Windy Winchester Bay

Winchester Bay is now a memory; a cold, windy memory.  The place is stunningly beautiful, but holy crap is it windy, foggy and cold!  When it is 54 degrees and windy, the wind chill factor is just downright chilly.  We stayed three weeks and every day was windy with 20+ mph gusts.  The wind would calm around midnight each day, but sure enough by 9 a.m. the next morning the wind would be howling.  See...our poor gnome in the picture...he can't even stay upright.

We are now located in Port Orford, Oregon at Camp Blanco RV Park.  Cute little park and very clean, but it is tight.  Port Orford is central to several activities we want to do this week before leaving the Oregon coastline on August 2.  On Wednesday, we have a 104-mile round trip jet boat ride up the Rogue River.  The rest of the week is planned with a hike at Port Orford Heads State Park, a visit to Bandon Old Town, another hike at Humbug Mountain, a  visit to Cape Blanco lighthouse, and maybe a golf day at Bandon, Oregon.  Bandon has several well-known courses.

Should be fun (and less windy!).
