8:14 am - Thursday - September 14th - LPG&RVR - 52° F, humidity 43%, wind 0 mph out of the south by southeast.....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 84° F. On this date in 2020 we were overnighting on the Columbia River on the Washington....we would cross the 4 miler long Astoria-Megler Bridge into Oregon the next morning on our final leg to Seal Rocks RV Cove where we spent 12 months.....↴
I got dressed for work Wednesday morning not expecting to be working on the driving range clearing golf balls from its surface so it could be mowed, so I wore shorts and a t-shirt. If I had known in advance I was going to be clearing golf balls on the driving range I would have worn long pants, and a long sleeved shirt to minimize mosquito interaction. In fact, I got dressed Wednesday morning thinking it would be a pretty easy day as based on the tee time sheet we would only need 8 carts for the day. Expectations can be tricky things....sometimes you get the exact opposite of what you expect.
Within 10 minutes of arriving at the Clubhouse to stage 8 carts I saw DeWayne walking toward me. He wanted to let me know that he would be mowing the driving range later in the day, not on Thursday as we had discussed a couple of days prior, and then TLE advised she would need more than 8 carts....well, there goes my easy day....lol.
In all we ended up renting 14 carts, and all but one was back by 5 pm. I don't try to clear the driving range until after 10 am as the grass is too wet, so I headed out to do my initial round of the golf course.....
.....the sun is hitting those mountains a little after 7 pm now, and as soon as it hits the mountains you can feel the air temperature drop significantly. Within a few minutes we had retreated to the warm, friendly confines of the Newell for another evening. Now to enjoy our four day 'weekend'!
Thanks for stopping by!
