Another Rainy Day

It wasn’t raining this morning so we set out to explore right away. Yesterday we crossed this Conde McCullough Memorial Bridge north of here. We crossed it again today. When this was built in 1936 it was the longest bridge along the coast.

We went for a dive through the country. It wasn’t intentional, we took a wrong turn, but we just kept on going. We liked this house we saw and agreed that if we lived on the coast here why not make it look like a lighthouse?

Returning to North Bend, we found their lovely little boardwalk on the Coos Bay. It’s only about two blocks long, but it makes the shore so very nice for us tourists. A small boardwalk for a small town. There were only a few other people about, and we did not see any boats or ships going by when we were there.

And then just a couple of miles south of North Bend is the city of Coos Bay with their own boardwalk. This one is a little longer than the other one.

Noooobody out on the boardwalk today. And maybe that is because it started to rain while we were here. A nice steady rain, no wind. It just takes the color out of my pictures.

We took shelter in the pavilion and read up on the interpretive signs that told of the history of the bay. When the rain slowed we returned to the car and went home. The rain continued the rest of the afternoon.
