On September 13, we drove from Newport to Gold Beach, Oregon, where we were once again very close to the ocean. Our RV site was right by the path to the beach--just over a few rocks and around a path, and there it was! We could hear the ocean again from the motor home, especially at night--apparently no one ever turns it off! :)

On the Rogue River we saw the wreck of the Mary D. Hume, a commercial sea that was launched into service in 1881 and sailed for the next 97 years. Unfortunately, it is now slowly sinking into the river and no one can stop it. When there were attempts to remove her from the water for restoration, she began to literally fall apart, so she was gently lowered back into the water. Perhaps it is fitting for it to end up a short distance from where she was built and launched.
