Stairs: Week 28 Photo Challenge (and 25)

These stairs are made from douglas fir and are in the Coos History Museum in Coos Bay, just around the bay where we saw the tall ships in June. Interesting museum. I didn't take any photos indoors except for a few on my phone and outdoors, which I showed you a few weeks ago.

I just realized a few minutes ago I was missing a photo challenge.....Travel. So I am going to have to fix my numbers, apparently. This was week 25 and I have Bokeh in that one. This is at the Fest of Sail, where the tall ships were in Coos Bay. So you get to see a few more of this trip. Freda B giving a sailing trip to people on the bay next to the Lady Washington ship, on the right. This photo was taken on Saturday.

Friday evening we were at the docks to see what was going on. Not a big crowd but we watched a ceremony with tribal Indians give gifts to two of the ships there. I've not got alot of time right now to show you that. Afterwards we were visiting with this man who is there for educational purposes. He was in the cannon shot the next day, which we went to.
 Pirate fun! And I met this man again Sat when I got my balloon rabbit. Same man, different venue! He actually made this flamingo!

The first thing we saw when we came around the corner into North Bend was this huge rubber ducky! This 61 foot tall, 11 ton world's largest rubber duck makes the bay at Mill Casio in North Bend her personal bathtub. She spreads happiness and joy to people of all ages. Mama Duck serves as an inspiration to enjoy the world's waterfronts and conserve our natural resources.
Well, my friends, another week is upon us and I must head into the kitchen to get dinner ingredients together and then finish a project for Bible study tomorrow evening. We've had a good day at church and a home to home dinner. Good food and fellowship.   Down side of things includes my girlfriend, Laura, has brain tumor giving her problems again. My uncle Nathan died on Monday. He was my mom's only sibling. Megan's still job searching and waiting to hear from applications. Prayers appreciated and hope you all have a blessed week!

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with comfort we ourselves receive from God."
2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Definitely will be praying for Megan and your friend. I love the big rubber ducky and the man with the flamingo. The ships are just gorgeous. Since our drive to Nebraska went so well this month, we're tentatively planning a trip up the Oregon coast in October. We want to start at the redwoods in N. California and work our way north. Sure hope we'll get a chance to see you as we passed through Portland on our way home.
Blessings always, Betsy
