Here's to 10 more......

 7:50 am - Wednesday - February 3rd - Seal Rock, OR - 41° F, 87% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the southwest......partly sunny today with a forecast high of 47°.  On this date in 2013 we watch our 38th, and final sunset at Cedar Key.......↴


Wonder of wonders......the storm finally passed, the sun came out, and we worked Tuesday.....


....I reported for work at my usual time, and joined Terry and Blake at Greg's site to finish cutting up the rest of the tree that came down as a result of one of our recent storms.  While Blake cut the larger limbs into manageable pieces, Terry and I loaded them into our trailer.....



.....which I would, in turn, haul up to the burn pile to unload in a separate pile from the rest.  Terry is going to rent a wood chipper so we can mulch it.....


.....I made my third, a final trip of the day up to the burn pile around 12 pm, and was off work by 12:15 pm.  TLE worked three hours this day and was home around 1 pm.

We had planned to go out to dinner to celebrate our 10 year anniversary of full time living and traveling in our Newell Monday night at Georgie's Beachside Grill in Newport, but the only reservation they had was for 3:30 pm.....way too early, so we made a reservation for Tuesday at 5 pm.  Yelp gives them a very solid 4 stars on 953 reviews, and we would be right there, also.  Everyone we have  talked with here at SRRVC highly recommended them for a fine dining experience, and I cannot believe we waited so long to check them out.....


....we arrived around 4:55 pm, and were quickly shown to our table, which had a nice ocean view, and even though it was heavily overcast, the view was spectacular.......

Getting ready to order....I'm sporting my new Hawaiian shirt.....

You can see the Yaquina Head light in the distant background....

......Tuesday you can order any wine on the list for 50% off, so we ordered their most expensive Pinot Noir ($67/per bottle)......

A 2017 Angela Vineyards (Willamette Valley) Pino Noir

.....for our entrees I ordered their Filet Mignon with baked potato......


.....and TLE their Diablo Seafood Pasta.....both were exquisite.  We took our time sipping wine....


.....taking a bite now and then, and talking about the last ten years.  It was one of those magical evenings in a very uncrowded restaurant (Oregon dictates restaurants may only have 25% occupancy).  We clinked our glasses together wishing ourselves another 10 years living the nomadic life.  We were home by 6:30 pm with smiles upon our faces.
