Caribbean Cornrow 1, Margaret Godfrey, Blue River, Oregon
We were about to go for a nice long drive along HWY 101, but decided to fuel up — our stomachs I mean ;), so we drove down the hill to the Port Hole Cafe one of our favorite places to fill up on homemade clam chowder, old fashioned apple and berry pies and lots more, while enjoying the amazing oceanfront view.
We happened to mention to Mel a local artist that we were taking the drive and he asked if we had ever been to CAM. We both replied what’s CAM, and he said you must go and find out!
Established in 1950, the Coos Art Museum is the third oldest Art museum

building, the museum features multi-discipline changing exhibits and a
highly regarded permanent print collection of Contemporary Northwest
If art appreciation isn’t your thing, you can score points with your mate while enjoying The Steve Prefontaine Memorial Gallery housed on the 2nd floor which
features the famed runner’s medals and the running shoes he wore when
breaking the record for the 5000m at the University of Oregon.
The Museum hours are: Open Tues-Fri 10am – 4pm; Sat 1pm – 4pm. Closed Sun and Mon. and holidays.
