PCH Road Work

Posted: 04/15/2015 by goodie in news

Ya…..it’s been a major traffic head ache over the last few months. The new sewer pipe construction along PCH in Newport has caused traffic snarl after traffic snarl as well as some car accidents. The good news….it’s supposedĀ  to stop sometime next week. The bad news….round two of the re-sewer pipe construction begins sometime after summer.

It’s that time of year for those creepy and crawly’s to start infiltrating your home and yard again. This bad boy I located on the sand in front of the house…..I’m told it is a poisonous Funnel Spider; at least it was a poisonous Funnel Spider. RIP

Sea Glass Art

My first ever sea glass art piece. Composed of 100% sea glass that I collected….mostly from the beaches of Monterrey, California but some from Newport as well. The clear backing allows the sunlight to shine thru creating a stained glass look. It is hanging in a window of my bedroom and I have plans to make another…..just have to collect the sea glass first!

Wild Waves

We saw huge waves hit Newport over the weekend and this morning. The 56st lifeguard tower was manned and we watched as the lifeguard team preformed rescue after dangerous rescue. It was announced this afternoon that over 185 rescues were preformed this weekend….a record breaker.

Pisgah Lava Field

Pisgah lava field is an amazing spot in the Mojave dessert. This is a huge area to explore with many lava tubes, caves and vents. We also drove to the top of the crater which offered up an amazing view and some interesting blue lava rock.

As my luck would have it, I was not home for the hail and thunderstorms that occurred Monday morning. However, the entire weekend was filled with rain, strong winds, clouds, lightning and thunder. This is the amazing sunset from Sunday night.

Last time we were out at the Sand Box we located one of the many Petroglyph sites in the Mojave Desert. This one is located very near the Desert Megaphone and is quite impressive.
