On our way to Eugene to see our son and Lysse...we are excited.  We only have about 50 miles to cover today and I expect the road from Florence to Eugene to be pretty level.  Given the easy day, Jean and I are off to check out the Old Town area of Florence.  (On this trip, I have discovered Old Town across this entire great nation we live in means... shopping area.)




On our way out of Florence.... they were only Chevy's thankfully not Fords. 1953 through 1963 fronts

The roads were smooth to Eugene with little traffic . As we moved away from the coast, the morning haze cleared and revealed blue skies.   

Recent logging activities which the Eugene area is known for was evident along our path today.  I've been here before to see the process of providing lumber for housing.      
 

We stopped a few miles out of Eugene at a little eating place called "Dixie's Cafe" for a light lunch. 
We were greeted and seated by an elderly Asian matriarch...and noted her family was the staff.  I asked her where Dixie was and she pointed to the logo on the menu and said..."Only Dixie here".  She said it so seriously, I dared not laugh. 
  

Arriving in Eugene we were able to catch up with Dan and Lysse for supper.  We spent the evening with them and plan for more time together over the next couple days.
