I volunteered to be a park host at Umqua Lighthouse state park in Oregon for March, maybe April. Just a 400 mile trip up the coast from Westport; sounds easy enough, right?!
Well, Day 1 (yesterday) I drove 5 hours thru pouring rain. Stopped over in Klamath, California just 50 south of the Oregon border.
Day 2 (today) thank my lucky stars for no rain but then I waited in a line of motorists because 1 lane was closed due to an “active mudslide” Oh yeah, that means it is still coming down the mountain onto Highway 101.
After passing into Oregon, I learned that a section of the road north of Brooking closed due to big cracks in the road. A 15 mile detour took me on an “old country backroad” of hairpin turns, washed out sections and logging trucks around every blind curve. I renamed that one “hell road.”
Now in Port Orford for the night, I am crazy relieved. Remembering my “ahh” moment when I was driving around one ”holy shhhh…ugar” curve and there was a beautiful rhodie with blooming red flowers.
I knew spirit was saying, “it will all work out.”
