Autumn!

I haven't seen the sun in I don't know how long.(that wasn't a complaint just a fact)

Just a couple weeks ago my little feet were right here and this was my sky.




This is what greets me this week. This isn't the exact same spot, I took this about 2 miles north of my usual favorite place. There's a big difference in the sand and water color but it's not like anyone could tell in this dreary weather. I should be complaining but I'm not. I'm actually enjoying the 'angry' weather. (This is looking North)

I braved the winds today and went to see the ocean. By car of course(I'm not that brave). I would like nothing more than to ride my bike to the beach right now. But I'm afraid to because the wind is blowing so hard, it would push me down. I'm dying to get over to my beach because with the Nor'easter blowing in and the tropical storm to the south, I'm sure there's all kinds of good stuff washing up. But since there's no parking(and thankfully so)I'll have to wait until the weather clears up a bit. Red tide is also a factor but it's not as bad anymore. I mean, I assume it's not because I haven't had a nose bleed since last week. The heavy rain hasn't stopped me from leaving my windows open either. It's so nice to have fresh sea air flowing through the house.(This is looking South)

That wooden box is actually supposed to be under that beach warning sign post up there. I'm assuming it was carried by the high tide some yards away and then blown on it's side. Hope all the sea turtle nests are ok. I'm thinking about joining our local sea turtle patrol. Think they'd have me?

A couple weeks ago Mr.Pea and I went shopping and this sky just snuck up on us. I haven't seen a sky with so many colors since I lived in California so it was a welcome sight.

I find myself enjoying the fall. Probably because last year I was so damn sick I missed it completely. How could I have ever disliked it?

Oh, I love those pictures.. and I love that kind of weather. Living here is like living in a Skinner Box. It's the same.. day after day!

I'd love to see some weather like that.

Wonderful pictures. I lovvvvvvve abandoned beaches, and the sunset sky makes even a mall parking lot look gorgeous.

Glad your nose is feeling better.

That pic does look like our Cali skies, you're right.

Cheers
