Some Beach Days Are Just Gloomy
This panoramic shot kind of sums up the day on the beach today. Cloudy, foggy, cool. Sun did show up for a few hours so Marcia got her needed dose of sunlight (otherwise…well…we won’t talk about it), but the foggy, cloudy cool part came right back around 4 pm.
By 8:30 or 9 pm, this is the closest thing I could find to a sunset. Keeping the mist off my glasses and off the camera was hard to do, but at least I got something!
While the sun was kind of out, Tino (left) and Gil (right) wanted a picture of us with the rocks that Gil had created. He is very talented, I have seen a few picture he was drawing and they were real nice. (I don’t know that bearded guy in the middle)
On one side he wrote the date and the place, on the other he drew a picture of a shark. Gil’s real name is Joseph, and autographed them as such. This is just the kind of stuff you run into when camped at this beach. The longer you are here, the more friends you make.
It probably was a good sunset out there somewhere…but not anywhere near us. But we have had a great time here at South Beach Campground…we would not hesitate coming back in the future. Tomorrow we head on south to Ocean Shores where there is a casino to park at, a grocery store to stock up, a laundry mat for dirty clothes, and a great Land and Sea Buffet for Friday’s nights dinner.
