Osprey Point RV Resort in Lakeside, Oregon Week 2
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO ALL! Hope everyone is enjoying themselves and having a safe 4th.
Remember the blueberry pie I wrote about earlier? Well, couldn't stop thinking how good it was. So we drove back the 20 miles to Winchester Bay to get a whole blueberry pie from Kitty's Kitchen. People, you have to stop in and get pie from them when you come through here. I feel as if we are becoming like my sister, Lavern, and our friends, John and Marijean, who focus in on the good eating places as they travel.

As if that isn't bad enough, we drove back to Kitty's Kitchen two more times this week because we discovered their cherry rhubarb pie. It has walnuts on top. Each piece is 1/6 of a whole pie which is quite generous.

Then, last night the City of Lakeside, Oregon had their fireworks display right on the water by the RV park. That canal behind us had a traffic line of boats coming past us so that the boaters could watch the show from the water.

Jerry set both of our cameras up on tripods in front of our motorhome, and we had fun trying to capture the fireworks. Below are some of the pictures we took.
We really enjoyed our evening with the people in this park. Lots of people brought their own fireworks (large and expensive ones, almost like the show we had just witnessed). Some went off right over our RV and others went off all around us until 1 a.m. I said to Jerry that I thought the economy must be improving for people to be able to spend their money on fireworks as they did. Afterwards we sat out by the fire Jerry had made. Saw millions of stars in the sky and three shooting stars!
We figured out that we hadn't seen a fireworks display for five years because of the places we were at during the last four years. All in all, we had a great evening. Well, not Chanti! Had to give her homeopathic anti-anxiety drops three times during the evening, and she still had a problem with the noise.
We plan on leaving here on Wednesday, heading to La Pine, Oregon, and stopping along the way to visit with Jerry's niece, Shea (that's her first name), in Eugene, Oregon.
