We made it. 8 hours, 1 sandwich, 1 order of fries, 2 sodas, 2 bottles of water, a few ridiculous family revelations and about 1000 laughs later, we rode into tiny Bandon Beach, Oregon.
Just a few scenes from the ride up:
From lovely Williams, we headed north. I had planned on stopping in Redding for the Sun Dial Bridge but we were running so late that we kept going. Though we ended up stopping in Dunmuir. It’s pretty there.
Random stop at Country Junction. I liked the giant “FOOD” sign. Inside they had a few packaged fruit pies, Twinkies, chips, candy bars and beer. Good stuff.
The obligatory stop in Weed, CA. My husband likes to wax poetic about this fried chicken he had in Weed. He even texted us the address but I couldn’t find it. I don’t know if the fried chicken place is still in business! I might have really missed the fried chicken boat.
And now we’re here. Last night it was a little wine, a little pizza and a LOT of catching up. Some folks I hadn’t seen in literally decades. So now, I’m leaving the computer and going to the beach. See ya later!
