Beached Sioux ~ George B ~ Birthday in Galice

Good 72º sunny morning. Of course it's late now, was up at 6:30 and it was a comfortable 53º. "They" keep telling us "rain" but nothing on the map.... satellite or radar.  Yesterday quite windy, but that's all.

Yesterday was fun. I went to Brian and Jen's expecting a barbecue lunch and was told, "We're going on a road trip"... So Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, Jean (Jen's mom) and I piled into their truck and off we went down to Galice. Galice is on the Rogue River and near to where the Big Windy Fire was. Fire now 85% contained and no smoke where we went. Here is a map showing where Galice is in relation to the fire area...

So much of the river was closed during the worst of the smoke and fire.
Here is Galice in relation to Grants Pass and Medford:
We had a great time. It was quite windy so we didn't sit down next to the rail by the water. Had great presents given to me... Jen found, get this, Jellybean Chardonnay! Jelly Bean Wines are vinted and bottled in Sonoma California.
