It’s the middle of June and I’m finally able to say I spent quality time at the beach. Not, “Hey, let’s run up to the beach for a minute before the next Nor’easter hits and it’s too freakin’ cold!” or “Let’s see if we can manage twenty minutes before the next rainstorm hits.” The weather here has just been terrible. And that makes this beach bum quite unhappy.
Or it did until this week. Finally, I got some time in the sun! The best part is that I’ve found this cool little spot that not too many of the locals know about so if you get there early, you can find not only a primo spot on the sand, but excellent parking too. Bonus!
The only downfall this visit were the flies. It was something I’ve never encountered to this extreme. Very bizarre. As we pulled in there people leaving and complaining about how many flies were buzzing around. I thought they were exaggerating. Nope. If you stood still for too long, they landed. In the tens. Then they bit. So, we played in the water to keep them off. Win-win. We stayed cool and insect-free.
These guys did too. Smart puppies (they aren’t mine):
Neither are any of these homes:
This guy was chilling by our blanket:
On a side note: A big thank you to all of you bought and downloaded my book, Steps Along My Shore, last week. I apologize to those of you who ran into any glitches along the way. I’m definitely still learning the ropes.
