Today we were back to a dreary, cool, rainy day – just what they had forecast!

This afternoon we had a short break in the rain and the sun came out so we decided to take a run into the post office and then go and take a look at the ocean. Did I say a short break, by the time I got ready to go (about 5 minutes) it was raining again! But off we went and mailed our mail then headed for Battle Rock Park. The waves there were okay, but nothing terrific which surprised us as the wind was howling. So then we went to Paradise Point and again no large waves there so we decided it was a mix of the wind direction and waves that were working against each other. We drove out towards Humbug Mountain but again the sea was much calmer than expected. I didn’t take any pictures as there was nothing worth getting wet to take.

We came home and John checked the internet and saw that they had tried to deliver my new camera this afternoon so he made a quick run to the post office and picked it up – now all I have to do is figure out how to use it!! I am looking forward to, hopefully, taking better pictures.

Dinner is over and I am looking forward to a quiet evening of reading. At the moment the rain has stopped, hopefully tomorrow will be a nicer day.

Oh yes, a piece of trivia – New Year’s Eve will be a blue moon – only the second one since some time in the 1970’s - (a blue moon is when there are two full moons in one month) so now you can look for the blue moon on New Year’s Eve.

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