Today being the only day off I will have this week, I decided to take a long walk on the beach. I headed for Bouge Pier, which is one of my favorite places to be in the mornings. It was the first time in quite sometime that I was able to get out early enough before the sun came up and started bearing down with all its heat and intensity. The ocean was angry, with huge waves hitting the shoreline and driving me back up near what was left of the sand dunes to try to stay dry. Surfers were out in full force trying to catch that perfect wave. As for the many others it was a battle to even paddle out without getting barrel rolled by the oncoming of one wave after another. It was nice and cool enough for a hooded sweatshirt but once the sun made its way through the clouds I was ready to shed it and take a dip. But of course I didn’t, walking, taking pictures and enjoying my morning was all I had in mind. I’m missing my digital camera something fierce and I am resorting back to film which isn’t too bad. I just have to get these rolls developed and see if my skills haven’t faded from this very long sabbatical from the camera.
The pier was busy despite being disfigured by Hurricane Irene. Irene took out the last portion of the pier and now sits awaiting repairs. In the day or two after Irene I went out to inspect the damage and today was astonished to see that they had fixed the covered benches that was about to fall in and moved the barrier closer to give the fishermen more room to fish. Not sure if that is the safest thing to do but look who’s out testing it anyway.. LOL
Many people were out fishing and just like me taking pictures of the crazy surfers who brave the uncontrollable waters. I guess you are never to old to surf and so it seems anything for that matter.

Well I’m going to take a little nap, because I deserve it, then get up off this couch and clean my house. It’s going to be a very long weekend and I’m already looking forward to Monday and Tuesday.. Better start planning for my days off in advance..
Until next time take care and God Bless!!!!
