5: WOW, the towering sand dunes were amazing! The Schelberts love the Oregon coast. I'm just wondering why we have never been here before.
6: I find it amazing that we have never been to Florence before. My little family loves the dunes.

19: California Girls were unforgettable,, fine, fresh, Fierce,, we got to unlock
20: Finally made it to California. On our way into the Redwood forest we witnessed a cougar getting hit by a truck not once, but twice. Poor girls had a good cry on that one.
21: Kind of funny how none us us wanted to get out to take photos of the trees just in case another cougar was out and about.
22: Whale watching on the Kalamoth River? Sounds kind of strange, but there she is. A 45 foot grey whale had been stranded in Northern California for more than a month after. She had a 15 foot baby and entered the river in late June. We were able to get out and take photo's of her.
23: Then when we got home form our vacation there was news that the whale had beached herself on the sandbar and died. Another sad day for the Schelberts.
