A South Beach Day

South Beach Campground, Kite Flying

A steady wind brings out the kite flyers.  The wind was steady all day…right up to when the sun set, then it stopped.

The two RVs across from us up and left this morning, people snagged their spots real quick, and thank goodness for us, they were both tent campers…so we now how this view outside our open door.

So I was able to see the kites flying, and got the two kite pictures right from our front door.  Tonight Marcia will be able to see the sunset right from the front door.

I remember getting kites when I was a kid…we would see how long of a tail, made from scraps of clothing, we could get on it, and how high we could go.  I think the kites were under a dollar $1, and expensive ones were up around $5.  Well, that was then…this is now.  Today kites range from $10 up to…now hold onto your seat, $1,700.00!!   Yes, that is a bunch.  Want to see what you get?  Click here for the Amazon link.  Have fun…

South Beach Campground, Sunset

With few clouds all day I thought the sunset might be a little boring…but were we surprised.

Then the sun started to hit that outer bank of clouds sitting way out off coast…and things started to happen.

The sun seemed to morph from one sun, to two suns, to a mushroom looking thing, to an hour glass….people all around said they had never seen a sunset do that before.

Overall it was an interesting sky…but the close up on what the sun was doing was a rare sunset…that’s for sure.

And then it is over..just leaving the reflection off the high clouds that stretch out over the sea.   Yep, another hard day kicking back at South Beach Campground.

Note:  Using the solar today which limited our generator use a bit…but our neighbor Tino was in need of battery power so I hooked him up an electrical line and charged up his batteries along with ours…it even provided him power to heat up his water tank for a shower too.  We are going to stay until Friday, then start the trek down the coast back to the heat of the valley of Sacramento.

    1. This is the type of campground where the people in the campground make or break the experience. We are lucky in that everyone in here, and it is a wide mixture of people, are pretty cool with it all. The surroundings are something else, that's for sure. And the entertainment as a few come and go each day is also interesting.
