Tree Clearing Day 2

All done. The yard and garden are a mess: muddy and strewn with twigs and sawdust. Here’s some indication of before and after. We’ll be adding deciduous trees to obscure the neighbor’s house a bit.

Tree Clearing Day 1

I finally got Trisha to agree to have more trees cleared from our back yard: 10 are planned to be taken down and another ten or so thinned. These are the two near to the house on the east and west sides of the yard.

A Bit of Golf

With a little break in the weather (some sun and low 50s) I spent an hour or so at Mt. Si practicing then played the back nine; my first Mt. Si outing of 2016. Shot a satisfying 41 with 5 bogeys and 4 pars… and no balls lost in the woods.

Bandon Dunes Sunrise

In my seven trips to Bandon Dunes I’ve been blessed with such good weather. Although I had mostly overcast yesterday and even a bit of light rain at the very end of the day, I got another gorgeous sunrise this morning.Bandon_practice_range_2314

Another Bandon Sunrise

It seems that on every trip to Bandon Dunes I see amazing sunrises… like this one.

At Bandon Dunes

I had an easy drive from North Bend to Bandon and arrived in time to get in an hour of practice before sunset. Got this view of the 7th and 8th holes of the Bandon Dunes courseBandon_Dunes_10277from behind the Pacific Dunes clubhouse.
