“Ever pet a snow leopard? You might get the opportunity here. They breed rare cats for zoos, so in the spring and summer they have baby cats that are young enough for up close interaction. They also have many other animals.”

“Our favorite, funky, friendly place for dinner. On Highway 101 at Jackson Street in Port Orford. Not just a "fish and chips" place. Very casual. Serves large portions of very good food at very reasonable prices. Excellent home-made desserts, pies. Order the fried onion rings (ask for "extra crispy" if you like them that way) as an appetizer. Beer and wine are inexpensive too. ”
