South Jetty Road – Florence, Oregon #1

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails South Jetty RV Resort in Florence, Oregon. I’ve been here several times before. I plan to depart from here June 5th. I’ll slow my pace and spend most of June along the Oregon coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

Today’s subject…the South Jetty Road – Florence, Oregon…

Less than one mile south from the City of Florence, the South Jetty Road takes you out to the Pacific Ocean.

In the below Google Earth image, TT marks my location …
