We counted 40 small private fishing boats on the bay yesterday evening. Dave spotted a pod of dolphins from the deck yesterday afternoon, and I saw a few this morning.
We’re never in a hurry here or on a timetable of any sort, so today started leisurely with a general plan for breakfast at Uncle Bill’s Pancake House once we felt like heading into town. While Dave did a bit of bike maintenance, I took a walk. Had a lovely chat with a local lady neighborhood resident, a right “girlie yap.” Nice way to start the day.
We did get over to Uncle Bill’s and had a totally yummy breakfast, as usual. On the way back, we stopped off at Sunset Beach to check out a little outdoor café Dave spotted on a bike ride the other day. '
I prowled the little shops; we may return to the café one day this week.
This is also the spot of the S.S. Atlantus, one of the experimental concrete ships built as part of the World War I Emergency Fleet.
That’s a bit of the Atlantus sticking up from the water to the left of the sign.
As you can tell from today’s photos, it was rather overcast this morning. We did have some light rain and possibly more later, but no complaints here; it’s been perfect so far with sunglasses as a mandatory accessory.
Took a break from composing this post and now it’s evening. We’ve had a couple of walks, one just a bit ago with the sound of thunder in the distance.
Another nice day of chillin’ at the beach . . .
Thanks for stopping by!
