OREGON COASTAL BEAUTY
Monday morning, June 3rd, we drove north to Florence and found the library for internet. While I made the latest posting, David took the truck and camper through the local car wash, trying to remove some of the accumulated road grime.
Back on scenic highway 101, heading north, there were gorgeous views …
I think this has to have been my favorite day of driving...but, I reserve the right to say that again...as many times as I want. Today we drove from Florence up to Tillamook...cow stank and cheese country...and stank...windows up kind of stank!

The grounds are lush, clean and beautiful...but the bathrooms in the loop that we were in had only cold water..and a remote and rather cool environment is wanting for at least a warm cloth for a face wash at the end of the day.
