June 13 to 24, 2013
I am getting around to writing up our visit in Bandon rather 'after the fact'. We arrived home again last evening, having driven from Bandon to the Portland airport, via a lunch stop with my sister Liz in West Linn, to pick Rick's Mom up there following her flight north from Albuquerque. It saved her over $100 to fly into Portland rather than Boise, and as long as we were 'in the neighborhood', it made sense!

July 4th....not getting to this very fast am I? Now it will be VERY scattered memories!
We had relaxing yet busy days on the coast. Incredible sunsets nearly every night, a few stormy days of rain, and some gorgeous sunny days with little wind. Walks on the shore, along Beach Loop Drive. A trip up to CoosBay to do some major shopping, get Mom's car checked in regard to a recall, and visit the Myrtlewood Store. Games played most evenings with Mom, rotating each night among Quiddler, Spite and Malice, and Cribbage. It took Mom a few nights, but she got more comfortable playing Cribbage. I ended up the victor in two, Mom in one. Spite and Malice was VERY close - only a couple points separating us after 10 days of play.

pedicure and eventually she
did her fingernails just to match!!
Did we GO anywhere besides Coos Bay? Not really! Mom and I checked out the new cheese factory. It just opened back up early in May. Beautiful new building. We checked out the Farmer's Market being held every Friday and Saturday in the old fish processing plant down in Old Town. Grocery stores...and of course, what seemed like a daily trip to the church!!
I played chimes with the group Thursday night and again on Sunday the 23rd. They had missing people and needed the help.

games were REALLY close!
