Today started out with somewhat clear skies but the rain had stopped. Loaded up the car, had our breakfast and then headed off west to Florence OR to see the dunes.
We ran into some rain along the way but it had cleared up by the time we arrived in Florence after another enjoyable drive. We stopped by the visitor information center and a rather large thrift store. It started to rain as we left there for a short drive to the dunes but when we got out of the car the rain had stopped, the sky cleared and we were able to enjoy some time on the beach.

We left the dunes area, picked up some lunch at Safeway and headed south. Next stop was the Umpqua lighthouse. Beautiful spot with some awesome views of the ocean. We had hoped to see a whale or two but being late in the whale season there were none to be seen. The sun was still shining when we left Umpqua and headed for our hotel in the Medford OR area.

An early start tomorrow will see us on our way to the Muir Woods and San Francisco.
