When I arranged to go Crabbing in Waldport OR in early August 2021 it was so near the date I couldn't find ADA accommodations any closer, so I stayed in Florence OR--which turned out to be a convenient base from which to explore both north as far as Newport and south even as far as Bandon. I had stayed in Florence on another trip, so this is an addendum to that trip:
Following are fotos of places I was able to see this trip while in Florence.

I've been in a wheelchair for 30+ years. It poses some challenges for traveling. Maybe others can benefit from my experiences.
