Florence, OR

It rained overnight, big surprise. Slowly moving south, we drove another 25 incredibly scenic miles, to Florence, Oregon. There are several Scenic Viewpoints along Pacific Coast Hwy 101. This big RV would not fit into the parking areas for all of them, but one that we were able to stop at gave us a look at an ocean anomaly called Spouting Horn. We will return with the Jeep later to see what we missed. 6-second video:

Three Rivers Casino in Florence, OR, welcomes RVers to stay for up to 7 nights in their parking lot for free.  Then they have to leave for two weeks before they can stay another 7 nights.  We will probably stay maybe 3 nights here.

The casino gave us each $10 in free slot play when we signed up for their Player’s Club card. After paying for lunch in the restaurant there, and using the $20 slot play they gave us we left the casino with $86 more than we had when we went in. 🙂

We took the Jeep in to see historic Old Town Florence. Restaurants and shops line the main drag in this little fishing community.

The Siuslaw River Bridge, designed by Conde B. McCullough, was built during the 1930’s, funded through the Public Works Administration as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal providing jobs to struggling families during the Great Depression. It is a draw bridge, and a beauty.
