let it begin

‘on a winter’s day’..  first day of winter at 1128am.. like I didn’t friggin know …duh..as I somehow got here in the northeast in a place called Joisey..  countdown begins.. as per the usual when I’m up here ..time to leave yet.. first day of winter hit 39*…at least the sun was shining and NO snow.. on to Long Island tomorrow for more of a winter’s stay

on the road again

heading north where the sun don’t shine.. passing by familiar places –Ft Lee Petersburg Virginia  stationed here Sept 1966 thru April 1 1967 before deploying on a nice free cruise courtesy of Uncle Sam to RVN.. gotta love those powdered eggs…  stopoff in Joisey on the way up to visit relatives for the Christmas season

nice.. quiet.. peaceful

another pretty  nice 52* early morning..saw a few dog-walkers on the beach at 40th street.. wished them a Merry Christmas including Honey.. Yodel and Princey.. sun cooperated with a nice sunrise.. plenty of gulls along the surf line.. temps ran up to 66* and sunny most of the day.. beautiful day.. 47 days to go

gulls excited at the Sunrise
a gull chillin’ out

ahhhh.. a smidge warmer

52* this morning.. a lot better than the previous few early mornings at the beach.. low clouds spoiled the sunrise.. just 3 others on the beach near the pier..  stopped on the causeway as the sun popped out about the low clouds.. then on over to the Park at the ICW for a few snaps.. not a bite as I again ‘wet a line’ at the lake before heading home.. nice day all around with temps getting up to 65* this afternoon with sunny skies

low clouds made for a not so great Sunrise
