Karen and I are leaving for a trip to Bandon, Oregon. We will camp in a yurt at Bullard's Beach State Park. Lots of beach, estuary, and tide pool exploring by foot. The weather is expected to be clear and cool this week, and Interstate 5 should be passable without tire chains. Bandon is about 35 miles south of Coos Bay, Oregon, and this small town is set alongside the Coquille River.
This week we will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and my 71 birthday. Lots of good memories and good accomplishments for both of us and our families.
We are both now fully retired - Karen in June of 2014 and I in June of 2016. Both of us are in fairly good health and in cheery moods.
