This was probably one of the nicest Rhody Days 3 day weekend events ever. The weather could not have been better. Friday was a scorcher by Florence standards with some areas seeing 99 degrees. Saturday cooled to the high 70's and was just perfect with old town full of people just having a great time. Sunday cooled a little more and ranged from 65 to 75 and was sunny and absolutely perfect for the 101st Rhody Days parade on Highway 101. For those that have never been to Rhody Days in Florence Oregon you missed a great time, hopefully you can make the next one. Florence has many very cool events throughout the year so I hope to see you at one coming soon. Among some of the other favorites that you may want to schedule ahead of time is the Chowder, Blues & Brews in the fall. One thing abou...

We were invited to a pre-grand opening party and got to stay in the new hotel before it's officially open to the public. They have hired an additional 250 employees which is huge for a town with a population of about 8,000. The rooms are very nice including 42" flat screen TV's that are also used as computer screens. That's right, these rooms come with a wireless keyboard mouse combo so the 42" screen is a HD TV or Computer. If you have your own laptop there is a wireless network to use. Other room amenities include very nice pillow top beds, a safe and many other comforts. Now I lived in Las Vegas for 23 years, so I know a nice casino when I see one. :) Of course this is not the Las Vegas strip, but for Florence Oregon this is real a nice addition plus the fact that they are probably t...

Shelter Cove is ideal for those people moving to Florence Oregon that are looking for a beautiful gated community with upscale homes, close to the Siuslaw River and the Ocean. Located just west of Rhododendron many of the homes are situated on the banks of the Siuslaw River looking west across the River some even have a view of the Ocean beyond the dunes on the South Jetty. Shelter Cove has the advantage of currently being the last Subdivision heading north on Rhododendron located in the Florence City limits. Why is that an advantage? In addition to all the city services, areas north of Shelter Cove like the new gated community of Fawn Ridge and many others are currently in the City of Florence's sights for annexation.Of course if the City annexes that part of Lane County the idea is to...
