8:00 AM ... we wake up to the sound of rain on the roof.
Without a clock near by to tell us the time. . .
we relax until the need for coffee causes one of us to rise.
As I fill the pot with water and fresh ground coffee I spot and clock and announce it is definitely time to get up.
The last time we both slept until 8 was so long ago . . .neither of us remember.
After a breakfast of farm fresh eggs and Pauline's Whole Wheat toast we shower and head to Warrenton where we can shop without dodging rain drops.
After a lunch of a hot dog at the brand spanking new Costco and a few new trinkets for our trailer. .
we're back on the road for the half hour drive back to LaConnor.
The ride is uneventful . . .as I hold the money order in plain view as a bit of a poor driving deterrent.
The showers had gone. .
and the clouds had parted enough for the sun to peek through for our afternoon stroll through town.
After a dinner of grilled chicken and fresh asparagus. .
we head down to the beach for the 7:58 sunset.
Last year at Cannon Beach...
the sun set but not within our view.
This year . . .
with just one sunset . .
I feel satisfied.
