    That's a heckuva RV! Was there a reason not to take the lawn chairs down to the beach, rather than behind the guardrail? Any swimming or rock climbing opportunities? Looks like a very nice weekend visit.

    Did you ever get passed at an outrageous speed by a small, dark blue BMW Z4M? If so, that was me. I have had a 17 year old from France visiting my family and he & I did a lightning tour of western Oregon yesterday: Bend->Salem->McMinnville->Lincoln City->Depoe Bay->Newport->Waldport->Corvallis->Eugene->McKenzie River->McKenzie Pass->Sisters->then back in Bend before dinner. He returns to France today.

    Doug... nice spot and pics! Do they allow boondocking there? Wish we had the time to run down and visit you too for a bit... but too busy remodeling the house. :frown: Soon, we will be ready to hit the road again.

    Wonderful pix Doug. You've really taken a liking to that Pany 7-14! Truly a special piece of glass and you wear it well!

    Cheers-

    I liked the others, it was interesting to see your motorhome, but this photo is really nice - looks like a very peaceful spot. Nice temperature as well, we've had a wickedly hot summer, it just cooled off habit in the last two weeks. I'm a winter person and prefer cooler days! :biggrin:

    Awesome spot! Will have to check that out. And your images have a wonderful quality to them... you sprinkle some pixie dust on that sensor?

    Hopefully we can meet up again as you come this way... before we head south?
