Travels with a Tiny Teardrop Trailer – Day 4 (cont.)
After a day that included a museum tour, retail therapy, and beach walking in late afternoon sunshine, we make our way back to our campsite, looking forward to sitting around a campfire sipping wine while Bro fixes those delayed hamburgers on the Titanic‘s outdoor kitchen BBQ. We get the fire going strong, the outdoor kitchen is activated, the burgers are ready to go and the wine is poured – and Bro has rolled out the awnings just in case.
And a good thing, too.
Almost as soon as we have sat down in our camp chairs, we get another dose of Oregon weather. the sun disappears, the clouds roll down with the event of the day. This time, it’s hail. Serious hail.
Even Bro’s brave little moppet of a dog is awed by the onslaught. But thanks to the strategic awning, the Titanic‘s indomitable propane tank, and (let’s admit) the excellent wine, we are undaunted. We sip, the burger sizzle, we eat them inside the Titanic, where we are warm and dry. The fire is the only thing dampened by the weather.
Will it rain on us all the way home? Will we be able to reload those bikes we left behind at Bro’s house? What route will we take back to sunny (we hope) California? Stay tuned!
