Because we're just sitting, marking time, we have discovered a few neat things about the Eugene Oregon area that we didn't know such as:
The town of Coburg is a National Historic District and has buildings dating back to the mid 1800's. This quaint little town of about 1100 people has the old style traditional grass field type park including the central gazebo or bandstand. Images of the old movies and Mayberry leap to mind. The old buildings have been kept in use albeit re-purposed. One of the best is Nana's Cafe or Coburg Pizza. Probably one of the best pizza restaurants we've been in - and that means even the pizzerias of Boston and New York. I would have taken pictures but the subject matter disappeared way too fast.
I'm a fan of engineering and totally off the subject but what the heck. A really neat old train trestle:
Coming in from the coast as we did, we passed numerous farms and produce stands and were fortunate to snag Willamette cherries, apricots and the oh so sweet nectarines.
|Oh, and a picture of the local llama population.|
Probably the most important part of our trip down here is the friendliness of the people and the professionalism of the ARG (yep, I just had to go there with the pirate talk).
Hmmm, perhaps the fudge from Cabela's has something to do with it. Or the micro brews, or both...
