Saturday, May 26 –Thank you to all our Veterans and all those who are serving in any branch of the military. We are the Home of the Free because of the Home of the Brave.

The City of Brookings is having their Annual Azalea Festival this weekend. There are Azalea's everywhere. Marsha HAD to visit the Azalea Park. There was every color of Azalea imaginable. She was in Heaven.



Marsha loved this flower but doesn't know its name. Can anyone help her?unknow

We visited the downtown craft show and then the craft show at the harbor. They were both packed!

Brookings has a very nice harbor.Brookings harbor

They are having fireworks tonight over the harbor....not sure if we'll be able to see it from our campground.

We drove up to Harris Beach State Park to see the coastline and ocean. It is so beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous! This is a nice park with beach access. We might go up to enjoy the beach in the next couple days.

For dinner, we couldn't resist some Clam Chowder. We went to Sporthaven Maria, which has won the local Chowder Cook-off three times. It was delicious and reasonable priced. This was the best Clam Chowder we've tasted so far, but we have a long way to go before leaving “Chowder Country.” We plan on tasting several more bowls.
