Haul'in ass

Arrived in Florence, Oregon yesterday. Got setteled into a small quaint RV Park across from a beautiful lake, Lake Woahink. The parks name sake and right off HW101 about 5 miles south of Florence. The famous Oregon Dunes recreational area is right behind the rv park.

Today we visited with Bill and Darlene Lambiaso. Bill and Darlene took us on a tour to the north jetty where the Siuslaw Rv emptys into the Pacific Ocean. Then a drive up 101 a few miles to Heceta Head Light House and beach area. The customary road construction was in full swing along the way. Returned to town and enjoyed a delicious Mexican lunch with the Lambiasos. An assult of the Oregon Dunes is planned for tomorrow.

June 22

WOW, we just got back from a fast and furious trip on the Dunes. This day was one of those rare Oregon blue sky sunny day at the beach. The Silva's and Lambiaso's bravely challanged our better senses and went for the wildest ride on the dunes. I am proud to say we all survived the ordeal with just a little sand in places that we didn't realize sand could get. Pictures have been added
