The new and better site.

And, right up the hill, out the side door....the bathhouse.

It's a very nice site, as COE's always are, in my experience.

Level, and neat as a pin. And...shaded.

It is rather long and narrow, with a sharp turn to get in...however, get in, I did, tho it took a bit of maneuvering.

I didn't drive off the side, that was the most important thing.

Astoria is a nifty place, but be prepared for cool, and maybe wet, weather. Also, be sure to head down the coast at least as far as Cannon Beach to visit the haystacks.

Hey, maybe you can also squeeze in a drive by the "Goonies" house while you're in Astoria.

It is easily 10 degrees cooler at this site than anywhere in the sun..tho Lily and I have just come inside to have some lunch and enjoy a bit of AC, I had the Interstate open with the vent fan on since we got up this morning.

Lovely.

One of the best things about getting away, and out amongst nature, is the shifting of gears and change in routine.

Good for one's soul, and inner peace, to be away from television and the other mind cluttering noises of a city.

Time to think, sort out, review and renew strength and self affirming mental missives.

An especially good thing, when one has reluctantly become their own primary caregiver.

I do miss NBC news, but I can keep up on what is happening in the world with my little IPad.

Lily is enjoying her longest walk of the day early in the morning...neither she nor I are too interested in doing much in the most intense heat of the day.

After we walk, we settle outside to read and crochet, she finding a shady spot near me to lay.

Til it gets too hot.

Been to Oregon before, thanks, tho not to Fort Stevens SP in Astoria.

Cool weather sounds good, and I can handle wet.

Am really looking forward to being there and spending time with this group of (mostly) women.

Patience, Evelyn.

You must find some other travels to quell your wanderlust, as it's not time yet.

Gosh darn, Maggie! ??not time yet??? OK, guess I'll have to find a local trip! Oh yeah! Got one to Chatfield SP 7/11-15 with the granddaughter. Then, I have a repeat "procedure", 6 month checkup, you know, the one where I get to drink a pungent liquid (prep)! That'll keep me occupied! LOL?

Just under 2 months, Evelyn.

Woke up to about 65 degrees this morning, turned the AC off, and it has seemed like early fall all day.

Not as cool as that, really, but a lovely break from the recent heat and humidity.

I am still outside, having a glass of wine, Lily has had two long walks, and I am finishing ebook #4.

So very nice to have shade.


Maggie

Another cool and beautiful morning.

So nice that I felt like opening things up and doing a bit of cleaning.

Rugs up and shaken out , floor cleaned and scrubbed...a good thing.

Going to do laundry up in the am, and move on to the full service campground in town for two nights, before I can get into my next COE site on Sunday.

I am sleeping well, and feeling especially relaxed since I have been in shade.

The full sun site, coupled with high heat and humidity, was a bit brutal.

I've realized this is one of only two trips since Doug died where I don't have a destination, friends or a group I am heading for at the end of the road...it feels a bit different, and a bit more sad at times.

Widowhood is about being alone so much of the time, when you used to be part of "a matched pair", as Doug liked to say...whether you are away or at home, the level of aloneness is profound after you lose your other half.

I guess a case could be made for developing lots of interests and activities separate from your partner, but that just wasn't the way we were.

From the time he moved into an apartment "up the street" in 1987, we were two rather than one, almost all of the time, and we liked it that way.

Sigh. Life.

I have to be glad I have the ability and the means to go and do, right?

Many don't, I do know that, I just don't always feel it, first and foremost.

Have to talk myself back that direction, and I do.


Maggie
