Beach Time

Posted on Updated on

We are at Harris Beach State Park where my son David has volunteered to work here.

We arrived January 1, 2017. The trip from Sutherlin to the coast (101) was not troublesome, but roads with snow and ice were present. Nothing our Dolphin (Miss Dory) couldn’t handle. It took us about 3 hours which is good to know so we can come visit David and Brook before they head off to another park in California.

It was really good to see the ocean. We watched this storm as we traveled south.

We came to the highest bridge in Oregon, the Thomas Creek Bridge, and they were working on it. One lane only.

The Thomas Creek Bridge is 345 feet high and 956 end to end. It is located between Gold Beach and Brookings. My view as we wait for the light to turn green:

So far it has hailed on us and rained buckets. So no beach walk yet. The sun comes out but disappears quickly. It’s lovely here though.

We are helping David get set up in his “host” space and he is organizing his trailer for living her for a few months. A new adventure in store for the kids and we are so glad to be retired and RVers to boot.

Life is good. God’s word tells us “Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.” Ps. 90:12

In other words – Life is short – get wisdom and enjoy!
