Sixes To Florence, Oregon

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 94 miles from Sixes to Florence, Oregon. The entire trip was on U.S. Highway 101 which I have driven several times before. I plan to depart from here June 5th.

I’ll slow my pace and spend the rest of May and 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.

Here are some photos I took along the way…

The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine.

Cape Blanco State Park Beach – Sixes, Oregon

The motorhome is parked in the yard of a friend. I’m planning to leave here later this morning. Now that I’ve arrived here, I’m planning to slow my pace and spend the rest of May and 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.

Yesterday Cheryl and I drove in her car the about two miles to the Cape Blanco State Park Beach.

I started by taking photos in her yard…

Yesterday was sunny at 65 degrees. Today’s forecast is cloudy/sunny and 59 degrees. A bit cool, but delightful and refreshing.

Thousand Trails South Jetty RV Resort – Florence, Oregon

Mary has safely returned home from a trip to Turkey. She’s resting, catching up on emails and unloading and editing the many photos she took on the trip. I expect her to catch up with me sometime in mid-May somewhere in Oregon.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 94 miles from Sixes to Florence, Oregon. The entire trip was on U.S. Highway 101 which I have driven several times before. I plan to depart from here next Monday.

Cape Blanco Lighthouse Point – Oregon

Mary has safely returned home from a trip to Turkey. She’s resting, catching up on emails and unloading and editing the many photos she took on the trip. I expect her to catch up with me sometime in mid-May somewhere in Oregon.

The motorhome is parked in a friend’s yard at Sixes, Oregon. Yesterday Cheryl and I rode in her car to the Cape Blanco Lighthouse Point four miles distant so I could take some photos. I’ll depart later this morning.

I started with a few in her yard…

Sixes, Oregon

Mary has safely returned home from a trip to Turkey with her 14-year-old grandson. I spoke with her on the phone yesterday. She was pleasantly exhausted and will spend the next several days resting, catching up on emails and unloading and editing the many photos she took on the trip. I expect her to catch up with me sometime in mid-May somewhere in Oregon.

Three days ago I drove the 168 miles from Blue Lake, California to Sixes, Oregon. The entire drive was on U.S. Highway 101, a road I have driven several times before. I’m parked in the yard of a friend. I’m planning to leave here tomorrow. Now that I’ve arrived here, I’m planning to slow my pace and spend the rest of May along the Oregon Coast.

My current parking spot…

Mary and I last visited Aaron and Cheryl here on October 3, 2011…

DSC00617

We last saw them on October 8, 2012 in Apache Junction, Arizona…

I first met Aaron and Cheryl in February, 1997 and we had been fast friends since that time. Sadly, Aaron passed away on February 26, 2013 doing what he really loved…dancing. He was truly a unique man…very funny and interesting. I miss his friendship greatly. Since that time Cheryl has had to carry on trying to adjust to widowhood. My visit with her here has been both trying and beneficial. The first day she cried a lot. The second day not quite as much. She has told me more than once…I’m living with my memories.

They were married 23 years. She has created a “memorial shelf” containing his ashes and other articles he liked…

She now lives alone with her two cats. Here she is with Charlie…Lucky was out and about when I took this photo…

She has finally gotten around to selling their 1996 36′ Elite motorcoach…

If you or someone you know might be interested in it, It’s on a consignment lot in Mesa, Arizona. You can read all about it by clicking this link…http://www.sstautorv.com/pre_owned_detail.asp?sid=04613611X5K6K2014J7I41I47JAMQ6760R0&veh=3703844

It’s in excellent condition and she’s only asking $9,900 for it. It you have an interest, you can email her at cccat47@gmail.com

Yesterday was cloudy/sunny at 59 degrees. Today’s forecast is cloudy with an occasional shower and 63 degrees. A bit cool, but delightful compared to the three days of mid-90’s I was in four days ago!

U. S. Highway 101 – Southern Oregon

Mary is returning with her 14-year-old grandson from a trip to Turkey. I expect her to catch up with me sometime in mid-May somewhere in Oregon.

The day before yesterday I drove the 168 miles from Blue Lake, California to Sixes, Oregon. The entire drive was on U.S. Highway 101, a road I have driven several times before. I’m parked in the yard of a friend whom I’ll tell you about soon. I’m planning to depart here on Wednesday. Now that I’ve arrived here, I’m planning to slow my pace and spend the rest of May along the Oregon Coast.

Today I’ll show some photos taken during the second half of the trip. About 80 miles in Southern Oregon…
