So, I declared today a "down" day meaning no hiking or sightseeing. We often do that on Saturdays - stay home and leave the parks to everyone else. Plus, I needed to do a little research regarding our upcoming visit to Vancouver Island, and Linda took the opportunity to do her rock project.
She laid out all the rocks she had gathered at the beaches along the Washington coast and got out her glue gun.
Tediously placing rocks, she made a sea turtle to send to her sister in Jacksonville.
She had several admirers in the campground, and a couple of other campers took pictures of her turtle.
While she had the rocks out, I took pictures of some of her favorites.
This is a good example of the "orbicular" jasper we mentioned in a prior post. You can clearly see the orbs in the rock.
None of these are polished, not by humans anyway.
These are just a few of the beautiful beach rocks we've encountered on Washington beaches. You could spend hours upon hours just inspecting all the different colors and patterns in what, from a distance, looks only like a bunch of gray rocks.
In the realm of chores on the road, Linda got out her clipper set, and cut my hair. Later, the guy two sites over came by and asked if she was a professional as he needed a haircut. She told him she'd be happy to cut his hair as long as his expectations weren't too high.
We chatted with Dan & Cindy a little while and learned they are full-timers. We also learned they were in Ocean Shores, WA about the same time we were earlier this month, and they rented boats from Steve at Ocean Shores Boat House. Steve mentioned us, and Dan said he remembered reading an article on our website. Small world moment for today.
After Linda gave him a trim, he brought us a huge bowl of homemade strawberry ice cream. You gotta love the RVing community.
At sunset, I tried a couple different locations for photos.
And thus ended another day at Salt Creek Recreation Area.
