|*Sunset Over Deception Island*|
The day before we got here, last year, it was 70 degrees and sunny... when we pulled into Cape Disappointment at the mouth of the Columbia, the rain was coming in buckets and the surf was 20 feet high...
This time around... so far... it's a lot different.
It makes making photographs a lot easier.
The only complaint a guy might could have about the coast is... ever'body else likes it too! So any place a person could sit a hooch... they've built one...
That leaves precious little for boondockers to squat on.
So... when we come here, we pretty much don't even try to find such accommodations and just suck it up and pay the freight for a camp... Which, for us, is expensive on this Pacific Coast.
We'll boondock when we move back away from the coast. Which, with our budget... that'll only be a very few days! :) Oh well... Life in the West... I could be back sellin' plumbing parts!
Instead of bein'... a genuine, published author! Livin' the highlife in a wore out 5er... gettin' drug into places like this... by a rattle trap Dodge! :)
You know... a guy told me, just yesterday... "You know what the difference 'tween Poor and Broke is?"... He tapped his head with a finger and said one word; "Mind set!" ... uh... that's two words... guess he couldn't add neither!
I'm gonna have to be one of those 'noisy' neighbors while we're here I guess. The old growth forest, we're sittin' in... is quiet and nice... but... outside of 'bout six minutes, just after one or so in the afternoon, the only sun hittin' the rig is filtered through the canopy, so there ain't much in the way of battery chargin' goin' on :)
So... I guess that generator we bought... the last time we hit the coast... is gonna get a lil' exercise.
It's a rough world I'm livin', to have such a pile of piddly complaints eh? oops... guess I've gotten a lil' close to Canada :)
|*Calm Seas on the Pacific, this year!*|
Do a lil' beach combing, a lil' kayaking in some quiet water... a lil' museum gazing... and... if I can find somebody who's left her purse unguarded :) (ya gotta watch out for western banditos!)... a ferry ride to San Juan Island? To run the Raider around it?
Let's just hope... THAT boat don't leave my precious Raider... on the bottom of Puget Sound!
