Coos Bay OR, Shores Acres Gardens

In addition to the beautiful coast and sea lions, the Shores Acres park offers a lovely garden.  The entires area of hundreds and hundreds of acres once belonged entirely to the Simpson family who made their name in logging.  They gave a huge chunk to the state and then sold the remaining 650 acres to the state in 1941 for $49,000.  Lucky for the state and us.

Tomorrow we head north out of Florida!  Time to move on.  We'll be heading north and west this year.  Do enjoy Florida....in the winter,...
