Today was a cool day here on the Oregon coast with a high of about 49F (9C) and a mix of rain and sun. This morning it rained off and on and at one point the rain was mixed with sleet – what is this!!! Fortunately it didn’t last and by about noon the sun was out and the rain stopped, although the rest of the day was off and on sun.

Today John cleaned out the outside window troughs as they were full of water and dirt. While he was doing that I wrapped his Christmas presents and cleaned so that was a couple of good jobs done while he was outside.

Later this afternoon we went into the hardware and grocery stores then drove south for a bit enjoying the view on a clear day for a change.

There was a bit of a sunset that was pretty but nothing magnificent, that is yet to come I hope.

About 6:30 we got a knock on the door and when John answered it was a man delivering a beautiful flower arrangement – they are from my sister Pat and niece Serita – thank you very much, they are gorgeous.

I called Pat to thank her so by the time I got off the phone we were in for a late dinner.

It is hard to believe that we have been here in Port Orford for a week – where does the time go!! We are enjoying it here and looking forward to another few nice weeks before moving on.

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