Hey Nancy & Gang,
Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy!!!! You're coming to my neck of the woods!
I've been a bit out of the loop lately... trying to get ready to continue construction on the garage... and getting ready for my Mom & Dad's 10 day visit (in their trailer)... and then more friends... and then my nephew... and trying to rehab the Casita
In any case, I will call the campground tomorrow (Fri) and see wazzuup! Bullards Beach is indeed an outstanding example of Oregon's State parks! Millie and I live just one hour South, in Gold Beach... and at the very least, we will come visit during that weekend so we can meet some of you.
While you guys are in Bandon, MAKE SURE you go eat a lunch or dinner at Billy SmoothBoars just south of Bandon proper on the West side of Hwy 101. Uhmmmmmmmmm... EXTREMELY tasty French Dip w/mushrooms and Steaks at very reasonable prices!
Hardin Optical http://hardinoptical.com/
is also on the southern edge of Bandon... they have some MONSTER sized telescopes for sale
or just to marvel at!
And... if you want an inexpensive but, tasty breakfast, try "Foster's" in downtown Bandon... on the west side of Hwy 101.
And... don't miss out on a quick, FREE tour of "Bandon Cheese Factory"!
And... "The Station" in downtown Bandon has some pretty good chow, too! (across from Bandon Cheese Factory)
And... the Cape Blanco lighthouse is just 30 minutes south... but it's currently under renovation http://www.currycountyreporter.com/local.shtml
And... come visit ME in Gold Beach... and eat at Indian Creek Cafe, or Port Hole Cafe, and ride the Jet Boats at Jerry's or Mail Boats... or go Chinook Salmon fishing on the world famous Rogue River!!! See Jeff at Gold Beach Adventures http://goldbeachadventures.com/
to rent a kayak or book a professional Salmon fishing guide. They're all across the street or within walking distance from my cabin.
And... well... that's why we live here in our tiny cabin on the southern Oregon coast! Call or email if you have questions.
