August in Oregon: Visiting Family and Camping

Retiring Early Gives Us Time to Travel

Jon & Terry Relaxing at Cotillion Gardens RV Park Near Santa Cruz
     "Retirement Before the Age of 59" means plenty of time to do all the things we enjoy, especially traveling to Oregon from our home in Mexico to visit our children, grandchildren, and my mother and aunt. This August, we enjoyed the trip in our motorhome, up through the coastal route of California and Oregon. We camped with some of our children and grandchildren on the Rogue River, watched the solar eclipse with my mother in Salem, saw our new grandson for the first time, and enjoyed clear, sunny skies and delicious seafood in Florence. August was a good month to be in Oregon!

     We are grateful that we planned our "Retirement Before the Age of 59". We'll enjoy Oregon and our family for a bit longer before we return to our home in Mexico.
