This morning I was invited to the Hecate Head B&B for breakfast with my friends.  A seven course breakfast with delightful conversation that takes 1 ½ hours to eat.  Happiness.

After saying good bye to my friends I decided to explore south of Florence with the dogs.  I headed to the south jetty area.  To my surprise it is an area owned by the National Forest Service.  I associate trees with the National Forest Service and there are few trees in the sand dunes.  Following the advice of a local, I drove to the end of the paved road and then followed a trail through the dunes to the beach.  Once again, we were the only ones on a long wonderful sandy beach.
