ICW kinda morning

after all those people on the beach before sunrise yesterday morning didn’t bother to go over to the island today.. stopped by the ICW and the lake for a few snaps.. it was down to Costco for some shopping as per our usual.. 95* and sunny most of the day.. da’ HEAT is here..

windy.. low clouds..Pier

not much of a Sunrise with the low clouds hanging in there this morning although I still drove over to the beach… stopped up on da’ Pier as Tom’s car was in the parking lot.. with the strong WSW winds blowing at 15-20 at the beach and uglee dirty brown water nobody was catching up on da’ Pier.. just a blowout kinda day.. now I know why I stopped fishing up there 8 years ago after 17 pier-pass seasons.. looks like record heat for the week starting tomorrow with Weather Alerts posted….  Record HEAT notice

drive home day #2

stayed at the Hyatt Place in Chester.. nice hotel with a super good breakfast.. only 5+ hours from home.. decided to make a stop at the Costco in Wilmington at the end of I-40… back home mid-afternoon… unpacking may take a while.. back in da’ HEAT–high 80’s..

the Maasdam arrived in Boston under heavy rain and fog at 6am.. rain stopped & off the ship by 830am after saying our goodbyes to our friends Frank and Linda who were off on a car-trip up to Maine and over to Quebec before going home .. heavy traffic with detours from Tappan Zee Bridge to the GW Bridge with a ride thru da’Bronx–who woulda thunk it.. decided to stop in Chester Va at the Hyatt Place hotel..not too far from Hopewell and Petersburg-Ft Lee—names from the past–1967
