The view from #10......

7:54 am - Monday - November 30th - Seal Rock, OR - 50° F, 82% humidity, wind 8 mph out of the west.....heavy cloud cover today with a forecast of more rain this morning, sun later, and a high of 51° F.  Began raining last night around 1:30 am, and continued until about 30 minutes ago.  On this date in 2016 TLE and I were at the Mission Inn in Riverside to see their Christmas light display........↴

Sunday was a beautiful day in Seal Rock, OR....the sun shown all day long, the air was crisp, and the views stunning.....

The view of Seal Rock from site #10

.....I spent about an hour working with Terry to put up the park office Christmas lights, and then the final hour of my two hour shift cleaning the sites of twelve departing customers.....we were close to 100% full over the Thanksgiving weekend.

I was home a little after 12 pm.....TLE still had two more hours to go before her two hour shift began at 2 pm.  It had been a couple of weeks since I last washed the sea salt off the exterior of the Newell and trailer, so after changing clothes I set out to accomplish that task.  It takes about an hour to spray them down, then scrub the sides with an RV mop, then rinse.  A nice, sunny, albeit cold day, is the perfect time to dispose of this necessary task.  I also took time to flush both the big rear facing radiator, and the Kohler genset radiator with fresh water to rinse away any salt build up.  Living next to the ocean as we are adds a whole set of new tasks which must be performed on a regular basis to prevent corrosion.  I can see how living in this environment year after year would take a toll on one's RV, and related equipment if one were not diligent.

There was a lot of reading on my part Sunday afternoon, which continued into early evening.  The wind began to rise around 5 pm, as expected, so I shortened the flagpole to reduce the strain imposed upon it by 15 mph winds out of the south by southwest, however, it never got windy enough to take the flagpole completely down, or stow the patio awning.  No doubt the wind was the precursor of the aforementioned rain during the early 'am' hours of Monday.
