Stormy Night

When we came back to our RV Wednesday evening, a storm was rolling in.  Still we took our evening stroll down the beach, though it was not as pleasant as every other night this week has been.  The surf was beginning to pick up, the sky was darker, and the air was frigid.  But the biggest challenge we had was the wind.  First, we had to walk facing the wind as it stung our faces, but then we turned and walked with the wind at our back.  But that created its own unique problems:

    Ah, the wind-blown look — usually you have to set up great big fans to achieve it!

    I think you’re supposed to invite people to kiss the other end on New Year’s Eve! You better find some new pantaloons!


  21. The OP Pack on December 31, 2009 at 8:28 am

    You are like the mailman, you get to walk in all sorts of weather – this one sure shows the fluffy tail at its fullest. It has been a pleasure to follow you this year for all of your walks and fun. Wishing you the best in 2010.

    Woos and Happy New Year, Phantom and Thunder
