I never realized it was such a problem to get mail on the road. Not that it's actually been a problem, but more of a nuisance!! My permanent address is at a UPS store so I don't have to worry about someone stealing my mail or paying someone to pick it up at my house. That part has worked out well ... except when I'm home, I have to make the 5 mile trip at least once a week.
I looked for a drop box in Seaside, but finding none, headed to the Pendleton Outlet Store ... and what should I find directly across the street in the alley, but a UPS store. Tiny, but a UPS store nonetheless. YAY!!! Not only did I get the papers sent off, but I can have my mail delivered to them, all of four blocks from where I'm staying!!
I imagine over time, I will know where every UPS store is along the coast, as well as the best places to eat and where to get fuel. Now if I can just remember them all!!!!
Once that was accomplished, I hung up my $50 shirt that I paid $16 for, worked on the loom and played with the puppies. Finally at 2:30 I headed to the beach with Nick and Terry for another Revolution kite flying lesson. I need LOTS of them!!!
I definitely think it would help if we had a little more wind because even my super ultra light kite kept falling out of the sky. There's supposed to be a storm coming in during the next couple of days ... not that I want to be out there with a kite when there's lightning around ... but maybe that will shake things up a little!!
After a couple hours, I was pretty tired since I had walked the 400 yards to the beach in very deep sand TWICE when I dropped my kite handle and didn't realize it. I was almost too tired for the GREAT barbecued chicken Dan cooked!!
Me thinks today will be a rest day in preparation for expected winds of OVER 10 mph because 5 mph just isn't cutting it!!!
