After an iffy start (and a trip to Urgent Care where we found out Tryna has an intestinal virus) we headed north on route 395.
|Juniper Reservoir Resort||2013-06-21||Juniper Reservoir Resort
Even though the weather didn't cooperate (lots of rain), we had an enjoyable stay at Juniper Reservoir in Lakeview, OR. at this beautiful 8,000-acre working ranch.
|Central Oregon||2013-06-26|| Central Oregon
This area of Oregon includes the Deschutes National Forest as well as Lava Lands National Monument.
This Oregon central coast town is home to the west coast's largest commercial fishing fleet. It's both a bustling salty port and a popular tourist destination and one of our favorite coast towns.
This typical beach town has miles of sandy beach and dramatic ocean views. Unfortunately at this time of year, we didn't get to see much sun.
|La Conner||2013-07-31||La Conner
La Conner, Washington is a 19th century waterfront town and is the county's oldest community. It was the home to the coast Salish people from time immemorial with the first non-natives arriving in 1860. By 1900 the town had a population of about 1,000 with farming, fishing and logging as it's main operations. Today, it is known for its population of artists and writers.
Monroe prospered first as a logging community and later as a farming community. It was originally named Park Place and was renamed in 1889 for President James Monroe.

What can we say except we just love it here. Not only that but we got the site with a view!
|Seaside, Oregon Revisited||2013-09-15||Seaside, Oregon Revisited
The name Seaside is derived from Seaside House, a historic summer resort built in the 1870s by railroad magnate Ben Holladay. We stayed here earlier in the summer when the kids were with us but we love the coast so don't miss an opportunity to stay by the water. The only difference this year is that we have had lots of rain to contend with while here.
|Newport, Oregon Revisited||2013-09-25||Newport, Oregon Revisited
Our drive to Newport was beautiful but I'm afraid the inclement weather is following us south. Newport was incorporated in 1882, though the name dates back to the establishment of a post office in 1868.
|Bandon, Oregon||2013-10-02||Bandon, Oregon
Bandon is known as the Cranberry Capital of Oregon. It was rebuilt in 1936 after a fire destroyed the entire business district as well as most of the residences.

We don't usually take much time to sight see on the last leg of our trip. By this time we actually begin looking forward to being home!
