So the Marine Corps Marching band is in town and we are hanging out at Keel Park. The park is surrounded by small business establishments. It's a quaint fishing village setting. There is Kitty's Kitchen where it is Christmas Forever............... oooops! Here comes the band
........and the Thai Cafe (the band didn't stop there)
The band was brought to Winchester Bay by the owner of the Sportsman's Cannery an ex-Marine...
If you like to fish there is the Salmon Harbor Tackle and Marine Supply Charter Office (What a mouthful) I liked the barrel, net and oar display.
The Portofino Market place where Scrabble Queen bought her rod and reel last year on sale.
Rhythm Hot Dogs had a cow skull...
My personal favorite name was the Fitzpatrick's Crabby Cafe.
then there is the "floating" residents like the Wet and Wild........
...and the band is still marching back from the Oyster House toward Keel Park past the Strike Zone II - I'm pretty srure there is a Strike Zone I and III maybe even a IV.
Best grape vine display went to the Anchor grill (one of my awards)
...and there is the band again walking past the Musemobile
Ed and Sharyn at the park discussing the metaphysical value of quantum liquidity in the cyclical sphere creation of a boiled egg....... or maybe something else
Other floating oddities included this House Boat complete with Mermaid mannequin and it's for sail mmmmm wait! I think that's sale. I liked the Ferret Crossing sign.
Looking West toward the Pacific Ocean from the dock - it was a very nice day.
Even this Blackbird stopped to enjoy the view as we drove along the coast.
From the Whale watching lookout next to the Umpqua Lighthouse we got a great look at part of the Oregon Dunes recreation area and the ocean.
As you can see in this picture Oregon has had a lot of rainfall lately.
The lighthouse is always worth a picture.
A little further along I took this one of the lighthouse from another viewpoint higher up the hill.
Finally we stopped for a picnic at Tugman State Park where Ed took some pictures. It was a nice Memorial Day Holiday.
