Langlois -- Coho Country

Coho salmon spawning in the watersheds above Langlois

Langlois is nourished by, and centered around Floras Creek, a little-known, but highly productive salmon and steelhead stream on the southern Oregon Coast.  Floras Creek is also the source of the City’s drinking water, with the water intake located just above Highway 101.

Take Me Home, Country Road

Guerin homesite, barn and pastures

In 1995, looking for a place to settle with pasture for livestock, we ventured up a road across from the Langlois Market:  Langlois Mountain Road.  Up and up we climbed, enjoying the views of the coastal plain, the Pacific Ocean, and pastures that would remind a Scotsman of the moors of home, with bands of sheep dotting the swaths of green.  At random intervals, gravel roads led off to dwellings, mostly out of view.

North Curry County Macintosh Users

North Curry County Macintosh Users (NCC-Mac) has been serving the needs of our local Macintosh and iOS community since 2009. Each of our monthly meetings has an announced topic, but we always allow plenty of time for questions and general discussion. Anyone is welcome. This is a freebie. We will never ask for money.

We usually meet on the last Thursday of each month, 4:30 PM at the Langlois Library. Occasionally vacation plans and holidays can interfere with our meeting date, time or location. Check our blog <ncc-mac.blogspot.com> for updates or contact Chris Schram <chrischram@gmail.com> to get on our Meeting Announcement list.

For additional content, search for "North Curry County Macintosh Users" at <plus.google.com>. (Trust me, that search is much easier than the real address, which is a mile long.)

Even if you haven't read the month's book, drop in and see  what a lively group we are. Our selection of books is very eclectic  -ranging from best sellers to the classics, fiction to non fiction.
