The Aspect Of My Life

Florence, Oregon

Port of Siuslaw, Florence
I didn't want to leave Eugene.  I had such a wonderful time reconnecting with friends and making new friends and spending time with my son...well, it was just a challenge to leave.

But then I landed in Florence on the Oregon coast and thoughts of Eugene slowly flitted away.  Maria has purchased a home in Florence which makes things even better.  When the weather is good there is nothing like being on the coast.  However, I was not prepared for the wind and rain when it came roaring in.  Maria and I were off looking at RVs and thankfully we returned to Minnie just in time to reel in the awning that I had erroneously left rolled out.  The awning suffered a minor tear and through some kindness on Stan's part and some repair tape, the awning will survive a few more years.

I found an RV that I really like.  It is 27', has two slides, an entertainment center over the cab and so much more storage.  The price is right, it has low mileage and is also a Minnie Winnie.  I have been pondering whether I really want to commit to a new home and part with my beloved Minnie. 

While I was sitting outside today enjoying the beautiful weather a car pulled up and parked right next to where I was sitting.  They are very interested in Minnie and after I gave them a tour they are even more interested in buying her.  I have asked for things to come to me, and it appears they are:).  Even more interestingly they are from a town by the name of Merlin.  The significance of this is not lost on me and now the ball is back in my court.

 I need to sleep on it and take another more serious look at the 27' because at this point, I really don't know what to do.


  1. My grandparents on my mother's side lived their last years together in Florence. They really enjoyed the town and the ocean.

    Very interesting, your opportunity. I look forward to the conclusion.

  2. WOW 27' 2 slides. Hmm sounds comfy to me. That is something I could live full time in.
    I wish you the best in your choice.

    You sure are in a pretty place.

  3. I have a 26 foot class C and it is very comfortable - space wise. Hope you get what you want.
