Beach Stroll

Ocean City, NJ

I rose early with Dapper G to go to the beach.  It was a bit cloudy, but it wasn’t humid nor hot. And what a relief after the grueling heat and humidity we’ve been getting! The boardwalk leading to the beach made pretty silhouettes against the morning sky.

Dapper G was going to catch Spot, a little fish that he uses for bait to catch bigger fish. So I strolled the beach taking photos while he tossed his net.

Clouds provide a great opportunity for good photos, and today they made cotton ball patterns against a cerulean sky. They held the promise of a nice day.

It was a peaceful morning but a little busy with early risers walking dogs, jogging, or strolling like me.

The jetties along the beach are supposed to prevent beach erosion, but nothing can stop a Nor’easter from reclaiming the sand. Mother Nature keeps taking her beach back. 

We returned to the dock, down the street from our home, where Dapper G has coffee with all those crazy Republican friends of his and where we have eaten breakfast every weekend for the past twelve years. Hope you all had a great weekend, too!

    How true – lovely post and I could almost smell the salt water.

    • Thanks, Kathy. Haven’t been posting much. Torn between paying for more space or writing articles for hubpages.com where there is always the possibility of making $$. Funny that I’ve all-of-the-sudden gotten frugal!1
