It has been decades since my feet have waded without shoes. This morning the beach was so inviting and the cleaning crews had just finished the raking. Barefoot was given a careful try. A cut from some sharp object is definitely not on my desirable list. The sun was nice and warm, the water nice and cool and the breeze brisk but refreshing. The sand was nice and firm under my feet. WOW it was great. Not many folks out this morning. In fact it seemed like everyone was somewhere else all day. This was a great feeling going barefoot. The leg wound has stopped getting worse it seems.
By lunch time the heat index was miserable. The temperature hit a heat index of 111 today. That is much to hot for outdoor play unless you are in cool water. Mostly it was inside messing around and a shopping trip for a fan for my bedroom. Anything was going to be in the a/c as far as my wants were considered.
Late this evening a search was made for two launch spots that were discussed on a yakking forum. This first one is a shell area that will work just fine for launching when the wind is in the correct direction.
The second is a Parks and Wildlife ramp over on St. Charles Bay. It also will work well when the wind is from a different direction than today. In this picture across the water is a peninsula that is renown for the fish catching. It is only a mile and a half across to hit the shoreline.
Now there are two more known launch points for exploring. My goodness it is time to get out paddling some of these many places.
The campground owner reworked some of the foundation area today. He cleaned it out and filled with the crushed granite. Then put a number of potted plants on the new area.
It really looks nice now. He is working diligently to get this place looking good.
As you have read, it was a gentle day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
