To the Coast part 2

From Bend to Roseburg

Since we didn't get an early start at home, Nevada was too tired to continue on, we decided it was time to stop for the day at the Douglas County Fairgrounds were they have a Rv Park so decided to stay there for the night.Check out there site for prices on the park. I took these photos on the River next to the park

Here is the sign for fees of the Rv Park with prices

The sites are nice and level, elect & water, dump station seperate , included in price when renting spot, but i think there is a $3 or $5 charge if you just want to dump.
It also has the Douglas County Museum there which in all the 40 + yrs we lived there have never gone too. It was closed by the time we decided to go check it out. But they did have some stuff outside to look at .

If you would like to learn more about logging you can go to this website called Collier Logging Museum near Chiliquin Or. a really neat place with all the old logging equipment, a good place also for camping and fishing.
This building was the old Dillard Railroad station I tried to find some history on it but i got nothing to come up right now.

Here is some of the old stuff that was used in the days of farming, make sure that you click on photos for better viewing, notice the hay still in this baler, and the size of the bales.
Here is part of the parking lot that also leads to the Fairgrounds
Some great sky watch photos before the end of the day.
This was taken outside of Kowloons Chinese Restaurant that is a must for those that like Chinese food.I don't know anything about there food accept for there Mar Far Chicken which is to die for. All the chinese restaurants here in Bend have nothing like it and i have repeately asked why they don't open one in Bend. To no avail. but it is a definite stop for me whenever i go to Roseburg

This looks like a very nice park. I like the old train station and the old equipment. My family in Ohio always made rectangular hay bales, although in a newer baler than that one, and I was amazed when I saw my first round ones! Here in southern Indiana round seems to be all they make. Thanks for stopping by my quilt blog.

Always nice to stop early and get a few more photos in! Ü

Those two sky photos are gorgeous! The first one seems to be swirling the clouds and the last one looks like the sky is on fire!
