Short Move November 4, 2013

Lakeside, Oregon High 52 Low 45

I’m beginning to see a pattern in the weather. It rained most of the night, was not raining for about 2 hours this morning, and then rained off and on the rest of the day. At one time it was raining a lot harder than anything we have seen while we have been in Oregon. It still beats the snow and cold they have had in Utah.

We left the Casino at about 12:00. We had about a 50 minute ride to the next RV Park. This one is Osprey Point RV Resort. We came here with Passport America for about $22.50 per day. This is a little more than I was expecting, but like everything else, the prices have gone up since Passport America published its book. This price does include cable TV with about 75 channels, 50 amp power, and Wi-Fi at our fiver. It is pretty fast internet.
After we got parked and hooked up, we drove to Coos Bay to see one of Cindy’s old transportation directors from Ogden Utah. She worked for First Student in Ogden and requested the transfer. Her name is Becky, and she and Cindy had a short, but nice visit. It has been three or four years since she moved to Coos Bay. She is now the transportation director for First Student (the school buses in Coos Bay).

We then went to Wal-Mart for a few things, and then tried to go to one of the quilt shops in Coos bay, but for the winter it is closed on Monday. We don’t know if we will get back to this particular store, but we shall see. 

The three lighthouses I had on the post the other day are:
First: Yaquinq Head Lighthouse. It is 3 miles north of Newport. It is a 93 foot tower 162 feet above sea level. It is the tallest on the Oregon coast, and was first illuminated in 1873.
Second: Yaquina Bay Lighthouse. It is at the north end of Yaquina Bay bridge in Newport. It was in service for only 3 years, from 1871 to 1874, before being replaced by the brighter Yaquina Head lighthouse. It is 42 feet tall and 161 feet above sea level.
Third: Heceta Head Lighthouse. It is located 13 miles north of Florence. It stands 56 feet tall and is 205 feet above sea level. It was first put in service in 1894, and is now the brightest light on the Oregon coast.

This is a picture explaining how the lighthouses were put into law.

We then went back to the fiver and are relaxing after our grueling drive today. LOL

Thanks for visiting.
