Myrtlewood Store in Reedsport, OR. Just amazing craftsmanship.
Myrtlewood trees are unique to this part of the country.
Myrtlewood trees grow in clumps. The leaves have a very unusual scent although the camp host said the leaves could be substituted for bay leaves
The store had a self guided tour through the Myrtlewood factory.
I'm a sucker for these cute animals.
Oregon Sand Dunes
Tall trees growing in the sand.
Walking through the grassy area.
Ah, we made it to the beach and the Pacific Ocean.
Conde McCullough Bridge in North Bend was the longest bridge along the coast when it was built in 1936. 5,305 feet long and rises over the water so boats can easily pass under.
The scenery is just so breathtaking.
I.L. Patterson Memorial Bridge, Ophir, OR. was the first in the country built with prestressed concrete. With its seven arches it is beautiful at night with its fiber optic lights. (We passed through before it was dark.)
It looks like sunset but the sun is hidden by the clouds.
We camped at Huntley Park, 7 miles east of Gold Beach, OR. Dry camping again, we have become very comfortable doing that. Price is right..$12.00 and along the Rogue River. We had a campfire again tonight. Doesn't get any better!!!!
