We have spent the week with two couple who have been friends for many years. They decided to take a little road trip with us, and they were hoping for some place cool. And the weather has cooperated very well. Today was the first day that we did not wake up to fog but brilliant sunshine. With the scenery that we have here it is easy to let the days just go by.
Being as this group is all golfers we did find a course here called Salmon Run. As there were only four able bodied among us, leaving Ed & I on the disabled list, we decided that we would still view the course with out letting golf take our minds off the beauty of our surroundings. This course was amazing, it was craved out of the woods in the most ingenious way. We saw a lot of wild life, plus wild flowers galore. And the views! Oh, the views.

I was totally jealous at not being able to play this course. It was awesome.

We also spent a day on a 80 mile, mail boat run up the Rogue River. Our captain was very entertaining and had some tall tales. His day job was a pastor, bet he never had a dull sermon. He managed to do quite a few 180’s, and a heck of a lot of nose dives, with the boat, that left us all wet. But it felt quite good as we left the seaside the air warmed up rather fast.
The six of us are in the very back row.

The captain’s dog that went along with us. After we got under way he just made him self welcome any place he wanted to sit, but once we stopped, and he got wet, the captain wouldn’t let him roam. Don’t think anyone would have minded, he was a real love, his name was PUP. By the time the ride was over he was the only one who looked the same as when we started. Half way through we stopped for a huge chicken dinner, and by the looks of the laundry on the line, everyone worked.
Heading home, great day, great friends, it don’t get any better than that.
Tomorrow brings us to the end of the week, and we will be heading in different directions. Thanks for the Memories.
Life is good.
