Someone had come to the post office with a goat. His only explanation was "It's my son's goat. " the goat's name was Rocky.

The Ferndale Pie Shop, where we got a slice of apple-berry pie for desert after lunch.

The town of Ferndale is beautiful. There are so many cute shops, interesting buildings, and friendly people to talk to. It is definitely a place we would love to see again. After Ferndale, we headed for Jacksonville, Oregon.

Did the drive through tree in Leggett. After driving through and getting pictures and video, we headed to Ferndale. In Ferndale we met our hosts and shared dinner. Everything was made from scratch, and she even made a raisin-based cake, having found out earlier that Selma is the Raisin Capital of the World. We had very interesting conversations over dinner, we even found out they met online too and have been married for 15 years.

Tomorrow we will explore Ferndale before heading off to Jacksonville, Oregon!
