Bandon by the sea – Bandon, Oregon
From the mountains, to the valleys, to the rivers, to the ocean we go.
We left Grants Pass to Bandon, Oregon, which is located along the coast. The trip was just over 150 miles and took us 3.5 hours in the RV. Located on the Southern Oregon Coast where the Coquille River meets the Pacific Ocean, Bandon, Oregon is 90 miles north of the California border.
The drive on Highway 42 between Myrtle Creek (near I5) and Bandon was a pretty 2-lane road in good condition, although it became narrower and the condition deteriorated a bit west of Coquile. There were a couple of mountainous and curvy sections along this route, but no problem for Betsy to make it (we were not attacked by any tree branches along the way). Besides she was just recently upgraded with new shocks and motion control that the drive has improved immensely.
By Monday we brave the rain and the cold and visited the charming town of Bandon where we had the freshest fish and chip ever. We ventured to the Cranberry Sweet store which was featured by Rachel Ray show at FoodNetwork. And boy did i have a great time at the candy store.
