Fire over the ocean......

 7:31 am - Wednesday - June 9th - Seal Rock, OR - 46° F, 93% humidity, wind 5 mph out of the east......mostly clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 58° F. 

I began Tuesday with some expectation of spreading some more gravel after completing the bi-weekly WDS filter cleaning, but was diverted almost immediately by a problem with the cable TV in site #20.  Terry and I picked up the small TV we use to plug into the cable to see if it is our problem, or the customer's problem, as well as the tool box holding the various replacement fittings if it is our problem.  I was able to diagnose the problem pretty quickly, which was corrosion in the male fitting which screws into the connector which customers then screw their cable into on the other side.  The cable in the park is getting old, and it took me a while to get the cable stripped and ready for the new male fitting, but I was victorious in the end and TV reception was restored.

From there I picked up the trailer, mower, Stihl trimmer, and blower to quickly mow and trim a couple of sites (7 & 21).  Next up Terry asked me to glue down the one piece of indoor/outdoor carpet I had fitted for the women's restroom entry.  By the time I finished with that it was after 1 pm, and time for me to call it a day.  I never got up the hill to get the Massey-Ferguson.

TLE had the 12 pm to 4 pm shift Tuesday, so I spent some more time in the trailer working on this and that, as well as deploying a new string of rope lights around the 'lido deck' to replace the original red rope lights we've had since we arrived.  The salt air finally did them in after 9 months.

After TLE's arrival home we headed out for another walk up NW Cross Street to Seal Rock, down through the park to the beach path, and out on the sand of Seal Rock Beach...... wasn't nearly as windy as Sunday.  We were home a little after 4:30 pm.  Little did we know we were to be treated to a spectacular Coastal Oregon sunset.  It went on for about 40 minutes........

.....these sunsets are one of the things we love most about Coastal Oregon.  We first experienced these sunsets back in Fall of 2014, and 2015 when we were lighthouse hosts at Cape Blanco.
