Moon ~ The Station ~ Dude ~ Bucket List ~ Dave ~ Sunset ~ Tulips In Spring

Good 43ยบ sunny morning.

A little restaurant in Rogue River, The Station, closed. The building was 100 years old. It had great sandwiches and soup and you could dine outdoors in the warm weather. The restaurant owners were renters in the building and the building owners wouldn't do any maintenance, which got so expensive, the restaurant closed, after 20 years!

On Saturday the fire department used it as a teaching aid in fighting fires and it was basically burned inside.

Then Sunday it was burned to the ground.

Still smoldering...

If I put Dude in the back of my truck and go into a business or post office or anything, he jumps to the front seat. So, I parked where he could see me taking pictures across the street and opened the back window for him. He was happy and stayed put!!!
