Chainsaw Art on the Siletz River

Coyote Rock RV Resort

We're on the coast of Oregon, but about two miles inland on the banks of the Siletz River. The last time we were here we met two retired policemen from Tampa. They were spending their pensions collecting highly discounted Iraqi dinars. I wonder how that worked out for them?

Mrs. Phred kicks back and watches the Siletz River flow in front of her living room picture window. When you can rent a view like this for $20 a night (including cable TV, garbage collection, lawn maintenance, water, electricity and security), why buy?

I'm doing another fishing trip out of Depoe Bay in the morning.

We found a tennis court near the ocean in nearby Lincoln City.

Cruising the country road along the Siletz, we ran into this statue. The owner bought it from the winner of last year's chainsaw art festival in Reedsport. He has it chained down although it weighs 800 pounds. If you stole something like this, you couldn't put it in your front yard. 

In the afternoon, we spotted a whale feeding offshore. I's not a great picture. I have better in my archive....

  1. I just returned from a week-long trip and missed reading about your adventures. If you're anywhere near Crater Lake and haven't seen it, it's worth the side trip. Beautiful chainsaw art! ... Tex
