Edson Creek Campground, Sixes Oregon

It’s almost the end of September. We are about 10 miles inland from the coast, and the nights are cool and the days pleasant. Sparse traffic makes for a peaceful camp, and The Chiweenie Brothers and I enjoy lots of long, leisurely walks along paved road.

I had not planned on staying so long here, although it’s a lovely campground, but an order I placed with Amazon is taking its sweet time to arrive. Part of the order has been delivered,  but the other half is napping in Salt Lake City …

You gotta  love UPS! Those dudes will deliver anywhere; right up to my campsite at Edson Creek Campground in Sixes, Oregon.

My phone doesn’t work here, but I can text. My Mobely hotspot signal comes and goes, but at least it works sometimes.  It’s all good.  The boys and I deal with what’s handed to us and make do, happily.  Most times. Ha!

Beside the walks, I read and crochet and check Amazon  a dozen times a day to see where the other half of my order is languishing. We drive into Port Orford to purchase ice and a few supplies and drive down to the harbor. The view of the bay provides a rock gorilla. What???  Can you see the profile of a gorilla’s head in this rock?

Look what I found on one of our walks.  Mr. Wooly Bear caterpillar who next spring will turn into a tiger moth.  Folklore says you can predict the weather by how much black is on the coat of the wooly bear. The more black on their coat the colder and wetter the winter will be. Looks to me like it’s almost a tossup this year.

Soon as my Amazon order arrives we will be heading south on the last leg of our Oregon Coast summer trip, then heading inland for that long awaited visit with family and friends.

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Hugs, Shawna and The Boys

  1. Good to hear you maybe in the neighborhood sometime in the future. Enjoy your visit…whenever the packages arrive. Some times it takes forever to get mine at the post office and I am not traveling….It is beautiful today here and the next week looks lovely. Have a great day!
