7:34 am - Friday - October 16th - Seal Rock, OR - 46° F, 87% humidity, wind - CALM.....clear, cool, blue skies today with a forecast high of 61° F.....a 43% chance of rain tonight. On this date in 2014 we were in the middle of our second month at Cape Blanco Lighthouse.....I took this interesting panoramic shot from the top of the lighthouse....to the left is north beach, and to the right is south beach were we spent most of our beach combing time......↴
.....and what do you do if a tsunami surge is heading your way......get to high ground. Fortuantely for us NW Cross Street is one of the evacuation routes away from the ocean, and our Newell is less than 50' from the street.....our Newell sits about 80' feet above sea level, but I am not sure that is high enough....we hope we'll never have to find out. I watched/listened to the dialog between various experts for about 45 minutes before I lost the feed, and could not get it back. While I was doing that I spent time in the tool shed finishing the organizing effort I began last week.....that brought me to 11:30 am so I spent the last 30 minutes cleaning 7 more site lights before dropping off the cart at the office and heading home.
.....every clear day here at Seal Rocks RV Cove is a blessing, and we cherish every minute of them. More weather is in the offing, so it will soon be time to batten down the hatches once again.
