Coos Bay, Not Picturesque Day
We knew our luck could not hold out…the overcast along the coast did not go away all day along our route today. Both of the above are Pacific Ocean shots, trust me…
We passed over a number of bridges…none of which were captured in the glory that Conde McCullough designed them in. Many of the bridges along the Oregon Coast were designed by McCullough…he loved to incorporate architectural details such as Gothic spires, art deco obelisks, and Romanesque arches.
As we got closer to Coos Bay the route went a bit inland, and the sun did shine a bit. Wish it shined along the ocean because that ocean view is very pretty.
We are at the Mill Casino in Coos Bay. We have been here three times now, and each time it was with a different motorhome. Only thing is, they charge $15 now…previously it was free. The sun did shine a bit, but I didn’t get my picture of the place until the overcast came in. Temps have been running anywhere from low 60s to low 70s.
