This got us thinking...should we be looking for a place to live - and empty out the storage unit?
Should we consider buying again...and settling down again?
We started looking around in Bend...but the prices have gone up since leaving here 2 years ago! Our own house had recently sold again (yes our buyer got married and moved away) and so our house had increased in value $50,000 in just 2 years.
We looked for smaller homes and to be quite frank...they were not always in the best of shape and/or needed a whole lot of work!
Nick started to look elsewhere...down in Grants Pass & Medford area which is southern Oregon. Prices were a bit less but nothing drew us!
Then we decided to look along the coast of Oregon...and again focusing on the southern coast line because of the milder weather, the closer California we were hoping would be warmer weather and less rain???
We took a few days to drive along the coastline by starting in the town of Florence and we then we came to Port Orford...there was a small house there for sale, which Nick had seen on Craigslist. We drove into a street and realized we were on a peninsula and it was surrounded by a lake and the lake was connected by a sand dune to the ocean!
As we drove on this peninsula ....we came across a little bungalow,
potential and would work out really nicely for us!
On the backside of the house...jusr a few steps and there it was right on Garrison Lake!
A kayak and yes off we go...and the lake is right by the ocean...so you can paddle to the sand dunes and go right to the beach....oh man!

Well I guess you got it figured out huh?
