Colleen Erin Brandy – Sunriver Aug.1977, posted Sat. May 17, 2014

That is almost 6 year old Erin squished between Colleen and Brandy (as he was then known by)
on a bicycle built for 2 when we were at the Sunriver Resort in August of 1977. Husband Brandon
and I would play golf at 7:30 am and arrive back at our condo when the kids were waking up.
Then in the afternoons they would go for a bicycle ride.

I tried to look for the sign to the lodge, because I wanted to take another photo 37 years later,
but couldn’t find it.

At dinner Thursday night Erin said that she had had a good afternoon. After going to the shop
in the lodge, she had gone exploring. She had taken the bicycle tunnel which goes under the
main drive to the lodge, and had fallen, wheelchair and all, twice because she was going too
fast at the bottom of the tunnel. But, she was very proud of the fact that she had popped back
up all by herself both times. No one else was around. All she got was a couple of knicks on
her fingers.

We only had the handicapped room for 4 nights and were supposed to move to another room
for 2 nights. But, Clark thought that as long as we had to pack up, we might as well head home.
2 sessions of bridge for 3 days was enough for him. He prefers to have me play with my
sister Patricia while he enjoys the atmosphere of a tournament and to only play every other day
or so.

But, we did get back to Sacramento at 6 pm yesterday in time to play in the monthly barometer
game at 7 pm!

Last night Erin thanked us for the trip, and said she would like to have stayed longer! She had
been blue the first couple of days, but then began to enjoy it.

    Barbara, We think it was in 1985. Lloyd was documenting a rubber asphalt job on highway 97 (?) and we were staying at Sun River. On a day off we rented a tandem bike. We remember the tunnel you refer to. It was narrow. We slowed down to avoid hitting the side and lost control. Nancy got scrapped up pretty badly as a result of our fall. Luckly Erin was more fortunate. Love Lloyd and Nancy Coyne

    Love the picture. Glad you all had a good time at Sunriver. A change of place can work wonders.

    Lloyd that is pretty amazing that you also fell in the bicycle tunnel at Sunriver. Think they need a warning sign to slow down. I wasn’t aware of the tunnel until Erin pointed it out on our way home, so I didn’t get a very good look at it. You are correct it is Hwy 97 that starts in Weed and goes by Sunriver.
