On a lazy day.

(Wasn’t going to post, but couldn’t resist the alliteration. No more today though, the picture took 2-3 minutes to upload.)

Garden

Wasn’t planning to blog anything this go-round, but discovered this across the street from last night’s campground in Roseburg, so here it is.

It’s an display garden done by OSU Extension Master Gardeners. Very well done. It’s fairly extensive, with smaller areas dedicated to different types of gardens or different gardening techniques and lots of educational signs. The following are a sample of what’s there. With a couple of plants maybe someone will ID for me. I’ll number those pictures to facilitate communication.

Loon Lake

Several years ago, back when the cats were kittens, I detoured past Loon Lake on my way to somewhere else, and discovered this very nice BLM campground and recreation area that, unfortunately for me, is closed between Labor Day and Memorial Day weekends.  The lake is very pretty, and practically begs one to get out on it for a paddle.

Annoyingly, generally after I had ridden the trike down the hill. Believe me when I say that sucker is heavy, so pushing it up the hill to home was no fun at all.

Yesterday I went for a paddle on the lower river, starting at Rocky Point.  The idea was to go from there to Old Town in Bandon, a distance of just over five miles by river.  I had done the first part of this paddle last fall , and had found it pleasant but somewhat short.  Having looked at the river, and consulting the map, and applying what I know about wind and tide around here, it seemed quite reasonable to try the second leg of the trip.

I thought there was only one camping condition I don’t have a solution for, the combination of wind and rain. But nope, there’s another: hordes and clouds of hundreds of thousands of ravenous mosquitoes, mobbing the van and clinging to it as though they know where they really want to be is it inside.
