Saturday, July 3rd: Hit the Road

We finally left Corvallis!. Prior to our departure and after selling our house, we stayed with friends, Scott and Karen Caul in Corvallis. Scott and Karen were most gracious hosts and we do appreciate their generosity in putting us up in their house for 2 weeks! During our stay, we enjoyed watching the World Cup, playing darts, golf and drinking Scott's excellent homebrew!

We headed off in the Oldsmobile towards Cottage Grove, Oregon, late in the afternoon. Cottage Grove was to be our first stop along the way as we wanted to bid a farewell to Maureen and Michael, our long-time friends. M & M own a nice, private 11-acre home in CG...it is always so relaxing to visit them! We enjoyed a stroll around their grounds, gardens and orchard. In fact, we were so relaxed we stayed an extra day. July 4th was nice and quiet and we also planned a little of our trip! Thanks for having us guys!
