7:40 am - Thursday - August 12th - Seal Rock, OR - 55° F, 94% humidity, wind - CALM.....clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 66° F. The sun rose at 6:14 am today, and will set at 8:26 pm tonight. On this date in 2020 TLE and I were visiting Leavenworth, WA, a Bavarian themed touristy town, having lunch at Icicle Brewing Company at our force field protected table....we had to wear masks to walk 8 feet to our alfresco table where we could then legally remove them to eat and drink 'risk' free......↴

Two setting suns?
For the second day in a row we awoke to sun on Seal Rock. Any morning we awake to sun on anything is a special morning. The forecast high was for 69° F, and little, or no wind, and that is what we received.
Wednesdays I work a 3 hour shift. I began my workday filling in the ditch I created the other day, which was now filled with ABS conduit. It took just about 30 minutes to complete that task. Next up I finished painting the two tables I left slightly unfinished the other day, which took about an hour. Next up I did my site check rounds in about 30 minutes....we only had 5 'ins' and 5 'outs'.......
All smooth again
....my last task of my three hour shift was to revisit the large drainage ditch at the entrance to the park....the last time I did this job was July 1st, so it has been about 5 weeks. The grass has pretty much stopped growing, but there is a patch of it comprising about 1/3 of the entire drainage ditch which had grown quite a bit. All that being said I had the entire ditch mowed and trimmed in about 60 minutes.....about half the time it has taken me in the past.....
All neatly trimmed again....is the last time I'll do this job?
.....I was home a tad after 1 pm relaxing whilst TLE was at work finishing the second half of her Thursday split shift.
The afternoon was delightful, and there was the hint of a possible sunset picture. The sun is setting before 8:30 pm now, and by 8:27 pm the sun had kissed the ocean once again.....
Notice the strange effect I got on this picture....it appears
there are two setting suns
