This program was a perfect introduction to the beautiful Oregon coast. Our expert tour leaders created a great experience for us. We learned about sea life, weather, and life on the Oregon coast both now and in the past. The participants were friendly and interesting. The program exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to go back for more!

What an awesome experience. We had a fantastic storm, saw three beautiful and fascinating lighthouses, learned about the local wildlife and plants,had wonderful meals, and a thoroughly enjoyable group to share all of it. I will definitely be signing up for another adventure very soon. Thank you Carol and Lynn for making my first Road Scholar trip so memorable. Kathy M.

This is an outstanding program led by people who are experts in their fields and able to share their expertise with skill and humor. The varied program had much to offer about many aspects of flora, fauna, weather, lighthouses, and geology of the Oregon Coast.

This was my first Road Scholar program and I already want to sign up for more. The program, the leaders, and the participants were great. The information about geology, fisheries, meteorology, lighthouses, and marine mammals was all fascinating and extremely well-presented. I would sign up for more programs with all the presenters: Carol, Lynne, Joseph, and John. And, oh yes, the scenery and coastal area of Oregon is spectacular in both rain and sunshine.

This was the 6th Road Scholar program I've attended, and each one has been better than the last ( actually tied with my last intergenerational program at Best Friends in Utah last year.) The leaders, Lynn and Carol Unser, ably asisted by Joseph Galbreath and John Ford, were exceptional. All four of them know the area and their subjects extremely well, and their love and enthusiasm for them both shone through the whole program. The lectures were great, accomodations excellent, field trips good, and the food outstanding - especially that 7-course breakfast! This one's a winner. (But don't expect to get a suntan!)

I learned so much about the Oregon Coast, geology, and meteorology. The instructors were experts in their fields and their enthusiasm for all aspects of the program made it such a wonderful experience. We experience all sorts of Oregon weather, rainy and cool, but that just seemed to add to the experience. The ocean views from our rooms were spectacular. Highly recommend this program.

What a great experience this program was. The presenters where fantastic, the scenery phenomenal, the Adobe Resort is right on the ocean with beautiful views, comfortable beds, very clean and the food was excellent!
