Port Orford parking lot
I’m parked at the Port Orford Harbor parking lot out near the end of it. With bad weather today, no boats are out and the place is pretty dead as I’m the only one out here.
Yesterday afternoon it was raining off and on so I did some driving around to check things out.
Looking for a trail
Later I decided to have a look for trails down to the ocean south where I was camping. I could see a lot of rocky coast line from the highway and it was only about a quarter mile hike down to the ocean if I could find a trail.
I stopped in several places where there where pull off parking places and had a look.
I like the looks of this spot
Just up from there at the next parking spot which just so happens is right across from my camping road, I stopped and looked down to this and thought I need to hike down there, maybe tomorrow as it was too late in the day now to do it.
Staying dry and toasty
I drove up to my camp spot and had a good night with quite a bit of rain coming down, but I was dry and toasty.
This morning I was woke by some heavy equipment working near by, their backup beepers are really load, but at least it was down and across the highway a bit from me so I ignored it as much as possible and stayed in bed.
My own little pond
Started out to do a hike
You just never know where you might find elk
The rocks sure looked good for fishing
The cold got me
And there seems to be a sorta point in front of that big rock and there is also a cold wind coming off the ocean and the rain showers are still coming down off and on. By this time the cold had already penetrated me, so I decided this would be a good hike when the weather was a bit better.
So I canceled that and drove up to Port Orford and checked the internet for weather which doesn’t look very good. It was showing mostly showers for the next week, but now it’s showing mostly rain and wind.
I’m headed back up to the library now to post this blog and then I’ll head back to my camp spot for the night. The wind has been picking up while I’ve been sitting here and it’s making me nervous with the ocean foaming right next to me.
That’s my day.
