2005 Oregon July trip with Barb (Crater Lake)

I was always threatening to take my best friend from childhood on a trip with me.  We finally did that trip.  Turned out to be a lot more stressful for her then we ever anticipated!  Anyway---

We started the trip with a couple night on the beautiful Oregon coast.  By now my husband and I were Worldmark owners, so I had gotten a couple nights at the Worldmark Depoe Bay in a 3 bedroom unit.  My DAd joined us and was pretty much our driver for most of the week we were in Oregon.  My friend started showing signs that something was wrong, but we chalked it up to the chilly Oregon coast breezes, even though it was July.

 Of course we headed down the coast to show Barb the scenic coastline.  She had never been to the west coast.  We stopped in the little town of Depoe Bay and watched for some of the resident whales there.
 Then we continued on .
 Dad even found a tree stump on one of the coastal pathways that doubled as a chair.
