Hedge fund.....

 7:50 am - Thursday - July 29th - Seal Rock, OR - 48° F, 100% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north......mostly sunny today with a forecast high of 66° F. On this date in 2012 we were near Raymond, WA (on the Olympic Peninsula) having breakfast at Hamp's 101 (US-101 runs through Raymond).....↴

Wednesday began sort of like today (Thursday) with sun, and little wind, but by the time I reported for work at 10 am the wind was blowing out of the north in the 10-15 mph range, and the fog was rolling in and out.  I spent most of my 3 hour shift back in the tent site area trimming hedges, and mowing grass in preparation for the possible, future reopening of those 11 sites.  I managed to get 3 more sites trimmed plus the area around the Landscape Shed.  That was the easy the wind blowing it became more and more difficult as my shift progressed to rake up the hedge clippings and successfully deposit them in the trailer before hauling them up the hill to our 'burn pile', which is on hiatus until the Fall.  It seemed that half of every load of clippings I was carrying to the trailer would blow away in the wind.

We are well past the Summer Equinox here in late July, and it is obvious that the sun is steadily moving back towards the southern horizon.  Normally around 8 am I have to close the curtains for a little bit as the rising sun is glaring in the window....not so this is once again behind the trees to the east of our location.  Tomorrow, Friday, the sun will rise at 6 am, and set at 8:44 pm here in Seal Rock, OR.

As I wrote about a week ago  Terry (manager) had his shoulder surgery about 10 days ago.  He went back in for the 10 day check up on Tuesday and was approved to begin physical therapy, so the healing process is well under way.  He'll go through 6 weeks of PT, but the complete recovery will take between 6 and 12 months....that is a long road back!

As you know it has been difficult to get many sunset pictures lately, and I was a little slow on the uptake Wednesday night, but did manage to get some post sunset pictures for your viewing pleasure.....

....if you don't pay attention the sunset will come and go before you know it....Tuesday it kind of lingered for about 30 minutes....sweet!
