From gray to blue.....

 7:48 am - 2nd Saturday - April 26th - Seal Rock, OR - 41° F, 100% humidity, ,wind - zero mph out of the north....clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 55° F.  On this date in 2014 we were in Sioux Falls, SD visiting our friends Todd, and Dawn Flickma, as well as installing the 'new' rear bumper on the Newell......↴



Monday began with heavy, gray overcast but, overtime, evolved into a beautiful blue sky, sunny day with  a very nice, unexpected, sunset.  However, I get ahead of myself.  What happened in between?

As  long as there is gravel to spread , and more sites to level you know what I'll be doing for the foreseeable future.  On Monday I began to work on site #5, a long back in site which is high in back, and low on the side near the electrical pedestal (you can see the pedestal on the right in the background, across from the loader).  I spent the day hauling large gravel to raise the right side all the way out to the street......

Making my way out to the street.....

....the finished product awaiting a topping of small gravel

....while I was finishing up site #5 the gravel truck arrived with another load of small gravel, so I will have enough to finish a few more sites.  I finished up my 3+ hour shift doing the same thing for site #3.

I was home around 1:30 pm and working on other projects, namely painting the legs of our round patio tables black.  When we were in Newport the other day I picked up a couple of bottles of Black Gloss Rustoleum for just this purpose.....


....and now they are officially finished.  The rest of the afternoon flew by, and before we knew it we were witnessing another magnificent Coastal Oregon sunset.....




....in the last picture you can see all of our rope lights at once.....red, white and blue....perfect!
