A beautiful day in Northern California
|Coffee and Internet at Steady Eddy's, a great combination.|
Its a gorgeous day in California. We are sitting outside at Steady Eddy’s enjoying a cup of coffee and soaking in the sunshine. Last week there was little outside time as a string of 3 storms came through Northern California. We had plenty of rain and there were some mud slides on Hwy 128 but nothing too bad and though we got about 5 inches of rain we didn’t have the flooding some areas had. So the sun is back out and all is well.
Two of our work camping couples left yesterday for different jobs. This park has issues keeping their work campers because of the lack of internet and phone service. We have decided to honor our commitment and John likes the work so we will stick it out until the end of January.
Next week we are going on a little vacation to Sonoma for a couple days. I found a little Inn (Sonoma Creek Inn) just a few blocks from the Plaza that had a good rate of $200 that includes a dinning certificate for $50. That’s our Christmas present to each other. I did get a wine passport on Groupon for Sonoma County, hopefully that will pay off.

I just mailed off lots of Christmas Cards and gifts, always nice to get that done. I still have packages for my sons but I need to do some baking before they can be sent.
Just got off the phone with the ranger for Heceta Lighthouse just north of Florence, OR. We are going to spend the month of March volunteering there. We have really wanted to work in Oregon so we are excited. So another new adventure is on the way. I have had a hard time lately being away from my kids. With a new baby coming and Mitch and Emily working on buying a house, it’s hard not being there but luckily they are getting great support from Emily’s folks. Holidays are always the hardest for me. I do love this lifestyle though and opportunities like this one in Oregon make me remember why we are out here.
Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas season and the next post should have plenty of photos from our Sonoma trip.
