I should of known better
I went down to the Sixes River Month again today at the Cape Blanco State Park by the Hughes House to see about kayaking. I was going to go even in the wind, but when I got there the wind was just too strong so I parked here for an hour or so by the ramp and took it easy.
Real strong winds at the Cape Blanco Light House
I decided to drive the short distance to the Cape Blanco Light house where the wind is really known to blow.
Here I am looking out into the ocean. It’s fogged in here and the wind is really blowing. So hard one has to be careful opening a car door as the wind can rip it right off it’s hinges. It pulled my door right out of my hands, but didn’t break it as I tried to hold onto it.

From there I went back to town and stopped at the grocery store to do some shopping. I watched this one lady squeeze all the avocados several times and not even buy one. Needless to say I didn’t buy any.
I drove the short distance to the Garrison Lake where I sometimes kayak and expected it to also be windy and it was so I parked here for a couple hours napping and taking it easy. I had a cup of coffee and something to eat.
Around five I headed back to the Elk River RV Campground and that was pretty much my day.
Tomorrow we are supposed to get my new tires mounted on the van if all goes well so that’s what I should be doing.
