On the town.....

 6:54 am - Saturday - October 24th - Bandon, OR - 53༠ F, 93% humidity, wind 4 mph out of the north.......overcast today with a forecast high of 57⁰ F.  On this date in 2016 TLE and I were watching the sun set over Lake Tahoe......↴


We slept in until close to 7:30 am at the Bandon Marina Inn awakening to mostly clear, very cold skies.  Once I had finished posting my latest missive we walked down to Bandon Coffee for bagels and Americanos.....this coffee house is about 50 yards from our lodging.....





Waiting for our order....

.....while I waited for our order TLE snagged an afresco table....while it was chilly, it was very sunny......no umbrellas for us this day......


.....there is a lot of funky artwork in the lot next to the coffee house.......



.....after our leisurely breakfast we walked over to the local Verizon store to check on buying TLE and new Mini iPad....her current one is about 6, or 7 years old now and it needs to be updated.  Unfortuntely, they would have to order the new one, and it would not be here for 3 days.....the nearest store with one in stock in in Las Vegas....lol....so we'll have to either order it online, or have one ordered from the Verizon store in Newport.

On our way back to Old Town we ran into some more funky lawn art.....kind of like the stuff we saw in Borrego Springs back in February.......







.....we browsed through a couple of junk shops, but didn't find anything without which we could not live.  By the time we returned to our room it had warmed up considerably, so we sat out on the deck reading in the sun for a couple of hours.

Around 11:30 am we took another walk eventually ending up at the loca Farmers' Market where TLE found another bottle of the cranberry syrup we love....hope it doesn't have to last another 5 years.....


......by this time it was well after 12 pm, and time for some Tony's Crab Shack fish tacos (for moi), and a crab cake sandwich for TLE.....I chased my amazing fish tacos with an Alaskan Amber Ale.....just as I always have when visiting Tony's.  Their fish tacos are still the best I have ever eaten......


Those amazing, magical, world famous fish tacos!



.....after lunch we continued our meanderings around old town.  I found a new sweatshirt, and a rain jacket, which I really need.  The only water proof jackets I own are winter jackets, and are way to warm for this time of year when I am working.  This one is very light weight, and I think will work much better until it really gets cold in Seal Rock....

Yes we are!!!


.....we were home around 2 pm and spent quite a while sitting outside on our deck reading, but around 3:30 pm walked over to Facerock Creamery to buy some ice cream.  Igot a cup of their Bordeaux Cherry, and TLE a cup of their Coffee....we have eaten gallons of their ice cream over the years, and next to Wilcoxsons
's it is the best we have ever had.....


......after a quick stop at the local Ray's Supermarket  we were home around 5 pm.  What a great day of revisiting some of our favorite Bandon locations!
