    We've kept busy the past two weeks with doctor appointments, our own and transporting family members, and helping Kay & Aki with yard and house work. We also visited and dined with friends and family and toured the McLoughlin House, the home of Oregon's founding father, John McLoughlin.http://www.mcloughlinhouse.org/about.html
    My Uncle Kay spent his 86th birthday in the hospital receiving his third round of inpatient chemo. He's a real trooper and is doing well, all things considered.

    We spent Labor Day night at "Camp Monaco" in Coburg to get our new convection/microwave oven installed. Tuesday we played some pickleball at Meadow Park and stopped at Harry's Berries for produce, while our oven was installed, then headed to Richardson Park Campground on Fern Ridge Lake.https://www.eugenecascadescoast.org/listing/richardson-park-campground/1068/
    We biked the park daily, kayaked the lake from Perkins Penninsula Park, took some country drives, read and binge watched Nos4a2.
    Sunday we headed back to Meadow Park for pickleball where we met Robert & Nancy. They winter in Palm Desert so we plan on getting together when we head south for the winter.
    A final stop at Harry's Berries produce stand in Coburg. What a haul! We purchased about 15 lbs of produce for $10.

    Wednesday we drove up to Anacortes, Washington where we caught the ferry to Friday Harbor to visit our friends, Gary & Carrie, at their vacation home on Brown Island aka Friday Island.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_Island_(Washington)
    As always Gary and Carrie were hosts extraordinaire. They kept us entertained, well fed and "watered". Yesterday Gary skippered their new boat to Stuart Island for a hike to Turn Point Light Station. https://parks.state.wa.us/593/Stuart-Island We also cruised by Spieden Island where we saw wild game animals,
    http://debgarland.com/?p=630 Henry Island, where our families vacationed for several years, and Roche Harbor. The highlight of our day was seeing a pod of orcas!

    Saturday we toured the Oregon Gardens with Kathy and Jim. It was even more beautiful than when we visited 14 years ago. I purchased a membership for Randy and I which included reciprocal admission at over 300 gardens throughout North America. Should come in handy as we travel east next year.https://www.oregongarden.org/
    We stopped for lunch and libations at the Gallon House then headed to Silver Falls State Park to check out Chad & Leslie's campsite and partake of the delicious fajita dinner they prepared. They have a great gig there... a huge beautiful site, volunteer duties they enjoy and nice folks to work with. https://oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkPage&parkId=151
    All in all a wonderful weekend spent with people we love. ☺️
