Idaho and Oregon

This post is coming to you from the Port Orford, OR public library. We arrived at Humbug Mountain State Park on Sunday. Below are photos to bring you up to date on our travels.
On Wednesday we took a drive down the coast to Brookings where we had lunch at the Hungry Clam on the harbor. Great fried fish fillets, fries and hushpuppies.
We noticed this king crab on the restaurant wall last time we were here. We thought it was neat that it came from the Cornelia Marie, one of the ships on the Deadliest Catch program.
The marina right behind the restaurant. It is always fun to watch the boating activity and pelicans diving for fish. We have been so lucky to have great weather so far. Sunny days, 50s during the night and high 60s during the day. We will be at Humbug Mountain until Monday then it is over to Cape Blanco State Park (just north of Port Orford) for a couple of weeks. Will post photos of both state parks next time.
Our site at Clyde Holiday State Park near John Day, Oregon. We spent one night there on the way to the coast. There is a little creek nearby and the park is very well maintained...lots of trees and water sprinklers keeping the grass green. Just watch out for those hungry mosquitoes that come out at dusk!
Just a few different views of Three Island Crossing State Park where we stayed on the Snake River near Glenns Ferry, ID.
Okay, Karm and Bob...these photos are for you! One of our favorite places to eat in Glenns Ferry is The Stop. Good food, just ask Donnie about the Wompus Burger, and friendly folks running the place.
This osprey was raising two "young uns" near the Snake River. We enjoyed watching them in the evenings.
Here are our friends, Bob and Kathryn Wyman from Sandy, Utah. We met them two years ago while at the state park and were so lucky they "camped" near us again. We had a great visit and enjoyed a couple of meals and LOTS of ice cream with them. Bob is truly an ice cream connoisseur!! Love that Huckleberry!!
Rylee and Parker, this one is for you two! Grandma just had to take a picture of this funny looking little Alpaca. PaPa and I saw him on the way to Idaho. Looks like he had just had a "haircut" doesn't he? He was very friendly and I even got to feed him!
