Every day we read the weather forecast and see we’re going to have stormy weather. But, the temperatures continue to be in the 60’s during the day, 50’s at night, and the promised rain hasn’t really materialized. Well, it has rained a little - just enough to keep us from spending much time on outside activities.
Wednesday was a little chillier and much windier, though, and I wanted to see if the ocean was stormy. We took a drive up the coast a ways, but figured out our best view would be from Road’s End, where there is a parking lot on the bluff above the beach.
If you look closely in the background, you’ll see the cliffs shrouded in fog and the high waves where there is usually a beach. The gulls were huddling together against the wind:
Yesterday we needed to go to Newport to pick up Jim’s prescription and do a little shopping for a few groceries we haven’t found here in Lincoln City. There is a Wal-Mart in Newport, and a Fred Meyer, so we stopped at both places. We also wanted to see about some raincoats that Dortha & Mark and Deb & Rod got a good deal on. Jim discussed the location of the store with Deb via Facebook and email, so we went right to the store and got ourselves some fleece lined jackets. They were on sale, $25 each if you bought two or more. So, if it does start raining, we’re ready!
After the shopping, we stopped in Depoe Bay. Dortha mentioned a winery there that has cranberry wine, and I wanted to check it out:
We decided to eat at Tidal Raves, and got a nice window table with this view:
This morning when we got up we saw this strange light in the sky:
For a few minutes, we had high hopes of actually seeing the sun, but it was not to be. The clouds won out again, and it’s been another gray day. However, it has not rained much, the wind has been calm and it’s been in the 60’s again all day. Jim did the laundry and I cut my hair , cleaned house, and walked the dogs around the rv park about 5 times.
Another busy week, but someone has to do this.
