Rockin' around the clock........

 7:50 am - Thursday - April 22nd - Seal Rock, OR - 46° F, 87% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north......marine layer this morning, and all day according to the forecast, which also suggests a high of 53° F is in the offing.  On this date in 2018 we had just entered Oklahoma on our way east to Maine for the summer......↴


Wednesday was a busy, 'long' day for moi.  I fired up the Massey-Ferguson loader shortly before 10 am, and three hours and forty-five minutes later parked her at the back of site #2 for the night.  That is now, officially, the longest work day I've put in since we arrived back in September.  Over the course of that time I finished hauling the smaller gravel to site C to cover the larger gravel I pulled from the back of the site, to site D to finish the entrance apron, and to site #2 to cover the entire site.  When the gravel truck arrived Tuesday Terry had him dump half the small gravel in site #39.  When I had transferred as much of it as I could with the loader to other sites, I took a rake and spread what was left over about 2/3's of the site (39)....I'll need a little from the pile in the back of the park to finish it, as well as site #2, which is about 80% finished.  We are slowly, but surely freshening many of the sites, and getting them more level.  We've already received positive feedback from returning customers about how much easier it was to get level in the sites which have already received our attention....

......TLE worked a split shift Wednesday.....10 am - 12 pm, and 2-4 pm....she and I are the only ones on duty Wednesday and Thursday, so she needs to cover the afternoon shift.  At any rate, the day went quickly, and before we both knew it the afternoon was gone, and the marine layer, which never left all day, intensified, denying us another Coastal Oregon sunset.  At the same time Wednesday was another Coastal Oregon day with no rain....it seems to becoming a habit.
