After one short day in Sacramento, we started driving toward the Oregon border. We ended up staying in Red Bluff one night, the gateway to Lassen National Park.
On the way, we saw beautiful Mount Shasta.
We followed the Western Exterminator Guy for awhile too!

We finally made it to Ashland, Oregon, the home of the Shakespeare Festival. We had a very nice lunch at Larks Restaurant which is part of the Ashland Springs Hotel, a VERY tall building for the area! The main drag is quaint and old-timey. The shops and restaurants remind me of the way Westwood Village was in the early 1970s...kinda' bohemian and artsy.
We headed onward to the Oregon border and made it over to the coast by around 5pm. We stayed the night in Bandon. It feels so great to have cool weather and ocean breezes! We are making our way up the coast toward Port Townsend!
