First, do please pray for our children. Several are feeling rather homeless and wishing we were settled....however, we ARE enjoying our time with friends and family. It's a rather shiftless season to live through. ::snort::
While our friends in San Angelo swelter in triple digit heat....I BOUGHT A SWEATSHIRT TO WARD OFF THE CHILL. We've arrived in Crescent City. I must note that driving 55 mph on flat roads in OR is a hard pill to swallow after 75/80 mph in ID and TX. ::snort:: I digress... This is home for Mike. For those who are new blog readers...Mike's folks live within easy walking distance of Jed Smith State Park....the Redwoods...and the Smith River is LITERALLY their front yard. It's beautiful here...if a bit foggy and rainy. This is an incredibly peaceful location.
Mike and I reconnected with Mom Mary and Dad Earl. Mom Mary, Mike and I enjoyed pouring over an old photo album of Grandma Ann. The kids headed down to the beach....and Mike and Mom Mary talked about various things that we hope to accomplish while we are here. It was a lovely visit after a long trip. We will be here for 10 days.
Early a.m. starts are hard on a little girl....here Stacia sleeps with "Pink" elephant and her chick fil a cow.
Traveling with TWO vehicles (Toyota and a 15 pass van) is NEW for us...Stacia kicks back...when I told her I was going to take a photo, she waved her toes and said, "Cheese!"
With a front yard like THIS who needs TV, X box etc?
A LOT of driftwood....
I apologize, dear Aggie friends. I take no responsibility for this young man. He's now corrupted his sister and she is also making obscene signs at the camera....
The "kids" had a great time starting a fort out of driftwood and diverting all the marshy pools into one fast flowing stream to the river.
Back at the trailer, Mike and the boys set up the gazebo to provide a bit of protection for the table in the moist, damp, misty climate.
I'm so GLAD to have a few days to settle and not travel.
