This gorgeous sunny Sunday was one of those days that just calls you out to play. And, we did!
Before indulging ourselves, we did take a few hours to give the moose a bath. It had been awhile, and Bullwinkle was looking pretty scuzzy. So, we teamed up to scrub the moose from top to bottom and back to front. The end result was one very happy moose. (We didn't get a picture. But, we have a feeling somebody else did!)
With our big chore behind us, we headed off for an afternoon of geocaching with Gordon and Juanita, and Doug and Sue. This was Doug and Sue's inaugural geocaching outing. And, it was a good one! We started out with a sure find: a cache that Gordon and Juanita had found earlier this month. That way, we ensured that the newbies (and we) would have encouraging early success.
Doug made quick work of that cache, then we were off to a cache by the name of "Dead Man" something, which sit high atop a large steep rock on a beach. Doug and Paul climbed the monster with ease, without regard to a brisk breeze. While the rest of us watched from solid ground, these boys made the grab. (Can you see them waving their arms up there?) Once again, the newbie made the find.
Before we knew it, we had bagged five of Port Orford's best caches. The last was snagged by da Godfadda. Then, we called it a day. We had to temper the expectations of the newbies: It's not every day you go five for five!
Back home, we relaxed a bit, fixed a yummy dinner, logged our finds and decided to make a dash for the sunset. Paradise Point is not too far from here. So, we hopped in the Jeep and within a few minutes we were watching the sun set in the Pacific off the rugged Oregon coast.
It was so gorgeous we hardly noticed the gale force wind.
