Sunday February 8, 2015 Port Orford Oregon
The sun was out this morning as I got up, but rain was expected later today.
All the rivers are blown out as far as the fishing goes and flowing too fast for my kind of kayaking, so we decided to take another ride today. Today, we were going up along the Sixes river, which is a river just north of Port Orford. We were going to explore the head waters of the Sixes river. We will fish and kayak the Sixes river when the water clears up and goes down a bit.
About twenty miles up the road we stopped at this spot so Steve could check out the water in the creek under the bridge. Steve picked up a lot of aluminum cans. He says he uses the money from these to pay for his fishing license.
We had a nice ride out looking around and got back to Port Orford around three PM. We were going through so heavy rain showers at this time. Steve wanted to stop and do some shopping for groceries, so we stopped. He went into the store and I checked out the Wi-Fi signal from the library that was across the street from the store. I was having some difficulty finding the signal when a guy came back to his car from the store and saw my van and started talking with me. He pointed me to the right Wi-Fi signal and we talked kayaking for a bit, then he left and I found the library’s Wi-Fi signal and connected. Great.
I was having trouble getting on where Steve was staying and I planned to move my night spot up the road from there a couple of miles, so a new internet connection spot was needed.
It’s a spot up the hill from the main highway overlooking the Pacific ocean. The spot is a road working area which I’ve used before up here, last year when I was here for a week.
With another day of rain coming in, we’ll likely do a similar thing we did today. We are thinking of going south a bit to Gold Beach, then off checking on the Rogue River.
That should be the last day of rain for a bit, so we’ll get on the rivers eventually.
Posting will likely be delayed until I get an internet connection sometime in the morning.
Nice day cruising around the forest roads.
