Smoked Out!

It's a very good thing we're mobile. I awake with a pounding headache, coughing, sneezing, and am generally miserable. The smoke this morning is insufferable.  So, we skip our health walk (what a laugh that is) drive rather than walk over to the Cottage Cafe in the town of Rouge River for breakfast, return to the coach and hastily check out. So much for a week in one of our favorite parks.

On to the Seven Feathers RV Park in Canyonville. Here the air seems clear, and we can really tell just how smoke-filled the coach and Jeep have become. They can accommodate us for a week and since the park is really nice, complete with pool and workout room, we should be happy here.

No trip to Oregon is complete without a slice of  berry pie or cobbler, piled high with vanilla ice cream. I can think of no better place than the Creekside Cafe at the 7 Feathers truck stop to indulge. Within walking distance of the Popeye Express (trust me, this is a very good thing) you will find no better pie bakers nor a better selection of fresh pies. The fresh blackberry cobbler is to die for!

Now all that is left is a long walk or a workout. I probably need to burn off at least a thousand calories. Love this place. The air is clear, the the breeze is cool and the park is really nice. This is the first day of our trip we have been comfortable.  All told, we're enjoying the good life at last. If the winds should change, we can head towards the coast. Oregon has much to offer.
