Daughter Lisa and her three boys, William, Luke and Jake came to spend the Veterans Day Holiday with us in Elkton. Lisa needed to study, grandma need to cook, so grandpa volunteered to take the boys on an outing. Buster got to go because he is a boy and we all piled into the van. We stopped first at the Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area to use the spotting scope to look at the elk, then on to Reedsport where we hit the Umpqua Discovery Center. That was a quick run through where all routes seem to end in the gift shop. However, the outside area shown here was good to run off some energy. Over lunch at Subway I posed the question; would they like to go bird watching next, or go to a playground. In retrospect a silly question on my part, our next stop was a playground.
