A Little Beach Time

As it gets cooler, the allure of dawn at the beach is greatly reduced.   45 degrees, even 55, is a bit nippy.  I begin to find reasons excuses not to go.  I don’t even know where my winter clothes are.  I can’t find my walk-on-the-beach shoes.   My chair’s not in the car anymore.

When really I just don’t like being cold. Which is perfectly legit.

But it still warms up during the day around here.  60s and low 70s.  On Saturday, it hit 63 and I decided to brave it.  The sun was out, it wasn’t too windy, what the heck.

And of course it was lovely.

Ocean waves...

The waves were lovely, as always.  The light was different, there were shadows where often there are none.

I didn’t have my chair, so I sat in the swing for a while and rocked a bit.

Then I decided to go adventuring – I was going to take the walkway and see where it came out on the street, just for the fun of it.  Until I saw the sign.  In case you can’t see it, it says:  WARNING.  Venomous Snake Nesting Area.   Yikes.  That slowed me up.

I did go part way over the walkway before I decided I was not really that interested in finding the street anyhow.  

I didn’t stay as long as I might have because it was still nippy, I need to remember to dress twice as warmly as I think I need to.  But Wednesday promises to be warm and sunny again and I’m taking the afternoon off anyhow, pre-Thanksgiving, so I’m going to try again then.  It is definitely worth it.

In other news, I’ve started using WordPress’s new editor.  We’ll see how that goes…

  1. Snakes and beaches [insert shiver] … we have black water snakes here … not venomous but they can get quite big. Snakes freak me out so when we are in snake territory Frank walks ahead. The goods news is they don’t like the chill this time of year so no more walking worries until Spring arrives.
    … your beach looks beautiful, Olivia … nj … xx

    • Right? Snakes in general don’t freak me out — my daughter had pet snakes as a child and teen – but venomous ones are a little bit different. Good point about the chill slowing them down, I will keep that in mind! And thanks 🙂 I’m glad you like my beach! ❤


  2. I wonder what kind of snakes they are. If they’re rattlers; at least they’ll warn you if you get too close. I live in an area with rattlesnakes and I see them quite often – but have never had a problem because of their sound!
