|This is the morning view from our window.|
Tammy and I had a lazy start today. We sat next to the fire eating porridge for a healthy breakfast at the Gearhart where we stayed last night. Mom was with us during our search for lodging last night. Just as my level of frustration was getting to a high point, Tammy pulled up to a hotel I doubted we could afford. I really did not want to spend $179 for a place to sleep. Tammy came out of the Gearhart with good news. They had just reduced their rates so we got a nice room for $100. Thanks, Mom!I have tried for 2 days to edit this post...I give up. Here it is "as is":Gas prices have been around $3.75-$3.79 since we hit Portland. In search of a drugstore this morning, we found a gas station selling gas for $3.60 and Tammy gave them her a Kroger gas card that caused the price to go to $3.50! Thanks, Mom! We learned that the gas attendant has to pump your gas by Oregon state law. The attendant can get fined $3,000 if you pump your own gas! Keeps them hopping.
