The wind was on its third day of mutilating things around town today. The OFM tried fishing but the wind kept his fishing line so bowed he could not feel a fish if it had bit. Fishing out on the breakwater was a major no-no. The waves were keeping the green slime on the walking surface very slippery.
Here is a picture of a couple of smaller waves just splashing up and onto the breakwater. Now and then a big wave would just wash right on over the wall. The OFM is experienced enough to stay off that hazard. When you are old, falling HURTS.
We do some walking around the harbor and beach park on occasion. Today we got evidence that the OFM actually does at least go down there to walk. The museum near our parking spot has a web cam. Today Sierra and the OFM were caught on camera just after the OFM exited Sierra.
We put in about an hour in the wind. Not all was walking around since we know several folks and had to stop and visit each one we saw. We put in about a mile all told.
Then we boarded Sierra and road over into the beach park to just look around. Way at the far end of the main part of the park we found some hanger on flowers under a palm tree. Since they were working so hard at being pretty, we decided they needed to be shown to the world.
This pretty well sums up all the fun for the last couple of days in the excessive wind that April brings. Of course the evidence above shows that even the miserable wind does not keep the OFM Teams from getting out and trying to have tooooo much fun.
