Unusual.......

 7:56 am - Tuesday - October 27th - Seal Rock, OR - 37° F, 81% humidity, wind 9 mph out of the east......clear, cold, blue skies today with a forecast high of 57° F.  On this date in 2017 we were boondocking at Lone Rock Beach on the shores of Lake Powell getting ready to enjoy our evening fire.....↴


It doesn't begin to get light here at Seal Rock until about 7:15 am right now.  I remember long stretches of time during our summer travels this year when it was already getting light around 5 am.  I've been going to bed around 10 pm each night, but not getting out of bed until close to 7:30 am.  During my workaday life (seems so long ago now) I got up before dawn a lot, and I really grew to dislike it.  I am thankful we are working at a place like Seal Rock this winter where we don't go to work until 10 am, and where we can let the daylight awaken us....no need to be awake before dawn.

I spent my entire two hour shift Monday with Terry trimming more hedges.  Over the course of the 6 weeks we have been at SRRVC we have trimmed a lot of hedges, and we are almost done.  They will not grow as quickly during the cold winter months, so they will not need attention again for a few months.......

Taking a break in the cart between hedges

......TLE's start time, once again, was 2 pm, so we spent a couple of hours together before she trundled down the hill to the office.  Once she left for work I went out to the 'garage' (trailer) to put some things away, which have been piling up on my workbench.  I think I'm going to have to go through the wall cabinet again to thin out some more stuff that I am not using.  Every time I go in there I find things I forgot I had....things I do not think I will ever use.

The daytime high for Monday was just 54° F, and it was a little breezy, so I did not spent a lot of time outside.  I did, however, spend more time reading....I'm up to book 15 of the 'Preacher' series by William J. Johnstone.  TLE was home a tad after 4 pm, and within a couple of hours we were watching another amazing sunset.......





.....according to Terry and Michele (our managers) we are enjoying unusually delightful weather this October.  Being able to enjoy so many clear sky sunsets in succession is pretty rare this time of year.  We will cherish every single one we get as we know the weather will turn soon.
