The weather first thing Monday morning was cold, damp and breezy so I got out my winter riding clothes and then set out to do some exploration. The first trail I chose to explore was actually the paved road that goes by our host site, and then down the hill to the beach. The road descends quite abruptly and is about 1/4 mile long averaging about a 7-8% grade. Within seconds I was at the turn around, took a couple of pictures and then began the climb to the top.
Just after I arrived home TLE informed me she was going to drive into Port Orford to Ray's Food Place to pick up a few items she had forgotten when we were in Bandon Saturday, so while she headed out I took a shower, and then sat down to finish a good book I had started reading a week, or so ago.
As I read I would occasionally would look up to see the fog wafting through the trees as it rolled off the ocean to the sound of moisture from the fog dripping from the trees on to the aluminum roof of the Newell. It was a perfect afternoon for being inside reading a good book while the electric heater hummed in the background.
Just after TLE returned the skies began to clear and by late afternoon you could see the ocean and rocks just off the coast once again.
Another thing I love (and don't we all) on these kinds of cold, blustery days is the smell of pastry baking in the oven......the items TLE drove into Port Ordord to buy were needed to make cranberry scones with the fresh cranberries we had purchased in Bandon at the Cranberry Roundup. They turned out to be very tasty and I'm somewhat amazed I was able to resist eating more than 4 of them at one seating! As they sat there on the kitchen counter cooling the aroma was almost overwhelming, but some how I resisted eating all of them.
Around 5 pm Greg, the ranger, knocked on our door with a couple of packages I had ordered from Amazon......one of them was the new Winegard Carryout G2 portable satellite dish. I ordered it on Friday afternoon, and it was here all the way from Campbellsville, KY by Monday afternoon......amazing!
Thanks for stopping by!
