Beach day

Mason went to Eugene for a birthday party and the rest of us went to Bandon. This is the covered bridge on Highway 42.  There was a 50% chance of rain, but we lucked out.img_2461

We saw eight seals. They followed us as we walked along the beach. And they ducked underwater when I tried to take their picture.  That’s fraudulent.

It felt weird to only have four of us today. Six if we count the dogs.

There was a seal right over Sidnee’s left shoulder.  After this we headed to the blue shack for popcorn shrimp, calamari and clams.  It was fantastic.  It’s nice to live so close to the coast.

Protection

I drove to Medford on Wednesday for a training meeting. The ABS light came on two weeks ago, and I wasn’t able to determine what was happening. The Explorer made a horrible noise on the way home, but I couldn’t see any broken parts. I limped home, then went to Tire Pros to have it checked. Rick called me later in the day and asked us to come look at the damage.  The bearings were completely missing.img_2396

 

The brake caliper was rubbing on the rotor.

The tire buffed the support arm and wore down to the tire to the steel cables.

Rick said there was no way I should have made it to Medford and back in that condition. He was convinced the wheel should have fallen off and killed me on I-5. Jaxon prayed that morning that I would be safe going to work. I had the thought to kiss DeLana in case I died. For some reason I am here to fight another day.
