On the Coast Again

We went for a drive the first day out and went to Bandon for some cheese curds, fudge and a seafood lunch on Coquille Bay. I like this area for the view and the goodies and taking pictures of the area around the bay. People relaxing


.... and writing letter home to England like Allison and Michael. Wonderful people on their way to Idaho. They were taking off from Eugene so I suggested, if they had time to visit the Eugene Saturday Market (the last Episode) and that seemed excited about going there for vegies and tie-dye tees.



others on the bay were crabbing...



...even others had been kayaking



but there is always that beautiful Coquille lighthouse overlooking all that happens in Bandon, Oregon



Day Two Shore Acres

One of our favorite places to visit Shore Acres Botanical Gardens is a demi-Eden. Nestled into the Oregon coast between Cape Arago and the sleepy town of Charleston


Aside from the formal gardens there is a Japanes Water Garden

and even Black


and even one called Zorro


There was even some orchids


...and some other flowers of all kinds. I call these organic sunshine



and back at our RV space, in the weeds, behind the picnic table, on the hill, was a beautiful, single

California poppy

Quote of the day
We are Stardust
We are golden
Caught in the devil’s bargain
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden ~ Joni Mitchel from Woodstock
