East Coast Comes to Oregon

Our pals from Mass. (I know I can't spell it, won't even try, it's the state where Boston is), Jim and Pam, came out for a good visit to celebrate Jim's retirement after 50 years at Firestone and also he and Pam's anniversary.  We did it up right - lots of wine tasting and sightseeing.  They then headed out to Boise to see their son, spending the day and night in Bend, and after visiting with Jim Jr., heading back to PDX to catch a flight home.  We truly enjoy our summer visitors - and this year we have lots - and always hope they leave the ranch having had a great time here in our bit of paradise

Jim, Pam and Dale head into the Tillamook Cheese Factory

A beautiful view from a little coastal wayside in Wheeler, Oregon



Dale, Pam and the ever patient Jellybean await Jim and I in Wheeler

Cool bike rack decor and the old train depot above

At Camp 18, Pam poses with Bigfoot

The sign Jim's been looking for since I first told him about Camp 18

Still looking at the cinnamon roll sign

Do you see what I see here?  Camp 18
