Ask Mongo
Hi Mongo and Minga, My name is Les and I live in the UK. I have relatives and friends in Oregon and have been to Bandon several times. It is one of my favourite places to visit when I come to Oregon and I watch Bandon TV every day so I can keep up with the news and events happening in your lovely town.
I have attached a link to a webcam at one of our surfing beaches here in the UK. It is in a little village called Portreath and it's in the County of Cornwal. The live webcam is great and provides a continuous pan across the beach. I hope you can view it and if you can you will see the 20 to 30 foot tidal range that occurs here in England.
Here is the link.
Best Regards to you both and thank you for your website that keeps me connected to the lovely Bandon By The Sea.
Les M

Mongo: Hey there Les, thank you for the great email - it's fun to watch the surfers! Keep on watching!

joke of the day
My son wanted to know what it's like to be married.
I told him to leave me alone and when he did I asked him why he was ignoring me.

Call the cops!
