So if you look at this map: here you can see Pacific City and we hiked from the entrance to Bob Straub south to where the bay meets the Ocean. And back again. The wind was blowing really hard from the south, which made the trek down a bit tough but the back easy as pie. After that, we went drove up to our property, fondly known as the blackberry patch, which is on a hill overlooking PC and the ocean. It's still there, good to know.
The 'name the sheep' contest continues, and Rachel suggested the names Stella or Stanley. I wanted to share a picture of our Stella. We've had her for what, seven years? She was abandoned in a ditch when she was two weeks old with serious head trauma. Our vet at the time chose not to euthanize her, and we chose to bring her home. At about 2 she started suffering seizures, and she's been on phenobarbital for about 4 years, and hasn't had a seizure now for a year. She's a bit of different cat, but aren't they all.
So keep the names coming!
