Views From Siuslaw River Bridge #3 – Florence, Oregon

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is  parked at Thousand Trails South Jetty RV Resort in Florence, Oregon. I’ll depart here tomorrow.

I’ve been here several times over the years and have thoroughly explored the area. So while here this time, I’ll publish some earlier blog entries. Today’s entry was first published May 30, 2015…

Today’s subject…the Siuslaw (pronounced sigh-YOU-slaw) River Bridge in Florence, Oregon…

U.S. Highway 101 is the principal roadway  (mostly) along the shoreline of the western United States. It runs almost 2,500 miles through the States of Washington, Oregon and California. You can read all about this roadway by clicking this Wikipedia link…

Over the years I’ve driven about 99+% of this roadway, missing only the last few miles of its termination in downtown Los Angeles, California.

It’s a very scenic roadway, many times running right directly along the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Here in Oregon, traffic slows to a crawl during the summer jammed by the many tourists. I try really hard to avoid this roadway during the time the kids are out of school for their summer vacation.

But, in the Spring and Fall of the year, it’s a delightful place to be! There are many bridges along this roadway. Today I’ll show some photos of the bridge over the Siuslaw River here in Florence…

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken in the desert at Slab City near Niland, California…


On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. 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. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
