... Klinkenberg, a columnist from the Tampa Bay Times who loves "old Florida." Great last full day of play in Florida.
Friday started with breakfast with Joe, good byes and we had time to stop at our favorite park in Tampa, Lettuce Lake Park. It was a WONDERFUL sunny walk through some very rich (birds and reptiles) area. Then onto to Orlando, airports and flights home.
Thanks to all of our family and friends who made our trip special! Home again.
... River from near its origin, all the way into town. It starts out so small, just a creek actually, then becomes this large river with whitewater. It’s so beautiful.
In several places along the McKenzie Highway we would hit large congregations of gnats. All of a sudden our face shields turned into something resembling a badly pimple-faced kid.
We arrived home with enough daylight that we could walk around our place and see ...
... hot springs and walked through the gardens on the property. It was all really pretty especially with the mountains in the background. The river that day was so clear it was beautiful as it flowed around the bend and under the bridge. We finished up at Belknap and stopped by the Tokatee Golf Course. Bev said that Will goes golfing here from time to time and it is gorgeous with great views of the mountains. Jared got out and took some pictures including the mountains ...
... it went on Gilligan's island--a four hour journey?) through a beautiful forest with trees reaching heights of almost 300 feet (football field size). This is the same trail that Nashea, Erica and I went on back in 1998 (when Erica---okay, I better not tell that part of that story)---and camped out overlooking the ocean. But the trail has changed, the signs are wrong or somehow we make a mistake cuz we are semi-lost. I ...
... like a new man. Admittedly one that had been a POW but a new man all the same.
The town was very nice, but still it was a town. Nice shops, nice pedestrian areas and benches and yet more places to eat and drink. We’ve been trying to cut down on our caffeine consumption as we’ve gone from drinking 3 cups of coffee a week to 3 a day – Annabelle had started to get caffeine headaches, so it was on to the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCourtyard By Marriott Eugene Springfield
This is my 3rd time staying at this Courtyard. I typically prefer Courtyards over any other Marriott chain mostly because of the Bistro. The Bistro provides a very decent breakfast and dinner menu, along with seating areas that provide individual TV's for you to watch your evening programs. They also have a very accommodating staff, clean and comfortable rooms, speedy internet, and a location right off of I-5. The only downside is the traffic during rush hour, particularly in the morning. If the Bistro is closed and you end up having to go across the street to get your Starbucks fix I would recommend walking because chances are you won't make it in a timely manner if you drive. The only other 2 things I take into account on whether or not I will stay again is the channel selection and pillow size. There are Marriotts out there who will remain nameless that think people enjoy sleeping on 7 individual square foot pillows. I am not one of those people, which is why I always travel with my own pillow AND blanket. This Marriott also has the NBC Sports Network, which during hockey playoffs is a major must have. So overall 3.5 stars, but for this particular stay, 4 stars.
