The last two days have been pretty quiet here in Port Orford. Yesterday I did laundry in the morning and then in the afternoon we drove to Paradise Point to watch the waves for a bit but they weren’t as good as we hoped they would be.

If you click on this picture to enlarge it you can see the Cape Blanco Lighthouse light.

We also went down by the dock and then to the park at Battle Rock and there was very little wave action there. A couple of surfers were at Battle Rock beach but all they were doing was floating around on their boards as the waves weren’t great – they would have had better luck off Paradise Point.

It was nice and sunny in the morning but by mid afternoon it had clouded over and the forecast was for rain again, and they were right. It started raining early last evening and has rained off and on ever since but at least it held off until after John had barbecued our dinner!

Last night we watched Public Enemy, not a very good movie as far as we were concerned and very confusing. On Christmas night we watched the old James Bond movie – Thunderball, it was better than Public Enemy.

Today was a lazy day, I did some cleaning and then spent most of the day reading. Tonight we went to the Crazy Norwegian for dinner, we had fish and chips and they are the best we have had since leaving Kincardine but still not as good as the Erie Belle, we did enjoy them though.

It wasn’t raining while we were out but has started again. Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit drier.

And so ends great gifts of a couple of days here on the Oregon Coast and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow.
