It's no picnic......

 7:53 am - Wednesday - January 20th - Seal Rock, OR - 34° F, 93% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north......mostly clear skies today with a forecast high of 51° F.....the rain returns tomorrow.  On this date in 2013 I found a couple of things at a yard sale in Cedar Key, FL without which I could not live.....I still have, and use that hand sledge on a regular basis 8 years later.......↴


Tuesday was the kind of day that makes you forget all the rainy weather we've had for weeks now.  It's been dry for a few days now, and our environment is also drying.  It was so nice Blake and I painted a couple more picnic tables during our two hour shift, and we may even paint a couple more tables Wednesday.

I was home around 12:15 pm with the golf cart so I could pack it full of cardboard which has been building up in the trailer over the past few weeks (Amazon/eBay orders) and haul it to the dumpster.  Once that task was complete I returned the cart to its shed, and walked back up the hill.  

Although I worked most of the time painting picnic tables in my short sleeves it was quite chilly with a breeze blowing out of the north, so I spent the afternoon inside reading and napping.  Around 3:30 pm I suggested to TLE that we have a fire around 4 pm to which she readily agreed, so I headed outside to stack some firewood in the portable firepit, and pull out a couple of camp chairs.  By 4 pm the fire was up to operating temperature and I was joined by TLE for our sunset watch.......


....the sun is setting about 5:09 pm now, and I walked down the hill to capture a picture, or two just as it was hitting the western horizon once again......

Moon rising.....

....sun setting....

.....and thus ended another day on the Oregon Coast.....thanks for stopping by!
