Wednesday August 23, 2017 Port Orford Oregon
Smoke in the sky fog in the air
I awoke this morning under the forest’s trees. I couldn’t see the sky for all the forest fire smoke in the air.
Headed to Port Orford
At Gold Beach Oregon I turned north on highway 101 headed to Port Orford a short distance up the road.
I stopped at my favorite camping spot on the way to have a look down below the road to the ocean. I plan to hike down through this area to the ocean one of the days I’m here. I want to have a look at the rocks for possible fishing. That’s the ocean in the background fogged in.
The first thing I did in Port Orford was drive up to the library to use the internet and post yesterdays blog and do some stuff on the internet. Then I found Steve at the shop and talked with him a bit.
After that I drove down to the port which is an active fishing port.
My plan was to spend the afternoon here checking things out and doing a bit of napping too.
Boats not left in the water
Hoist me up
Boats bring in their catch
Around three or so in the afternoon boats started coming in with their catches for the day so I watched them unload.
Whale out there
Fix Steve’s 30 amp power
I drove over to where Steve was at the shop and followed him home. When we got there right away he put me to work on his electrical problem, seems he’s been without proper power for two weeks.
Turned out his 30 amp trailer hookup had been mis-wired and was causing some wires to burn up. After studying the problem and taking some measurements I solved the problem and put everything in order so now Steve is a happy camper.
I’m parked for the night outside Steve’s trailer.
I’m not sure what I’ll be doing tomorrow, but I’m thinking of putting my kayak in the water.
