Oh no, better get those fish out fast and cover the pool w/a net! Once they find the fish they will not give up.

Good luck they are persistent suckers. Battled them for years. Beautiful birds, but go away please.

Very nice! Good luck with everything and welcome to GPF! I have never been to Oregon, but I'm planning a trip to go there with my wife and 24 year old daughter around Thanksgiving.

what part of Oregon you heading too? Every time I visited Chicago it was December and cold, Oregon isn't that cold most of the time

I drove the coastline of Oregon up to Vancover Island, a driving trip after graduating from college. Might drive 3 miles might drive 50 might drive more, saw a neat place to camp, stopped! My datsun station wagon and my dog! Ended up driving for two months.

Loved the empty coastline parks, beaches. The Canadian landscape, glaciers, mountain parks etc. Finally had to head back to phoenix and start my new job.

Now living in the high density east coast. Takes us a few hours to reach the ocean, we love off season trips.

Looks like a lot of progress, it's going to look great when the plant life fills in.
