    Loved the whole story, especially Marina’s pictures. Glad she loved Oregon. We never tire of travelling that route in our rv. One of our favorite rv parks is just south of Florence right on Winchester bay. Sounds like you’ll return.

    Thanks, Kay. Yeah, we’re planning on returning to Eugene for Christmas next year. Then Marina can see what the Coast is like during a storm. Where’s your next adventure?

      Thanks, Justin. Nice compliment. They say the best writing comes from the heart. Forty years removed, Oregon is still close to mine.

    John, Ciao from the gorgeous Val Gardena!

    This is a lovely tribute to the Oregon Coast! That’s why we chose to live there after we left Italy. We sure enjoy the cool summers.

    One correction: an adult gray whale weighs about 36 tons! At birth they are about 1200 pounds. When you and Marina come at Christmas, let me know and I’ll show you whales during migration. I am a Whale Watching volunteer between Christmas and New Years.

    Thanks, Laurel. And thanks for the correction. Where do you live on the Coast?

      Lincoln City. Pretty busy in summer, but the winters are very quiet.
