More Oregon...

We spent two weeks in the Bay Area, which is made up of Coos Bay, North Bend and Charleston. It is a beautiful area plus it is not as isolated as Port O. Lots of restaurants and places to shop (there's even a WalMart! Civilization! Yeah!!). Coos Bay and North Bend are so close the city limit signs are back to back. Coos Bay has quite a few historic buildings filled with antique stores, coffee shops, tea rooms and cafes. It reminds you of the downtown areas of the 1950s before shopping malls became the norm.

Here is Donnie on the boardwalk near downtown Coos Bay.

After Coos Bay we stayed a couple of nights at Cottage Grove, Oregon in a little private RV park. The town is really quaint with old buildings and a covered bridge walkway right in the center of town. While there we drove a 20 mile loop southeast of town to check out five more bridges.

This is the Dorena bridge built in 1949, one of only two you could actually drive through.

Currin bridge built in 1925. This one is my favorite, I guess because of the color.
