At the coast

Day 143

Lincoln City
Regatta Park

11:13am:
The Scampy RV Team just made Day Camp at lovely Regatta Park in Lincoln City, Oregon. We have come here in order to be in a peaceful place for me to change the burn wound dressings on my legs.

The burn dressing on my left hand was easy to change because the burn area could be washed in Scampy's kitchen sink. Not so my legs. I could not manage lifting my foot to the kitchen sink!

However, we have an orange Home Depot 5 gallon bucket. Just perfect for burn wound washing! We plan to crank up Scampy's water heater for that wound washing!

Local weather
Prediction for the weather in Lincoln City is cloudy [No Sun] for all of Saturday. For Sunday, rain, clouds, no Sun.

However, right now, out Scampy's window we see plenty of clouds. But the Sun is pushing its light thru those clouds. Mr. Yingli, our 250 watt solar panel appreciates the Sun's effort!

BTW, many years ago, our Rogue River guide would tell us when we asked if it would be sunny on our river trip:
"I don't trust Oregon weather!"


2:21pm:
Leg burns dressed
I have just completed the dressing of my leg burn wounds. This was not a difficult task. Maybe because I've been getting a ton of wound dressing experience lately.

Also, I've observed nurses doing my burn dressing.

Leg burns dressed 

Note: Reader Joe Gima pointed out that I did not use sterile water when I washed my legs in the Home Depot orange bucket. 

I dressed my burn wounds after washing with a pad soaked with antibiotic medication.

Am I likely now to get another bacterial infection?



4:06pm:
Parking near the ocean
We on the Scampy RV Team observed this afternoon, that the entire parking area at D-River was filled to over-flowing. Lincoln City police were there to keep wanna-bees from driving in to look around.

There was quite a scene at D-River. Huge kites were flying. Police waving.

Little iPhone wants to go back there later on to take a pic for you to compare to where we are Afternoon Camped now. At the southern end of Lincoln City. Peaceful. Only a few cars parked here.

Kite Fest!



J's Fish & Chips
I know that you are crazy with wonder to know when we will go to the fabulous, wonderful, most great and truly ultimate J's Fish & Chips?

Well, we will not hide that tidbit from you! No-sir-ree!

This very evening! That's when!

      Do I? Well, perhaps I am!

      The burn wounds are healing nicely. And I'm on the road again. Heading south! 😎

      Pretty neat, huh?

    2. salt water may be an antiseptic, I don't know, but OCEAN water is not -- especially near a city, it can be contaminated

  4. Hope you get sunny, warm weather soon. That would lift the Spirit even more. Good to hear the burns are healing. That was sure a nasty occurrence. Keep well

  5. I once bought antiseptic wound wipes to use on a gash on my back legs. I cut my leg climbing through my sister's barbed wire fence (she gave me the wrong key to her gate). I went to the local clinic and was given a tetanus shot, instructed to keep wound clean with bandages & ointment. The nurse gave me a small supply of antiseptic wipes since the nearest town was 50 miles away. Lately I've been looking for these wipes but unable to find them. I ran out of supply in my first aide kit at home and in my truck. Perhaps they have them in your area drug stores. The wipes are sure handy..use them once and toss them so you don't re-infect with dirty water or wash cloth.

  6. Enjoy J's. We just might eat there every day, if we could! Those homemade chips are sooo good and the fish the very best. We've been all the way down the coastline from Victoria to San Francisco in the last few weeks. No comparison elsewhere!

    1. J.J. in S.C.,

      You said a mouthful!

      I order the homemade chips in a separate basket. They stay nice and crispy that way!

      Love J's Fish & Chips! 😍

    3. Suz,

      Over the 15 years of my RV life, I have traveled into British Columbia a few times.

      Never came across Barb's though.

      What is it?
