    Got some more pics for youse knucklehaids… had some trouble with the wanker who promised to board my cats, the jackhole reneged and the kittehs had to camp with me on the beach last night. I put 'em into a new boarding place today, so I can go back to my state park camping gig without having to worry about 'em. Anyway, I've looked at several properties, wish that one in Westport were still available, but the seller found a renter... Westport is a cool little town, plenty of work with hiring signs all over the place, and the fishing fleet is se-wious, they work year-round catching different critters in season. Got some forest pics from camping at Bruceport County Park, and I also have some cool shots of the beach in Grayland, just south of Westport. Other shots are just stuff I've seen in the general area. Here we go:

    My first view of the ocean after nearly two years in the White Mountains of Arizona... last photos show my current campsite, an excellent location with a beach trail right nearby, more shots of the beach to come.

    This was a grove of stunted trees next to my campsite, I wandered into these woods after smoking a bowl of "Master Yoda"---the woods are pretty trippy when you're high on chronic, LOL. There's one of my Aaaaaaarrrgghhmy floor mats from the car, I've had to clean and rearrange stuff during wet weather. Weather has been excellent for the past two days, bright blue skies and sunshine with fresh sea breezes & salt air... camping has been phenomenal, WAY MO' BETTAH now that I have a thick-@$$ air mattress on which to sleep, LOL. For a few nights there, I was sleeping on two thin foam pads, felt like I was back in the Infantry again, tossing & turning on that cold hard ground, 10-4??? But now I'm STYLIN', WOOHOO!!! Wait till you see the beach next to my campsite, photos should be coming up here pronto.

    Actually, that's the little trail to the beach... got some good beach shots up next, but this coastal area is very nice, I've been lucky with good weather too. That beer you see in the second pic is mighty tasty, all hopped up with excellent craft beer flavor.

    No surf here, but I have pics of surf in Westport, just up the road a few short miles. That last pic just shows the grass, scrub & trees as you walk back to camp. Now we go to Westport on the following day:

    IMG_4045.JPG IMG_4047.JPG IMG_4048.JPG IMG_4049.JPG IMG_4050.JPG IMG_4052.JPG

    More pics to follow... Westport is a cool little burg, I could easily live here.

    Only have a few pics left, I'll put 'em in the next and final round. That boat builder had a sign out which read "Now Hiring All Trades"---saw hiring signs everywhere, no shortage of work for such a relatively small town.

    That "Surfer Girl" goes out with no wetsuit, she's gonna die of hypothermia, LOL... but she looks good in the sign, 10-4? I'm gonna eat at one of those seafood shacks today, got my heart set on a bowl of clam chowder and some good grilled fish... pretty cool little town, huh? That's not all of it, there's more to it, I just took a few pics to give y'all an idea of how things are here on the edge of the continent. I like Westport, and the sailing will be excellent, there's heller breeze and I'll have to watch the tides and fog. More on the home search later, I'm getting hungry and I'm ready to hit the restaurant, gotta drive back to the Grayland/Westport area first, I'm using free Wi-Fi at the public library in Raymond, some 30 miles away.

    P.S. Found this pic of a mural in Aberdeen, I liked it because the flags are from white countries and the immigrants weren't illegal... or were they??? LOL.

    Oops, found some more pics in a different folder, some nice sunset shots I took at the beach yesterday, and a few pics of the library in Raymond, where I'm currently on the computer:

    IMG_4082.JPG IMG_4083.JPG IMG_4084.JPG IMG_4087.JPG IMG_4088.JPG IMG_4090.JPG IMG_3977.JPG IMG_4091.JPG IMG_4093.JPG IMG_4095.JPG

    I like that sculpture, LOL... Raymond is full of metal sculptures, they're everywhere as you drive through on US101. The library is a cool place to kick back, catch a breather, recharge all devices, etc., etc.

    HEY, SPECIAL K, MY WESTERN NY FRIEND!!! HOPE YA LIKED THE PHOTOS!!! PRETTY COOL BEACH CAMPGROUND, YEAH??? I'M STYLIN' NOW WITH THE KITTEHS IN BOARDING!!! LOL... :rolleyes:
