Sunday Update

After returning to Brookings to attend church at Living Waters Foursquare, I said my final goodbyes to Oregon. I’d love to return again someday… After church Larry & I did a car run of our route for next week to figure out exactly where we’re going to stop each day.  It has to be a…

Smith River to Crescent City

It wasn’t a particularly scenic day, but it was interesting.  It was mostly rural to start, then suburban – including a bridge crossing of the Smith River, a herd of friendly cows, a kind-hearted stranger, and prison bars. Then the arrival of my sweetie! Spotlights This Week: Always: Hope Chapel Missions Charity Spotlight: Intervarsity Christian Fellowship Church Spotlight: Crescent City…

Ophir to Gold Beach

I’ve walked on beaches in the areas I’m passing through, but today was the first day I actually walked on a beach as part of my day’s route.  After a recommendation by my host mom, I diverted from the highway and walked on Bailey Beach for about a mile, ending at the jetty where the…
