September 9 – move to southern Oregon coast

Today we moved from the Crater Lake area to Coo’s Bay, Oregon.  About 200 miles with the chocolate detour.

We visited Lillie Belle Farms artisan chocolates.  We picked up some chocolate covered bacon, lavender caramels, dark chocolate, and some very spicy chocolate.

Motorcycle wreck – We were about 15 miles from our destination when we were stopped due to a motorcycle fatality.  A truck and trailer came into a corner at the same time as a motorcycle.  Belinda backed the truck and trailer up about 400 ft to get to a pull in to turn around.

We stayed at the Sunset Bay state park at Coos Bay.  The Oregon state parks were very well maintained and often had electric and water hookups.  In other states we usually ended up picking privately owned campground.

Game played – Ticket to Ride.

Meals – bagel & cream cheese, Arby’s, Seafood restaurant in Coos Bay.

Prospect, OR to Coos Bay, OR drive
