Today and yesterday it was very warm in Ferndale. Saturday our old house group had a picnic in Bear River Valley, so I hung a sign on the shop door, “Closed today for lack of fog”. We were still sitting in the sun around 8:00pm when we decided we better leave in order to beat the fog that was finally rolling in. Driving over the wildcat when it’s dark and foggy is no fun.
Today I did a few chores after a lazy morning and then when it got too hot to work outside (we’re only talking in the high 70s) I took the ATV out to Centerville Beach. I was able to ride it all the way down to the mouth of the Eel River this time. It was fun seeing some of the same spots that Bruce Slocum showed us in the boat ride only this time from the land perspective. I had fun watching the harbor seals play, just as Lauren did on the boat ride. I didn’t take the camera this time, but if we get clear weather again later this week I’d like to go out there again.
