Stay home......

 7:46 am - Thursday - October 22nd - Seal Rock, OR - 37° F, 93% humidity, wind 9 mph out of the east.....clear, cold, blue skies today with a forecast high of 55° F......BRRRR! On this date in 2017 we were hiking numerous trails in Bryce Canyon......↴

Wednesday was a delightfully sunny, but cold day.  I was prepared to go to work with TLE at 2 pm, but got a text from Terry telling me I didn't have to  Since I had the day off work I decided to make a run into Newport by myself to mail a package, and a letter, as well as drop off an Amazon item for return (I ordered the wrong item!).  The local UPS location is on the north side of Newport, and is actually a transfer station with a customer service window.  The nearest UPS store is in Corvallis, which happens to be 60 miles away.  If you can find a UPS Store to return an Amazon item they will package the item for you, and send it back to cost for anything.  Since this was not a UPS Store I had to buy a small box ($1.85), and box it up myself.....they provide the label, packing material and tape.  At any rate I quickly boxed it up and was on my way back home.

At home I decided to give the Beetle a good washing, which it has not had since before we left Wittmann back in early May.  To be fair, I have wiped her down following a heavy dew numerous times during that time, but have not vacuumed her out, nor detailed her wheels.  After about an hour I had her looking good again.......

....since I had the vacuum out I decided to vacuum the floor of the trailer, which had an accumulation of detritus built up from 5 weeks of ingress and egress here at SRRVC.  By the time I finished with that it was almost time for TLE to go into the office for her two hour stint.

After eating a nice lunch TLE had prepared for me prior to leaving for work I headed back out to dump the black tank.  We've been here 5 weeks, and I think that is only the 3rd time I have dumped.  I spent the balance of the time TLE was gone reading another 'Preacher' book by William J. Johnstone......I've read 8 of the 24 book set so far.

For the 3rd time in as many nights we were treated to an interesting sunset.  There was a cloud bank on the horizon which caused the 'set' part to occur a little earlier than normal, and I also got another clearer shot of the crescent moon......

....every sunset we get this time of year is a blessing, and we endeavor to enjoy each of them.  Once again the afterglow went on for 30-40 minutes.

Thanks for stopping by!
