Never Get Tired of these Things

The hellebores are enjoying our non-winter. The pink ones are especially glorious:

Glorious Morning

It was another unbelievable spring-like day. Teed off at Druid’s Glen at 7:40 and had wonderful views of Mt. Rainier including this one from the 9th green:

Old Macdonald and Home

I teed off at 7:30 this morning; it was nippy but beautiful again.  Shot a shaky 93 (way off my 87 here last November). Had a great sunset last evening. This is looking west from the 17th tee at Pacific Dunes.

Trails and Pacific Dunes

It was another absolutely perfect day.  My golf was marginally better but still pretty poor. I love the Pacific Dunes course, no matter how I play.

Bandon Trails / Bandon Dunes

Two rounds today and pretty terrible golf. The time off has had a discernible impact on my game and these courses are not very forgiving. That said, the weather was perfect and the scenery, as always, profoundly beautiful. With an 8:00 tee time I was at the practice range literally at the crack of dawn.  What a start to the day, eh!

Bandon

I couldn’t resist the fabulous weather forecast for Bandon, even though it’s going to be nice in North Bend too. So I was off early this morning, listening to audio books, rocketing south on I-5. As usual, the sunset at Bandon Beach was lovely, even with a mostly overcast sky.
