Cloudy Blue Moonrise

Beautiful sunset tonight from Tillicum Beach Campground!

When I saw the few clouds on the eastern horizon I thought the moonrise would be a bust.  The sun turned them a light pink.

But they just made it purdier 🙂

Maybe the theory about crazy things happening on a full moon is right.  We’ve seen some crazy things today.

One camper left their dog tied to a tree when they left.  We didn’t have their phone number so all we could do is hold onto her and hope they’d return.  They “noticed” when they got to Eugene and got back to Tillicum Campground 5 hours later.  She was a sweet dog.  Several people offered to take her.

When the hosts were discussing where the dog could spend the night, if needed, I learned that there have been 2 instances where campers left their dogs tied up outside over night and got attacked by a racoon.  They also left the dog food and water out.  DUH!  Don’t leave food outside your car or RV!

There was a lady walking her 2 small dogs on the beach this evening.  She was up by the creek.  A coyote was coming down the edge of the creek and started towards her dogs.  She got them on leash quickly and a man stepped in to help chase off the coyote while she got away.  I was still watching for the moon so I didn’t notice what was going on.  I heard about this when I got back to the campground.  Poor lady was shaking!  We had reports of coyotes in the campground last year.

Even though we are right on Hwy 101, we ARE in a forest.  Please, act like you are camping.
