September 16, 2014 - BF - Newport Oregon Adventures

    Buttercup here, reporting for duty! On Sunday 14, 2014 we rode our bikes up to some sand dunes and other fun things to do.
    On Sunday, we all rode our bikes up the highway onto a bridge that has about 2.5 ft across the sidewalk. It was a very nerve racking walk. When we got to the other side, we had to bike uphill for a while and then go down a long, curving road down to some sand dunes.  We locked up our bikes and walked up a small hill.  On the other side, there was...
    A couple of sand dunes sloping down to the ocean that were so soft and sandy. As I walked across the warm sand, I kicked it up in the air and it floated away in the warm breeze. Then, I ran forewards and jumped down the smooth soft slope, ran strait to the ocean, and felt how COLD the water was. I ran right back to where Mom and Dad were, and yelled to Flunky that I would give him $100 if he came down to the ocean with me.  What he didn't know is that I would be paying him with Monopoly money!  We played on the beach for a while and then got all sandy in the dunes.  After that, we left and biked back up the hill to Sandland Adventures.
    There we played a game of Minigolf and then rode go-carts around a track at about 20 miles an hour!  It was really fun.  Then we took a dunebuggy tour for an hour.  We rode down steep sand cliffs, up and down sand dunes and next to the ocean as the tour guide told us all about the dunes and the animals that live there!
As you can tell, we spent a lot of time that day outside in Florence, OR! Fun!
Hi "Flunky" here,
     We had a great time in Florence Oregon.  Me, Cindy, Mom, and Dad played minigolf.  Mom won and I was third.  Then we drove go-karts around a track.  I was too small to drive by about 5 inches.  Dad drove and I was passenger (next to him).  Next we had to get on a dune buggy for a tour for about an hour.  It was mainly all on sand dunes.

    1. Hey Chris, where is Jim now? We are hanging around in Eureka hoping for some better weather for the Cape Mendocino. Has he gone through it making us look like wimps?
