Exploring the North Bend/Coos Bay area.
Today we will be poking around finding out about North Bend, Coos Bay, Charleston, Bunker Hill. George wants to get his haircut. On Sunday? Hmmm?

11:30AM - Kings Table Buffet in Coos Bay.
We received email from reader Cheryl who wrote, "If you want to indulge yourself, the King's Buffet on the main street was pretty good and inexpensive. It's somewhat run down, but the fish and chips were amazing." Thank you, Cheryl! We love amazing fish and chips!

5PM - Day Camped at the Simpson Reef Overlook.
This overlook is southwest of the center of Coos Bay. There are a zillion California sea lions and northern elephant seals on the island rocks just off shore. There is a cacophony of endless barking.


There are a zillion sea lions and elephant seals out on those rocks!

6PM - Day Camped at the end of Cape Arago Highway!
Shore Acres State Park is a fantastic place. We are at the end of the road inside the Park. Visitors come and just gaze out at the endless waters of the Pacific Ocean. Many picnic tables near the cliffs overlook wonderful ocean views. A trail leads to North Cove. Below in North Cove, sea lions look up barking at the visitors. Wow!


The Oregon coast is a special place.

7:30PM - End of the day.
This park closes at 6PM. Are visitors going home? No-siree! We are staying to see the beauty of the this day's end!


Late Arago afternoon.


Sunset at Cape Arago.

9PM - Nite Camped along Seven Devils Road southwest of Coos Bay.
We were heading back to Coos Bay to make our Nite Camp, when we stumbled upon a road going to the Town of Bandon! Wow! Following this road, we found a large pullout, and made this our Nite Camp.
