Notes From The Road

Hey there, 
Still slowly making our way home in our new rig, "Bullwrinkle".  The name an homage to its British Columbia manufacture, and the extra letter due to its owners both being on Medicare. 

I'm not imagining a heap of swell down there, as here in the wild PacNW it's still fairly tame.  There was a nice storm and sizable swell when we were in Tofino, west coast Vancouver Island. MEGA surf scene there.  I dubbed it Encinitas al Norte.  It was rainy, not windy, but plenty disorganized enough to discourage me from a paddle out.  Walking on the super scenic beaches was good enough. 
One spot I'd love to visit when it's on is Jordan River.  Gorgeous glassy clear day when we went through, but sadly only about one foot.  Looks like 3 distinct breaks -- a left reef, a right rocky point, with a sandbar right and left in the middle.  All within paddling distance of one another!  Beautiful setup.  

Just crossed back into CA late this PM, Crescent City, after a lovely drive down Oregon Coast.  Big windsurfing spot, Pistol River, was nukin!!!   One lonely guy was out there blazin.  Not up to that kind of sailing these days, but what an incredible beach that is.  

Love those drive-through camp slots.  This one was perfectly level, both directions.  Park n' Chock!   Hoh Rainforest, Olympic Peninsula.

The title to my next movie.  No, not Evacuation Route!   "Recreation, next left!"

A parting shot...Clearing storm, Lake Quinault.
ETA in SB, Oct 6th...
