I took a brief moment to assess my environment this afternoon …
It’s very beautiful here recently. The crowds have died down over the past couple weeks on the beach here. I suppose that means summer is officially over.
I just observed the reflections of the sun setting over the ocean. Even though I face the Atlantic, I can still see very beautiful sunset reflections of all different colors. Reds, purples. It is something to behold.
We are getting fairly large waves as a result of the Hurricane Isabel, although no rain to speak of. The tide around 11pm or so comes in much much higher than usual .. only about 6 or 8 feet from the Lifeguard stations. The weather is just right, too. The humidity gets swept off into the ocean by it’s wind, and the warmth of the sun is tempered by the shade, so all in all it’s generally quite comfortable.
