A very nice trip down. We took our time and did not run into any traffic.

Sunday brought a nice early morning walk followed by a PITA problem fixing the toilet followed by a PITA problem fixing the master bathroom lights.  No small task it took most of the day.  We did get a short walk on the beach.

Monday morning's sound walk:

Venison for breakfast!!!!!!

You take the one on the right!!!

Did a whole lot of floating around in the ocean on Monday.  The ocean was calm as can be.

If you were on the beach and saw two old farts laughing and playing in the waves, that was us.  We had a great time and behaved like children playing in the ocean.

Chico and Cookie, both out without leashes, heard fireworks and took off.  Cookie was caught but Chico took HOURS of searching and finally turned up over at Pangea Tavern.  They are now both on leashes at all times, as it should have been.

This is "Cookie Lesson One:  Leash Training":

More deer.  There was a whole group of them right behind the trees:

A storm blew in off the ocean as we got home:

There are a bunch of people at the end of the pier who are about to get REALLY wet.

Here is a video of a rainbow moving on shore.  It disappeared just before landfall as the rain stopped.

Our last few days has rough ocean and a bit of rain.
