WB Part II


We said good-bye to our friends at Winchester Bay today; it was a fun 8 days spent with the Roving Rods.  We had never stayed at a Marina or crabbed before so it was a new experience for us.  We met some wonderful new friends and loved connecting with many others we’d met through the Boomers.  Besides catching crabs and cleaning crabs we took many long walks and enjoyed several evenings of cards with Dean and Judy and played Pegs and Jokers with Dan, Jenny, Bea and Ken and another evening with Jim and Diane.  Good times!!003

On the picture above, published on the Salmon Harbor RV site, you can see the Umpqua River as it meets with the Pacific Ocean.  The waters in the channel are very fast moving and at high tide, create some awesome wave action.  There was a Tsunami Advisory during the week because of the earthquakes in Samoa and then Sumatra but resulted in little more than a higher tide along the Oregon Coast.  Chuck and I drove out to where the river meets the ocean several times and enjoyed watching the swift current and waves rolling in from the Pacific.



Recently, Chuck and I have been using Windows Live Writer to create our Blogs.  It make writing and picture placement easier plus has many other options.  However, it takes a while to learn all of this SO, several of our friends at WB were interested in learning more and fortunately, Laura Brown offered to teach and share.  Here we are at our place; me, Fran, Dianne, Laurie and Judy.  We had a good time and learned a lot.  Thanks, Laurie!

Dean and Judy and Chuck and I rolled into WB together after having spent a couple of weeks together along the Washington coast.  Last night we enjoyed our evening meal together for the last time until we meet again this winter.  In true RV travel fashion, we once again proved the theory that its not were you gather but who you gather with! Here’s pictures of our RV parking pier picnic.

Tonight we are staying at the Escapee Timber Valley RV Park in Sutherlin OR. Our short trip today took us along the Umpqua River for most of the journey. The trees are starting to turn and we were treated to a lovely autumn drive in the bright sunshine.
