Off the Grid: Power can be found in using it sparsely

I am addicted to my volt meter. Every morning, I wake up, I look at the meter. Throughout the day, I constantly glance at the meter. When I’m outside, I look through the window to take a peek at the meter. Especially at night, my eyes gravitate to the meter.

Living off grid means that you have to be aware of how many amps (A), volts (V), and watts (W) you’re using. The way I remember the scientific equation is to put it in alphabetical order, A x V= W.  And then think of it as a basic fact family: W/V= A, and W/A= V.

As I write this column… I glance at the volt meter. It’s at 12.0 V. I have my laptop and phone charging. Oh… and the radio is on.

Church Notebook: Turning to prayer in time of frustration

How much does it take to cause frustration for you?

I’ve had plenty the last few days.

Would you believe it was a repeat performance?

The Tolowa Dunes Stewards invite Del Norters to seek out beach primrose, silvery phacelia and other blooming wildflowers that dot the shores of lakes Earl and Tolowa on Sunday. 

Led by naturalist Sandra Jerabek, the wildflower walk is the first in a series of nature programs the Tolowa Dunes Stewards and Redwood Parks Conservancy sponsors each summer.

Jerabek will take folks to a 30-acre restored area of Tolowa Dunes State Park and the Lake Earl Wildlife Area where up to 70 plant species thrive. Along the way, hikers will learn how the plants, many rare and endangered, survive despite the sun and wind.

Harbor Gallery activities for June 

Crescent Harbor Gallery’s artist of the month is Lee Beising, who originally took painting and life drawing classes at San Jose State and painted strictly in oils but moved on to watercolor when she met artist Garretta Lamore and was introduced to Coast Redwoods Art Association 14 years ago.  A sampling of her work is currently on display along with pieces by other gallery members. The gallery’s “fourth Thursday demo” will be given by Arlene Krogstad, who will demonstrate her wet-on-wet watercolor technique at noon on June 26, preceded by a potluck. For more information call Crescent Harbor Gallery at 707-464-9133 or stop by 140 Marine Way. Several members also have their works on display at the association’s second location at 1228 2nd St., the 2nd Street Gallery, which can be contacted at 707-460-1414.

Farmers markets start this week

With expanded hours and more promotion, opening day at the Wednesday and Saturday farmers markets is sure to be crowded. But Paul Madeira of Ocean Air Farms is ready.

“Lots of strawberries. That’ll be our thing,” he said. “Strawberries are at their pinnacle and then we have spinach and cabbage and beets and leeks. Zucchini, kale, lettuce, salad turnips and bok choy and broccoli.”

Family ties bound to wedding place

Mark Raymond and his wife Gina were married at Patrick Creek Lodge last week.
Jack Raymond remembers a Patrick Creek Lodge that existed before the modern highway.

Formerly known as Patrick Creek Stage Station, Raymond’s grandparents built the present lodge in 1926. His job was to keep the woodbox full since the only thing powered by electricity was the lights. 

“I remember just before the road was put in I could ride my bicycle down to Gasquet and only see about three cars, which you had to watch for on a bicycle,” Raymond said.
