Leaving the Port of Suislaw dock. This is where I backed our boat down a ramp for the first time. I didn't do too bad, just a little readjustment.
Typical for Florence in the summer, the day started off overcast and cool. We could see that the clouds might burn off, but no idea when. I wore my winter coat and it was needed when we hit full speed. Pilot Randy assuming his natural position while I provided nagivation advice from the forward lounge.
The highway 101 bridge, as we are heading west bound.
Our condo, top floor very right unit. We didn't stay there because it was rented. We stayed at the Casino instead.
The upstream Siuslaw River has a whole different feel, as if the ocean was hours away.
A cute boat in Mapleton
HWY 36 bridge over the Siuslaw River, Mapleton.
The scenery upstream from the HWY 36 bridge.
I drove the boat all the way back to the port, because it was fun. Who's CAPTAIN now, huh?!
The "pirate boat" in Cushman...
The wharf at Old Town Florence. Gee look at that sky, pretty blue! Of course this was when we were getting ready to take out. All done with the Siuslaw for now.
The next day we took the boat out on Woahink Lake, no pictures of that. We circumnavigated the lake and browsed our dream lake houses. We saw a couple of jet skiiers, otherwise the lake was empty. I wish I had thought to get fishing licenses, it would have been enjoyable. The weather did the same thing to us again, cold and cloudy until we loaded up. We'll be back.
