Florence Old Town and Bridge

Into Florence across this historic bridge, one of three 1930’s era bridges designed and built by Conde McCullough whom the historic and beautiful Coos Bay Bridge we posted about earlier. These spans all feature some distinct art deco  touches. It’s a draw bridge which is raised now to allow tall masted fishing boats and sailboats to pass through. Back in the day freighters loaded with logs  and lumber frequently passed under.

WE also spent some time strolling and exploring the waterfront and Old Town Florence. The many shops, galleries, and eateries draw large crowds, especially on weekends but we were there mid week and spared the crowd. We dined al fresco at Beachcombers where they specialize in great beer and food. I had a quite impressive Rogue Dead n’Dead Imperial IPA aged in whiskey barrels.

A very pleasant day in a town we have become quite fond of.
