Left coast blessings......

 8:22 am - Friday - November 20th - Seal Rock, OR - 37° F, 93% humidity, wind 3 mph out of the east.....clear, cold, blue skies this morning with a forecast high of 54° F.  The view this morning......↴

.....on this date in 2016 we were having dinner in Rancho Cucamonga, CA with good friends Paul, Kayre and Brenda....I rode mountain bikes for years with Paul and Brenda......↴

Left to right: Moi, TLE, Kayre, Paul, and Brenda

It was immediately obvious to me upon opening the curtains Thursday morning that we would be working......there was nary a cloud in the sky, and the sun was glinting off the offshore rock formations here at Seal Rock.  Both TLE and I reported for work at 10 am.  I spent most of my two hour shift working with Blake, continuing to remove the old wire fencing in the tent area.  There were 8 steal posts still in the ground which we could not remove by hand so Greg brought the loader down from the barn to pull them out using a chain, and it worked.......

These 8 steel posts were about 3 feet into the ground, 
and impossible to pull out by hand.

.....Blake and I managed to remove the remainder of the wire fencing, along with the 8 posts with Greg's help.  Time flies by quickly here at SRRVC, and soon it was 12 pm, and time to head for the proverbial barn.  TLE preceded me home by about 10 minutes from her two hour stint in the office.  I have to say, it was nice to be outside working with my hands again, if only for two hours.

We haven't deployed the patio awning for over 10 days so with the weather guessers promise of little, or no wind for the next 5 days I spent time deploying it, as well as the window awnings to let them dry in the afternoon sun.  The strand of awning lights that hang on the patio awning had given up the ghost, so I installed a new strand, (you can never have too many patio which I had ordered from Amazon for just this purpose.

After 2 pm it gets too chilly to be outside, but I managed to extend my outdoor time until almost 3 pm before I retreated indoors for the remainder of the afternoon.  It actually rained for about an hour late afternoon, but we managed to sneak in a beautiful sunset between the clouds and the ocean........ of the blessings of living on the left coast.....thanks for stopping by!
