As we sat down for dinner to wrap up our Big Bend adventure, we were treated to a really beautiful sunset.
We’ve had a lot of rainy days but tonight we got a short reprieve and a beautiful sunset.
This was a pretty easy travel day and it ended with an amazing sunset over the Pacific Ocean, seen from our motel room balcony, in Seaside, California.
Today we played two rounds at Legacy Ridge in the Denver suburb of Westminster. It’s a very nice municipal course with ample fairways and huge greens and at $44/round a real bargain. The Arthur Hills design offered an excellent variety of holes with interesting doglegs that blend beautifully into the natural topography (I love Hills’ designs). I shot 87 during the morning round but stumbled to 94 in the afternoon thanks to a 9 on one hole. Still a very nice day in spite of an aching tooth.
The National Weather Service-Seattle reported a high of 95 degrees today, tying the day’s record. I see that it was 91 in Miami, FL. So far the average high in July is 72.5 degrees, three degrees more than the July record set in 1941. I notice, too, that we’ve had 0.2 inches of rain since May 15, and 0.18 of that fell in one day. Here’s what an unwatered section of our yard looks like:
At least with the crumby air quality we get some nice sunsets:
The drive from North Bend to Bandon was an odd one. It was nearly 80 degrees when I left but I drove through rain, bright sun, and overcast. It’s only in the 60s in Bandon and very cloudy. Even in the nine o’clock fog, Bandon Beach is eerily lovely.
