Salt Creek

I know, I know, I promised to write yesterday but we just had so much to do. We got it all done too. We moved just one site over but everything had to be put away, the satellite had to be stowed and the slides had to come in. Just to move three feet away. We're all set up though for our two month stay. Got the awning out, got the slides out, got my knickknacks out so everything is all set up now.

We went into the little town of Joyce to the Post Office, which is inside the General Store which is right next to the laundromat. That part of the errands was easy but the Safeway is twenty miles away. We wanted to go to Safeway because they have a gas station that sells diesel. As I mentioned before for every $100 worth of groceries that you buy you get ten cents off per gallon. Well, we spent $200 so we got twenty cents off per gallon. That made our fuel $3.85 per gallon!! Unbelievable for diesel these days.

I cheated a little bit with this picture. I didn't take a picture yesterday so this is one I took while we were here on vacation a few years ago.

We walked around the campground on Monday. It was really emptying out. The lower loop of the campground is primitive only. That means tent camping. It was even pretty empty. The upper loop where we're staying has electric and water hookups so it's mostly RV's. I found the blackberries PennYE!!! (my friend in FL) They're not ripe yet but I'll let you know when they are.

These are the REAL huckleberries

These thimble berries are delicious

These are the tide pools looking down from on top of the cliff

Another one

This is Crescent Beach which is just down the road from us

Mama deer was watching me closely

This was why

We see these deer everyday here in the park especially now that all the campers have left. They're really not very shy at all.

Today is just going to be a stay at home kind of day. It's a good day to get a lot of cleaning done while "Ranger Rod" is out doing his campground chores. If this fog ever lifts I'll go out and get some more pictures.

Send Rod to get some drift wood for fire wood. You'll have yourself a very pretty fire.
