A Warm Sunday Day in Eureka


Picture wouldn't load...later...Battle Rock, port Orford. Captain Tichenor came here to settle this place under the Oregon Donation Land act, which allowed white settlers to file claims on Indian land in Western Oregon, although no Indian nation had signed a single treaty. There was a deadly conflict between the two cultures, and for two weeks nine men were besieged on this island. They escaped under darkness and returned to establish a settlement that is now called Port Orford. sigh...

I don’t know if I’m going to get to post this tomorrow.... I resisted, one more time, the ‘pay for WiFi’ lure in hopes of getting it free tomorrow morning... I checked the free wifi site and looked at some names in Eureka, but didn’t write anything down... of course. If I can’t post tomorrow morning, I KNOW I won’t be able to tomorrow night, as I know the city I’m going to be in does not have it. It probably DOES have cell phone, tho....

I drove into California today, stopping at several favorite places and seeing several favorite scenes. I should be home sometime on Wednesday, all things considered. I’m tireder than i should be at this junction, but that does happen when I ‘m heading home. It’s a combination of yearning and sorrow... interesting conundrum.

So... either you will see this tomorrow, or you will catch up when I get home!

Up to you and the WiFi gods... (I used only to sacrifice to the parking gods, but have opened up a new WiFi section).

me!

Oh look! a Ferndale!

Yippee!! I got my beautiful Oregon postcard with the lighthouse on it! I love lighthouses. I just feel so special when I get my very own postcard. Thanks! And be careful driving home.
