Above this is the weather prediction for the next 10 days. Except for Thanksgiving it is looking pretty good to me.
For the morning’s excitement, TheOFM did some Olympic quality gymnastics and acrobatics that even made my nose hairs sore. But to start at the beginning we go back to early morning. A choice was made to get over to the beach park and do some longer distance walking while it was still cool, 49 this morning. So after logging something around two miles the chosen path went out on the concrete pier near the harbor. When a graceful exit from the pier to the beach was attempted things went wrong. Keep in mind this is an exit path I have done at least fifty times in the past. As my path went down the rocks to the beach, my bad left knee failed to hold me, my left foot slipped on some dry vegetation and my right foot hit a slick spot on its intended rock. That left me with a decision to make. Should I face plant into the marsh mud and riprap rocks or should I do wondrous deeds and try to get over to the sand to land and roll. As it worked out the sand was achieved and an upright finish was also achieved to my great surprise.
The only damage was a lightly sprained left ankle, slightly twisted left knee and a slight gimp of the right hip. For an OFM event this is very limited damage. Just as surprising was that none of my red fluid was scattered anywhere. WOW
No folks were out to witness the excitement yet. In fact the place was occupied by the kiosk attendant and me. Check out this “busy” morning beach.
Late this evening, after being a good boy all day letting my injuries rest, another walk was made out on the harbor jetty. This is the one paved all the way to the end, so no special foot work is required to walk on it. Out at the end was a new style of jelly fish. Never before has this been seen with my eyes!! It was very pretty and about a foot diameter when spread out. The cloverleaf part that is visible was a beautiful pink that almost glowed.
It flowed with the currents and waves in a very delicate and graceful manner. To me it was very pretty as it responded to the movements of the water.
My luck held out when supper was purchased at the Texmex restaurant of my preference here in town. My menu choice was the chicken fried steak dinner. It was the special of the night!!!!!! Then they ran out of the mashed potatoes that were to come with it and substituted a HUGE pile of French fries. The whole meal with a quart glass of iced tea and a small cup of their fantastic tortilla soup was $7.01 before tip.
Now it is going to be a great night remembering the pier event in the effort of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
