The marine layer.....

 7:42 am - Tuesday - June 29th - Seal Rock, OR - 55° F, 94% humidity, wind 3 mph out of the south by southeast.....overcast this morning with a forecast high today of 65° F.  On this date in 2013 TLE and I were in Sheridan, WY sharing a potluck with good Newell friends Tom, Darlene, Forest, and Cindy on our way to Alberta, Canada......↴

I've written about the indoor/outdoor carpeting we have been installing around the park.  We began the process of removing the old indoor/outdoor carpeting about 5 months ago before it began to rain.  There was a gap of 4 months before we began to install the new carpeting for lack of dry enough weather to complete the process of applying the mastic to the concrete, installing the new carpet, and having enough warm/dry weather to allow it to cure.  On Monday we (Fred and I) finally installed the final pieces of carpeting in front of the restrooms in the tent area......

....I expected it to take us an hour, and true to form it took us almost 3 hours beginning to end to first 'dry fit' each of the two pieces, make a few cuts around the conduit pipes which you can see in the center of the picture above, and then permanently install the new carpeting.  

The forecast for Monday indicated heavy overcast all day long, and even some fog, but the marine layer moved offshore for about 5 hours, and we got a very nice day......

....you can see the defined line of the marine layer across the horizon in the pictures above and below.....

.....I discovered, quite by accident, that Le Tour de France began Saturday.  I was expecting it to begin in early July, so I was caught by surprise.  I only missed the first two stages, and there are now 18 to go after the 3rd stage on Monday, which I was able to record (the replay), and watch after work.  Just like last year there have been too many crashes, and Monday was no exception....I think there were at least 7 crashes Monday taking out many of the stars of the sport....not a good thing for anyone to get hurt, but like all sports you need/want the stars to be at their best.

By 2:30 pm the marine layer had moved back inland causing the temps to plummet, and then add to that a brisk wind out of the southwest and suddenly all you want to do it be inside where it is warm.  The forecast for the 4th of July weekend (this weekend) is for temps in the mid 60's moving into the low 70's by mid month....that's why all the RV parks on the coast are filled to the brim right now....all the inland folk are escaping the persistent heat that we drove into and out of last weekend.

It seems as if we just finished May, and here we are on the brink of July....time is moving fast....thanks for stopping by!
