|The rainy, windy Oregon coast|
Garrett, Steve and Kristi have reached Port Orford, Oregon. Now we're taking a quick library and lunch break to dry off and warm up.
On the way into town, we noticed a sign that said:
"Caution: High winds for the next 20 miles,
when lights flash".

Yesterday was characterized by stunning views of the Oregon coastline, including huge rocks, sand beaches and waves. It was clear and warm all morning.

Last night we were invited in for a family dinner with a group of local folks. We later found out that they were Community Shared Agriculture Farmers, greens growers and sheep farmers. We had a great time chatting, eating, Garrett played the piano and we left with a gift of frozen blueberries :)
For those who have not yet heard, a few days back we made a last minute stop at a place called Mountain Homestead and stayed there for three days. We learned about a huge amount during our time there, including cob building, composting toilets, edible forest gardens, micro hydro projects and more.We've included some pictures of "Mountain Home" as part of this blog and can't wait to upload more to facebook and our website. You'll see a more detailed summary of what we learned at Mountain Homestead up on the website soon.
Hoping for sunnier skies,
