Having said that, the 7.32" of "moisture" that fell on Thanksgiving Day and Friday was a bit over the top, even for this part of the country. Coastal vegetation and local wild critters are thriving in all the wet stuff however, and annual rainfall totals are approaching normal.
Temperatures have been fairly warm by late Fall standards. We saw only one morning last week with frost on the pumpkin and other low temperatures have been in the upper 40's to low 50's.
The Thanksgiving meal at the RedFish Restaurant in Port Orford was outstanding...and my dear wife didn't have to cook or wash dishes. All four courses were over the top, the service was exceptional and we loved watching the raging weather from our window side table.
Beautiful clear blue skies on Sunday just called out for a flight or two with my DJI Phantom 2 Vision aerial photography platform, so I took her outside to play. I had a great time processing about 20 minutes of video into a short YouTube tour of our home RV park in Port Orford.
I still have some work to do on controlling the yaw motion of the flying machine but have made improvements with the video processing features using Adobe Premiere Pro CC. This geezer is learning more all the time...almost enough to be dangerous.
We have spent the days around the holiday just relaxing, reading, quilting, walking the two active hounds and dealing with a few rolling home maintenance items. The RV toilet I ordered online before the holiday arrived on Friday. I just replaced the old unit with the same model and the installation was simple, quick and fairly inexpensive.
Just in time for the next full moon, Saturday is forecast to be clear and dry and a good opportunity to visit the annual Christmas light display at Shore Acres State Park near Charleston, Oregon. I am planning to take my GoPro Hero 4 Silver camera along and might be able to share with you an interesting video of our excursion.
Check back with us on Sunday or Monday for the Christmas lights................
