Wednesday of this week we took a road trip to visit with our friend Judy who is working down in Brookings. The temperatures are quite a bit cooler where she is. We worked with Judy last year at Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge. It was the highlight of my summer. I learned so much from her.
After dinner Judy took us over to the Goat Island overlook where she works as a bird interpreter. Her mornings are usually very foggy and very cool. When the fog lifts the scenery is something to behold and, with a scope, you can see lots of birds on the island.
Before leaving the area the next morning we stopped back by to see Judy one more time. It was very foggy so we weren't able to use a scope to see the birds on the island.
We visited for a little while longer then headed on down the road to Newport to see friends Janice and Dave.
Yesterday was a work day for me. I am still working on the chemical inventory and hope to have everything completed before Monday afternoon. Tuesday it audit day so it was to be finished before then. It has been a big project but I have enjoyed it.
Today we have been invited to a cookout with other refuge employees. That should be fun.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
