On the move again

Well we left the sweat box of Vegas 6-26 and drove to Carson City. Decided to stay at the Gold Dust RV Park. It is an OK place. We will visit Lake Tahoe and Virgina City before heading to my brothers place in Auburn Calif. on the 29th.

7-1 We made it to my brother Craigs place ok and we are just vegging right now. We did go to Lake Tahoe on the bike and it was great. Gloria and never seen it and was impressed. We also did Virgina City and it was nice too but a lot Central City before the gambling. We will be here till the 6th then off to the Coast.

7-8 We left my brothers on 7-6 and headed to Willits Calif to spend two nights at Sleepy Hollow RV Park. It was just a basic park with no tv,cable or cell signal but it was full hookup and nice to see. We took a bike ride to Fort Bragg to see the ocean and some seals and some real nice county side.
We left there 7-8 and got to Klamath River RV park Calif. Seems like a real nice place and we will be here for 7 nights. We even got to see two whales, a mother and her calf. They are in the Klamath River right now. Got some good pic's of them.  Will be heading out tomorrow to see the Redwoods.

7-15 Well we have left Klamath River and had a great time. Took the bike out on several trips to see the Redwoods. They are so great and sure are big. We left this morning and drove up the coast to Port Orford OR. We are staying in a small park close to the ocean. Not much room in here but they have full hookups, cable and wifi. What more could ask for? Well I did. I was talking to the guy who runs the place about getting a crab. He said right now I could not get one but he said he could. So he went to the dock and picked up 2 live ones for us and brought them back and showed me how to clean them. Yes I leaned to keep my finger away from the claws as one latched on to my finger. And yes it hurts. We will be here till 7/18 when we head for Coos Bay for 2 days.

7-18 Well we left Port Orford OR. and drove to Coos Bay OR. about 60 miles north. Had a good time in Port Orford as it is a small fishing town. Not much to see and do but we did get to the Coast Guard Museum and that was cool. Also went to Cape Blanco light house and did the tour to the top. It is the only working light house in Oregon. Also went to the dock and watched them pull boats out of the water. All boats have to be removed from the water as it is safer for them. Wind there can get over 100 mph. We are staying at a park called Midway RV  Park. It is nice with big sites. On our way here we saw a Super WalMart and had to stop and load up on food. Also saw a Papa Murphy's and I just had to stop and get a pizza fix. Will leave here 7-20 and head for Florence OR.

7-21 Ok we left Coos Bay yesterday and made the short trip to Florence OR. with no trouble at all. Got here to South Jetty RV Park and got checked in  and set up. Found this park to be real nice as it is in the trees and the sites are big. Today we took the bike on a short ride to the Sea lion Cave and that was great also went to the dock in Florence. Posted some pic's so you all can see them. We also took the bike to the end  of South Jetty road. It stops at the ocean and was a nice place to view the waves and look for shells. Sure was windy as I am told it is most of the time. Had trouble getting the bike to start and figured out the starter was going bad. Tried to find one in Florance but none to be had. Found one in Lincoln and will go up there when we get to Newport. Met some nice people in camp Tom and his wife and John and Sissy and others I cant remember there names. Played Bingo on Friday night and Gloria won a measuring cup and I won the black out for a $5.00 Subway gift card. like this camping thing as my luck is better :-)
