Joe is holding one of his elegant creations. He comes from a family of wood carvers. His father, aunts, and uncles are all artists and display their creations here.
No, I have not been magically transported back to Florida, but South Beach Campground, OR. (47.568103, -124.361592)
Following my 2 by 2 axiom, less than 200 miles and off the road by 2, paid off big today. I arrived at South Beach C.G. by 12:30 and scored one of the coveted sites on the low bluff over looking the Pacific. By 3 all the ocean side sites were snapped up. Great view for only $5 night with my old fart pass.
Hundreds of mostly 3 to 4 inch crabs litterer the beach. Was this the result of predators, or something else? An even more interesting question is why are they all males?
|Catching Surf Perch, yummy|
|Great walking beach. |
My new pedometer app totaled 14,578 steps.
Three gastropods hunker down, their operculums sucked in tight, waiting for high tide and salvation. Only 7.5 hours to go.
|Spectacular end to another great day on the road.|
