A little work, and a little ride......

 7:37 am - Tuesday - October 6th - Seal Rock, OR - 50° F, 94% humidity, wind - CALM.....clear, and cool today with a forecast high of 66° F.  On this date in 2018 we had just arrived at Liberty RV Park in Jersey City, NJ to visit NYC for the first time.......↴


.....and there she is (NYC) right across the Hudson River.......↴


We thought it was going to be foggy Monday, but we got the opposite.....clear, blue skies.....

.....TLE bought an 8 pack of these neck gators, which double as face masks.  I chose black for my working mask.  Easier to breath through, and your glasses don't fog.....


....I spent my 2 hour shift cleaning the restrooms and sites.....there is one women's and one men's with a single shower, and a couple of toilets each.  They are not currently in use as they would only be used by the tenters, but since they are not allowing tenting right now they are closed.  Nonetheless, they still get dusty, etc. so we clean them....this is the first time in 3 weeks.  After my shift was over I did a little tuneup work on my Cannondale Bad Boy and make the round trip ride into Waldport and back.  There was a slight tail wind out of the north so I covered the distance to Waldport in record time......




Still a beautiful day!

....the return ride was not as fast as the wind out of the north had stiffened, and I was fighting it all the way.  My cyclocomputer statistics bear witness to that fact.......


.....at the turnaround I was averaging 16.1 mph, but my overall average after arriving back at SRRVC was down to 13.3 mph, and it did take me 45 minutes and 27 seconds of riding time.  I did, however, burn 665 caloric units.

TLE worked in the office from 10 am to 12 noon, and then 2 pm to 5 pm, so she got in 5 hours in one day.....that's 30 minutes more than I've worked in two days.....lol.  We continue to enjoy our time here on the rural Oregon Coast.  Nothing like the smell of salt air, the continual sounds of the ocean as the tides rise and fall, and the fog rolling in, and then out again.  One never gets tired of the view whether it is sunny, foggy, or rainy....it is just spectacular!
