier, we headed home. We had such a beautiful morning, even though it was a bit chilly on the beach. We had to wear our sweatshirts to stay warm. We crossed this bridge in Coos Bay. Can you see the rain drops on the windshield? Good time to leave, I guess. Phil was driving so I was taking a few photos as we went. Sand dunes to the left of us. Again, raindrops.
Good ol' American flag flying in the breeze in Reedsport, as we headed inland. Good bye ocean and sandy beach and lighthouses. I love it there. But it's always nice to go home to my own bed!
We stopped at this interpretive center for Roosevelt Elk. We weren't disappointed as there were a number of elk within viewing/camera range.
Cattails which have been a favorite plant since my childhood. I think they look like fuzzy hot dogs!
Rhododendrons by the parking area. They were in bloom before the rhododendrons in the valley bloomed (late May this year.) We stopped in Eugene to get dinner and then went to a mall to buy a NKJV Bible that was smaller in width, for ease of carrying on trips. I'd been looking for awhile since my girlfriend, Tamara, found a smaller one. All the smaller ones had smaller print than I liked. Mine is a nice slimline one, burgundy in color and silver on the edges. We both like NKJV and have been using it in our Bible study on Thursday evenings. A nice gift to myself the evening before Easter, with a coupon to drop the price by $10 from the Tree of Life. We had a nice drive home late evening and unloaded the car. There's no place like home.
Mug I got free from the motel for booking two nights prior to a deadline date. Nice addition to my huge mug collection that I use. It's get crowded in the shelf so I put this one a shelf higher. It's a fun item to remember our trip to Bandon. Thanks for sharing the journey with us!
