Always something new and interesting Alan. I didn't know about this Verne novel. You capture the atmosphere and history of a place in a snapshot. Wonderful stuff!

I think that in that part of the world it is more comfortable doing the journey via the PC than actually walking it; a little cold there at the moment.

You two are really have a great journey. I knew Oregon was beautiful but that is a wonderful scene. I guess I need to get the Tauraus out and take it for a spin down the west coast. My brother lives south in California, but I have been out there for years.

Hey Alan, You're getting close to my birthplace.

You and Amy are so well-read. You should put her on Goodreads. I'm sure others would love to know her ratings and recommendations.

I love that philosophy about the foot/feet in the water and on the sand. Did you say something about "Home and dry"? I forget and can't go back to check without having to type this out all over again.

I'm glad you have resumed your picaresque perambulations.

One of the nicest campgrounds around is here at Cape Blanco State Park with the lovely Cape Blanco lighthouse nearby. I hope you had a chance to "see" the lighthouse.

And then a stop at the historic Hughes House, a step back in time.
