 7:44 am - 1st Saturday - April 26th - Seal Rock, OR - 45° F, 93% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north......partly cloudy right now with a forecast high of 53° F.  On this date in 2016 we were having dinner with my son Tim, and his wife Laila in Fontana, CA at Mariscos del Mexican seafood ever (4.5 stars on over 400 reviews).......↴

Early on Sunday it appeared I might get called off work due to rain, but by 9 am it had stopped, and I reported for work at the usual 10 am.  We still have gravel to spread so I headed up to the barn to retrieve the Massey-Ferguson loader to do just that.  Sunday's assignment was to work on site 40 to take the crown, or hump out of the existing gravel pad, and to widen it about 6 feet......

.....I spread a row of large gravel down both sides of the existing, humped gravel pad (the darker looking gravel is the 'new' gravel)....

.....then covered the new, larger gravel pad with the small gravel to finish it, and driving back and forth over its length with the Massey-Ferguson to pack it all down...... all it took me just over 3 hours to transform this uneven, humped pad into a more useable one, which is now level, has no hump, and is 6 feet wider...I think it turned out well.  By the time I finished the sun had come out from behind the clouds.  I parked the loader in site #2 instead of taking it back to the barn.  There will be more gravel work on 1st Saturday, to be sure.

I was home about 1:15 pm, preceded by over an hour by TLE who is now working mornings again on Sundays.  After a brief snack, and a nap I headed out to the garage (trailer) to putter around, and listen to a little music.  The sun played 'peek-a-boo' all afternoon, but eventually went missing in action to be replaced by the marine layer when sunset time arrived.

Thanks for stopping by!
