The city of Port Orford website says that Port Orford is the oldest town on the Oregon coast and the most westerly in the 48 contiguous states. The pictures show stunning ocean views. Why am I writing about Port Orford you may ask? The spouse and I are considering volunteering at Port Orford Heads State Park as Interpretive Hosts for the month of May. The park will provide us with a camp site for our 5th wheel trailer and we would each volunteer 22-24 hours a week. We've never been to Port Orford and this seems like a great opportunity to spend a month at the beautiful Oregon coast.
Why are we hesitating? We'd have to be there by May 1st. We just started painting the house. (...and when I say "we" I mean the spouse and I, not some painting service.) I was going to go to San Diego in May to see my Dad for his 88th birthday. We still have a lot of work to do in the garden. There are always a lot of reasons to say no. That's just the fear of the unknown making itself heard. I think we'll probably do this. It will be an adventure.
