We’ve had a debate about why we’ve been so grouchy the last few days. Don thinks it’s the winter blues. I think I’m claustrophobic. Couple the dense forest with low, dark, clouds and I feel like I’m in a little box. Oh, wait, I AM in a little box cuz we’re travelling in the truck camper. 🙂
We got into Brookings, Oregon, by 2pm. So we had a few hours to enjoy the sunshine!
I thought about walking down to the beach but then I thought about the CLIMB to return. We don’t have this view from our campsite but we DO have a view. The beach view sites, in Harris Beach State Park, filled up by 3pm. I think the whole campground is close to full.
Don suggested we take a picture of the view from our site and set it as our desktop wallpaper. Then we’ll have a great view even when it’s foggy…or when we’re in an unscenic place…like…well, I don’t know where…if we’ve seen one of those, I’ve blocked it out.
And the sun sinks slowly behind the fog bank. How’s my timing on getting that seagull flying in front of the sun!
There’s only one drawback to Harris Beach State Park. The sawmill is noisy. I’m sure it’s good for employment in the Brookings area but it’s annoying for campers. Maybe that’s why they offer cable in the campsites…so you drown it out with the TV. I bet tenters don’t stay longer than one night. Oh well, we enjoyed the sunshine. Now it’s dark and we’re hooked up to cable.
