O’Brien, OR

We are at a park in O’Brien, OR. It is on highway 199 about 40 miles from Grants Pass, OR and about the same distance from Crescent City, CA. We arrived here Friday, September 7th. We will be here a week.
The original plan was to explore Jedediah Smith state park (I have fond memories from my childhood) and various other places in the basic area like The Trees of Mystery. Unfortunately Glen came down with a cold just before we left Salem and all of us have been having horrible allergy issues. So we’ve rested, ran shopping errands into Crescent City and such.
We are concerned about Ginger. She is between 14 and 16 which is sort of old for a dog. She has been having some breathing issues, not eating well, energy level is down and shows obvious signs of pain in her hips. If she doesn’t eat in the evening we can count on her being sick in the morning. Her sight is not good, her hearing isn’t either and now I’m wondering about her sense of smell. Yesterday we went for a walk. She took no notice when we crossed a rabbit trail. She did however get really excited and wanted to play in the river! She loves relatively calm water; no or few waves.
Please pray for her and us! Hmmm maybe she is allergic to pine too!

  1. Hey Becky, Your cousin Lois-Elaine is nearby in Coos Bay OR. You might want to give her a call 541-267-3106. I’m sure she would love to hear from you.
