Next stop OCF 2010

The Oregon Country Fair 2010

Wow! Wow again! This experience was truly amazing for both us and the girls. Can you say wild, wacky, eye catching, friendly, clean, green, warm, beautiful, lets just say it wow'd the senses. Here are some pictures of the 41st annual event.

Oregon part Tres

....from Lincoln City and the Devils Lake campground we followed the road south. We stopped at Cape Foulweather, Yaquina Head, South Beach (and had an awesome lunch), Cape Perpetua, Haceta Head (viewpoint), Florence, and on into Eugene. Brian was eagerly awaiting our arrival. That evening he took us to a viewpoint overlooking the college so we could get a feel of the city. We then went to dinner at Papa's Soul Food, the food was great as well as the area.
We started the next day with coffee and a pastry from a cute little bakery around the corner from Brian's, one of the great things about cities in Oregon you always have a bakery and a market right around the corner. I wish more cities would go back to the neighborhood markets, I loved Hawkins Market and Swanners as a kid. We then set out on our daily adventure. Brian navigated the trip for today which took us north to Salem and then to Silver Falls. It was breathtaking, I wish we had the time and the stamina to do the whole loop, which consists of seven beautiful waterfalls and a 8 hr walk. Anyway here are the pictures up to this point.
