Yesterday morning started out with lots of blue sky and Terry said it might be a good day for a walk on the beach. But within an hour the fog rolled in and the rest of the day was the dreary gray we’ve had for the last week. In fact, quite often we’d look out and see the fog swirling through the campground like smoke.
So it was a good day for working on the new issue of the paper, and that’s what I did all day and evening. By the time I knocked off about 10 p.m. to write the blog, I had 22 pages done. The next fourteen pages will be slower because I have to write some of the stories to fit the space available.
I did take a couple of welcome breaks when visitors stopped by. The first were Larry and Marlene Sazama, fellow Escapees who spend most of their summers in this area when they are not working caravans for Adventure Caravans. They invited us to join them for dinner in Ocean Shores Thursday afternoon. We chatted for a while, talking about everything from things to see and do here on the Washington coast to RV caravans.
Just as Larry and Marlene were leaving, Greg White called from southern Illinois to check in and see what I have broken since we parted company back in Gillette, Wyoming after Escapade.
A little while later Doug and Julie Livingston stopped in for a visit. We met them a few weeks ago at Pioneer RV Park in Hermiston, Oregon, and they have been parked across from us for a few days while their son and granddaughter visit from Texas.
Everybody knows that Miss Terry loves to cook, and when she does, no premixed preparations for her. Everything is from scratch! While I was writing she made a delicious dinner of clam chowder and fresh yeasted biscuits that had my taste buds jumping up and down and doing cartwheels.
Meanwhile, Bruce Miles sent a couple more chapters of Big Lake Lynching’s audiobook to review. I think he only has six or seven more to go. I guess I’d better get in contact with my author friend Dale Roberts and ask him to work up a cover formatted for the Audible.com website.
I wish I had something more exciting to promise you, but today will be more of the same – working on the new issue. I do have a couple of ideas for a blog post for tomorrow that you might find interesting.
