Sunday 6/21/09 was a day of lots of rain and not doing much of anything. That morning I went into Lincoln City to do more laundry, fill up the water jugs, buy a Sunday paper and return to the RV park. The rest of the day was spent on the couch reading the paper and at one point it was raining so hard & with so many dark clouds above we couldn't even get any television. I'm starting to feel like a "frontier woman" up here....no cell phone, no computer, no TV and no laundry facilities and living in a large pasture with goats outside chomping on the grass. Are you getting the picture???? Actually, it's a good thing we are leaving Tuesday morning as they are having a 3 day festival at Chinook RV park starting Wednesday, 6/24...that's a Pagan Festival. The owner was telling me about it the other day as I was up working on the computer. This is the third year they have had this festival with up to 200 people (witches?) showing up. They have a bonfire going the whole time with drumming & dancing and lots of celebrating. He said they spend $1,000 on firewood alone. OK, those of you who know Will can just imagine the scene if we were here for THAT FESTIVAL.....Thank you Jesus we are leaving.
Monday, 6/22/09 No rain and the sun is shinning and I was able to take my walk this morning. Life is good! We took a ride back into Newport to go to Wal Mart and find an optometrist to get my broken eye glasses fixed. With that done we headed home to Chinook to clean house and Will get the RV ready to move out tomorrow. Will has another big driving day ahead of him...45 miles, we are headed for Tillamook, OR...the home of Tillamook cheese. You can bet we will take the tour of the Tillmook cheese and ice cream factory. Then of course the big day will be Thursday, 6/25 when we meet daughter Nancy at Nike in Beaverton, OR. Can't wait to see both of them...Nancy & Nike. Signing off with love to family and friends.
