Thursday March 2, 2017 Port Orford Oregon
I have a nice camp spot
We’ve got a couple days or so of rain, so I’m hanging out at my cap spot here. It’s a road rock yard just above highway 101 overlooking the Pacific ocean. This is last night as the sun was going down.
It’s raining lightly and I expect it to continue.
A couple nights ago I went over to Steve’s camp at Elk River RV Resort which is on the elk river. We’d been crabbing most of the day at Port Orford Harbor and we had some crab to eat.
I was thinking of staying here too, but it’s too close together for me and besides I don’t really need any of the hookup stuff, so I elected not to camp here, although the guy was going to give me a very fair price.
Kayaking Garrison Lake
The next day I decided to kayak Garrison Lake in Port Orford. I thought I better get a yak in before the rains came the next day.
I arrived earlier than that and was just taking it easy in my van doing some reading and finally decided I better get out there before the day was over.
It’s not a very big lake, one could paddle across it in about ten minute, but if one just paddles around the edge of it, it has a lot of inlets, so then the lake is fairly big, so that’s what I did, paddled all around it’s edges to make a big loop.
It was cool out and a bit overcast, so there wasn’t a lot of bird life out a about.
Hanging at the harbor
Hauling out the boats
I stopped and shot the bull with Tony an older guy that buys commercial fish and crab off the boats and has been doing this for a long time. He’s seventy five so has a lot of good stories to tell and likes to tell them too. :O)
Going for a ride
It’s not raining as hard as I expected it to do today at least not so far. I think I’ll take a ride to town and post this at the library and then go down to the harbor to hang out for a bit and just play lazy for the rest of the day.
I have quite a few Louie Lamoure books to keep me busy.
