After a couple of hiccoughs with the washing machine I finally managed to get 2 loads washed and dried. Didn't think I would ever look forward so much to doing washing! A drive down to the old wharf area this morning, quite quaint, lots of galleries selling local wok - nice but expensive. More seal!!! Lunch back at Schooners Landing, a plain old toasted cheese sandwich - nice. Downtown again to check out the wifi facilities at the library- good. Then off to Nye Beach. This ...

Too early to check in so took at drive to Walmart and Fred Myer ...

I think this trip actually rewards you for sleeping in till noon, unfortunately we had an early start so fog it was for the first part of the day (and most of the days before and after this) Just when my ...
... Lance and Roxie running downhill kicking sand up behind them. Before heading out we talked with a few rangers and they said the dunes were loaded with different plants and animals. Sure enough, we saw a banana slug and a coyote pup on the trails. The coyote pup was tucked into some plants on the side of the trail and neither of us noticed it until we were about 5 feet from it - Roxie didn't even notice it. "What the hell is that?!" Lance ...
