We arrived at Huntington Beach about 9:30am and headed across the causeway.
It is said that when the birds leave, we should leave…glad to see this camper had heard the same thing!!
Just as we got parked near the beach path, the rains started. So on went the NEW HATS…we just knew we would get a chance to test them out ;o))
We arrived at the beach to see Irene was already stirring up the waves. The surf is usually like a lake!!
The test was a success, we are happy with the hats. Just need to check them out in the SUNSHINE!!!
We took a drive through the campground on our way out. So glad to see that most campers had left the area.Normally the last week before school starts, this place would be packed like sardines... empty today :o)))
As we headed back across the causeway, I thought to myself, “hard to believe this is the same place we rode our bikes on Sunday and saw all the wildlife!!”
Definitely time to go home, hunker down and just wait out the storm.
However, we had one more important mission to accomplish. Bill and I are tomato lovers ;o)) Our garden tomatoes have been done for some time. But we know of a special place to get the best tomatoes ever…JERSEY TOMATOES!!!
Just in case, Irene decides to take all the tomatoes for herself as she passes over New Jersey… we got a few of these one pound beauties to enjoy!!
It is noon here as I finish typing this blog. The rain is getting heavier and the wind has picked up some. Irene is making her presence known. Our thoughts are with everyone further north… we hope everyone is in a safe place and out of harms way.
TAKE CARE and BE SAFE!!
