A deer strike

We’re cutting our road trip short. We’d planned to be on the road for another 10 days or so.20160919_104029

About five miles from the Canada-United States border we hit a deer with our car. Luckily we weren’t hurt, but the car and deer weren’t so lucky. Wonderful people stopped and helped us including a conservation officer who took care of the deer. We crossed the border into the U.S. in a tow truck. The driver towed us 120 miles to the nearest town with a collision repair shop and a rental car facility.

oceanWe’re in Oregon now at the Oregon coast which is one of my favorite parts of Oregon. Having beautiful weather here and visiting with my brother and sister-in-law. It’s great to unwind a little.

We don’t have a date for the car repair (except the latter part of October) so we decided it was better to fly home and return when the repair is complete since car rental and all the other expenses add up!

After I get home and rest up I’ll post more photos of my trip.
