You can't get much lower......

 8:16 am - Friday - October 30th - Seal Rock, OR - 52° F, 100% humidity, wind 6 mph out of the south.....overcast today with a chance (lol.....just started raining) of rain and a forecast high of 54° F.  On this date in 2015 we had just arrived at the fairgrounds in John Day, OR for a two day stay while driving US-395 south from Washington.......↴


I actually worked pretty hard during my two hour shift Thursday.  Blake and I were assigned the task of trimming a big hedge system which separates sites 23 and 24.  This hedge is about 100' long by 5' wide.  While Blake trimmed the top of the hedge down about 18" using the pole trimmer, I trimmed both sides back about 6" utilizing the handheld hedge trimmer.  Additionally, we trimmed the hedge at the rear of site 24, as well as the hedge on the opposite side from the hedge separating the two sites.  It took us just over 2 hours to trim the hedges, rake up all of the trimmings, and deliver them to the 'burn pile' (again, not burning on this day).  I was home by 12:10 pm relaxing, and awaiting TLE's arrival home at 1 pm.

We needed to make a Ray's Food Place run into Waldport, so around 2 pm we made the quick 8 minute drive into town, and were back home within 40 minutes.  We really like the Ray's supermarkets that dot the Oregon coast....we even shopped at the Ray's in Bandon when we were there last weekend.

Campfires are an important part of our lifestyle, and sometimes we go too long in between fires due to wind, or rain, or it's just TOO cold.  Thursday the conditions were perfect, so we decided to have our 3rd one since arriving at SRRVC September 15th.  I lit the fire around 5 pm, and we lingered there until just before sundown......



....when we decided to walk down to the US-101 turnout right across the street from SRRVC......

Usually you cannot get within a 100 yards of Seal Rock

....we were startled to find the tide was at its lowest point, and it was so low it was possible for people to actually walk all the way out to Seal Rock....this is by and far the lowest tide we have witnessed so far......


.....the sundown wasn't too bad either.....👍👍👍




.....we returned to our campfire in about 10 minutes and remained there until well after 6:30 pm as the last of the logs burned down.  As we were walking back into our campsite I couldn't help but notice how pretty our site looks with our outdoor lights.  I think we have managed to create a pretty inviting environment here at SRRVC.....
