We went downtown Florence on two different days. We walked along the main street and the port. We stopped often to read each building's sign that gave us a short description of their history. One building actually slid into the Siuslaw river and was pulled back out by the owner. The building is still standing and being used today.
We did not see any sea lions, but we did see some birds sitting out while soaking up the sun. We noticed this Great Blue Heron has been in the same spot both times. He is sitting on what looks like an old wharf near the town's park.
|Go away. I'm trying to sleep here.|
|We need a "No Wake Zone!" sign.|
In the meantime, the Cormorants were enjoying the sunshine and drying their wings.
That is the old Siuslaw River Bridge that was built by Conde McCullough in 1936. I am always amazed by all his bridges with the beautiful art deco design and by the fact that they are still being used despite their age. He built bridges to last more than a lifetime. Of course, the ODOT does a great job of maintaining these beautiful bridges.
|oh yea, that feels soooo good|
|Titanic move over|
On The Cutting Board
I'm moving right along on my next custom order. Of course, it helps that the pattern is already to go from Nancy Halvosen's book. The snowman is pretty simple.
Well, time to pull out the sewing machine and get them done.
