holy macaroni.. brrrrr before sunrise at the beach this morning.. 48*.. gotta be some kinda record for us..decided to wet a line in the surf.. nice water 72* just one lousy bump plugin’.. no one out there except a couple of dog-walkers..’tourons’ are hiding with these kewl temps.. got up to 77* this afternoon–sunny.. awaiting the heavy rains tomorrow morning.. an Anhinga sitting around by the Lake on the drive home.. looks out and sees a small Gator approaching.. and ‘beats feet’
off to the beach at 40th Street..a few dog-walkers with the beach mostly deserted on this Saturday morning.. thought for sure the ‘tourons’ would be in town–guess not.. a stop off on the drive home at the Lake.. Ospreys were at their regular nest
at Sunrise on Sunset beach early this morning.. a crappy forecast turned into a decent sunrise..what can I say..heavy t-storms held off to late afternoon..
ICW this morning.. wet a line for less than a half hour.. same uglee dirty brown water as the surf was.. nada
clouds at sunrise..and watching a local gecko get comfy on a lamp post
saw Jim S’s truck in da’ Pier parking lot.. paid the buck to get out onto da’ Pier.. met up with Jim.. watched him catch mucho-many–well how about a few–sharks and a chopper-blue… turned into a nice 80*+ day –Sun is shining.. a couple of my Surf-Casting bottom rigs—an Abu 6500 Sports Rocket with a St Croix 10′ surf rod & an Avet SX in purple of course with a St Croix Mojo 10′ surf rod in Purple
a bit on the ‘kewler’ side this morning at Sunrise overlooking the backwaters at Sunset Beach.. 48*.. sun broke thru mid-morning only to be gone with overcast skies off/on all day..
after a sloggy crappy weather trip up to Brooklyn dropped off the Hertz Rental– we don’t take our vehicles up to Brooklyn–ya gotta be nutz.. headed back home and while still in North Myrtle Beach saw this rainbow appear after a short rain shower so I had to pull over into a parking lot to snap a couple of pics with the Note 4 phone.. #1 in Auto Standard-mode and #2 in Panorama-mode for a wider angle shot
|Panorama wider angle using Note 4
of the falling rain…rain…rain.. left Brooklyn 1130am.. there is a 5 boro bike-athon going on in the rain and of course they have the lower level of the Verrazano Bridge shut down just to piss me off one last time.. arrrrgggghhhhh!!!
