Hi from Medford Oregon!

We were on the 10:30 am sailing of the Coho yesterday to Port Angeles. It was a lovely morning in Victoria and we had a great last view of Victoria. The colours of the trees and the Virginia Creeper ivy on the Empress were perfect. It was a great send off! The drive to Tacoma was easy and the weather perfect.

We had a fabulous time with Robin and Sergio last night. Serge is an old car aficionado and brought our his baby blue Mercury Marauder to take us to Spuds (their local pub/bar) to meet all their buddies. Great beer, pizza, friends and fun. Every afternoon between 4-6 is happy hour where drinks are 3 for the price of 2 and free thin crust pizza! We finally made it home and Robin made great roast beef sandwiches for dinner. Their home is old and filled with antiques, we loved it. This morning we were up early, had breakfast and were on the road by 9:15. Last night Serge convinced us to go south on I-5 rather than east as we had planned. He told us it would be a much faster drive so here we are in Medford Oregon, just at the California border, instead of east in Tri Cities Oregon. I think tomorrow we will head east once we reach Mount Shasta, California towards Reno and then continue south from there. The drive today was not as hard as we had anticipated and I just LOVE my GPS. How I ever got anywhere in the past without one is beyond me.
