The Red Cross in Roseburg is open on Monday and Friday only except for in the event of holidays, and then the center will be opened on another day. Tomorrow, for instance, is the national holiday for declaring independence. The center will not be open tomorrow and so they were open for five hours yesterday.
Roland and I both made appointments so that we could donate. Jenna, who was covered in mosquito bites, felt like she already had. One difference was that neither Richard nor I itched after donating.
My sister and her family are visiting us next week. Jenna really wants us to take her cousins to the beach - which is about a one and a half to two hour drive from where we live. It was a spontaneous decision for us to just decide to go from Roseburg to Coos Bay and then to Sunset Bay (where we had never been) and because it was spontaneous, neither Richard nor Jenna were really dressed for it - each wearing long pants. I was, at least, wearing shorts and open-toed shoes.
The air temperature was nice - a little cool even. I started out on the beach wearing a sweatshirt, but did manage to shed it within the manner of minutes. Jenna was somewhat bummed that she didn't have her swimsuit, but did enjoy playing in the sand with her newly purchased sand toys.
I took several pictures in hopes that I would get at least a couple of good ones. Roland also shot a few.
