Holiday Lights Shore Acres State Park, Oregon

This is well worth the trip to see this display of lights. There are over 300,000 lights, it takes many volunteers almost a month to set up these displays. There is over 49,000 visitors each year from many states and from several countries.
 We went 2 nights in a row just to see it all. we highly recommend a trip over to see them. they are down by Coos Bay, south to Charleston and then about 3 miles from there. There is

a State Park near there, Sunset Beach that is nice to stay at if you RV. they have full hookups. several motels nearby and a couple of private campgrounds also.

Sister Oregon Quilt show 3

The next 2 quilts are from our neighbor, Delores, She does a great job on quilts.

 The following quilts tell the story of Alice In Wonderland, some great quilts there.

This Quilt was all done by hand it was sold for $1,000. we saw one other quilt listed at $1,095. Most of the quilts were in the $300 to $600 range. A lot of work for that kind of money, I think it might equal out to .50 an hour if you are lucky!!
