Tuesday July 24, 2018 Port Orford Oregon
Hanging out in the Port Orford area
I made it to Port Orford Oregon a couple days ago and have mostly been taking it easy resting up. It’s been windy most days so I haven’t had the urge to put my kayak in the water.
Port Orford Harbor
I’ve been down to the Port Orford harbor looking around a couple times.
I walked around the harbor. It’s a working harbor. There are two fish buyers here to get the fish off the boats and ready for the big trucks that come by to take the fish to market or to a fish processing plant somewhere else.
Maybe a poke poling spot
Elk River RV Resort
That last batch of peanut brittle I made got a little burned as I got it a bit too hot, but it was edible.
So I wanted to try it again being careful not to overheat the sugar and I decided not to use the peanuts so it’s really a butter brittle. I don’t have a candy thermometer so I have to do it by eye. And I don’t have a recipe either so it’s mostly trail and error.
The thing that makes it bubbly is the baking soda. I put it in last which causes it to bubble up. I didn’t quite put enough soda in this batch but it turned out ok and tasted great. It’s much better when it doesn’t get burned and I ate about half of it during the day.
Tires are ordered
Steve works at a tire and mechanic shop so we worked a deal and the tires for the van are ordered. Part of the deal is I have to buy the owner two bottles of vodka and Steve and I will do the mounting so that’s free.
Peeps doing good
I got an email the other day from Dominique my chicken keeper assistant and partner. She says the chicks are doing fine with no problems so that is good.
I should get my tires soon and will likely head on home after that at least by this weekend. One nice thing about being by the ocean is it’s cool, almost too cool so while the rest of the country is burning up it’s nice and cool around here. Port Orford is sorta a quiet type of place and not as touristy as the coastline north of here which is to my liking.
Nice day mostly lofting around.
