Hurricane Noel is moving on up

I'm not afraid of hurricanes anymore. I've been through 6 or 7 so it's still scary, but I'm used to it now. I would pack my dog up and leave if a big one came. The weather right before and immediately after one is usually beautiful in my experience. There was a nasty Nor'easter last week so it was pretty ugly though. This hurricane was too far for anyone to even think about freaking out anyway. But it's been roughing up the beach enough to make some homeowners nervous.

I probably should have stayed home with a hot cup of tea and a blanket wrapped around me because I'm still not feeling well. But that dark sky was beckoning me. I spent the day staggering around the beach but I didn't find much because the ground was covered in dead smelly sea weed and foam. I tried but I'll have more luck tomorrow if the water clears up. The wind was pretty gusty so I probably looked like a drunkard but there was no one there to see or make fun of me anyway. It was scary-foggy in a good way, I felt like I should be in a vampire movie. Beach Blanket Bloody Bingo or something :O) It was beautiful though. And loud, I loved it.

But MrPea is thinking about maybe surfing in this tomorrow morning? Good luck and don't wait for me darling. I'll wave from the shore.


Ok ok enough about the damn beach already! I'm going on a mini road trip next week so I'll have more fun things to brag about.....

I like hearing about the beach. We get to trade: you tell me about the beach and I tell you about the City.

I know I know. I've never been to NY. I'm dying to visit the art museums there.

Some of my favorite times at the beach have been when the weather is sucky...because I have the whole place to myself and my dog!

I love your beach, and a beach in a hurricane is really special. Stay safe if it hits there.

Imagine all the stuff there will be on the beach after it clears.

Oh, how I love the ocean! I am quite envious that you live so near to it. I also love those dramatic days oceanside. For several years, I lived a mere 3 miles from the Atlantic... back when I was in North Hampton, NH. I miss it terribly.

Thank you for the lovely photo.
