Harold Comfort Memorial Bridge. Dave played a show in Roseburg where we ate and also went to the bank. The show went well and the venue was reminiscent of the dining room of the Titanic. The Wells Fargo had an overgrown guppy and cookies.

We are looking forward to seeing Stephanie’s cousin and her family.

The Albany, Oregon, KOA is a good one complete with a cat and a playground.

Albany itself has a beautiful downtown and an amazing Hungarian Restaurant, Novak’s.

We ate dinner there and give it a 5 out of 5 tile rating (this is our first rating of anything, eventually we expand to 7 tiles and Novak’s is a 7).

It was amazing. We met Dave and Jan who just moved to town and we shared our bread with them.
