The weather forecast looked promising early in the week and so we made reservations again…and again we watched the chance of rain progress as the week went on. The forecast went from 10% chance of rain on Saturday to 100%….and in a way that only an Oregonian can appreciate….RAIN and blow it did!
We did manage to get clearing both nights long enough to have a campfire, so all was not lost. And truth-be-told, the rain gave me the time I needed to work on my classroom report cards. Using our phones as a wi-fi hotspot has really come in handy on our last two rainy adventures!
Our first night was nice. The park was quiet, the skies were somewhat clear and the moon was full. Saturday was wet, windy and to top it off, when we got back from town, we were SURROUNDED by Boy Scouts. Don’t get me wrong…I like kids…I’m a fourth grade teacher 🙂 But, being surrounded on all sides by kids with recorders, skateboards and footballs, gets a little noisy. I’m pretty sure that our water spigot became base for an active game of hide and seek. State Park camping is almost finished for us. In about a month, the federal campgrounds open, and I can hardly wait! Electricity (and crowds) are highly overrated!
Rain or shine…very grateful we’re able to do this!!
