Rest – Tuesday December 1, 2009

So the weekend was nearly over and the weather was getting more gorgeous by the day, meaning bright sunny days. The previous weekend we actually had about 4 overcast days. In a row. Yeah, we’re not used to that. Spoiled is what were are. In the winter, anyway. Spoiled is what you northerners are in the summer. While we broil in our shells.

So we just go to the beach to make up for it. Our Sunday afternoon/evening was completely open so we went to Jekyll Is. Lovely except for a few sand gnats determined to eat supper. Oh, and by the way, that’s Jekyll Island, not Jekyl is. I have a good friend who was going to Edisto Is. with some friends and she kept wondering what was up with the Edisto Is. signs. She said, “Edisto is what?”

For you locals, in case you wonder where these were taken, we were on the north pier at dusk. Dusk lighting is the best. St. Simons Is. in the distance:

A grackle doing aerobics:

Another grackle is speechless:

Trawlers on their way back home:

And so they returned home that evening, so rested that they had to drag themselves in the house, and drop onto the couch in a puddle of  …

Nevermind.
