|The temperatures started dropping yesterday evening. They went from around 52F to just above 32F and when morning came, a brisk northerly wind had sprung up causing a wind chill way below freezing. The skies had cleared and a bright sun shone across the bay. Humidity had gone to almost nothing and the air was so clear that we could make out details on the barrier peninsula a couple of miles away. For the morning walk with Molly I bundled up like I had done the last days at home on Campobello Island.|
I waited in the longest until I started what I had thought to do – putting the new spare tire on the trailer. Next week I will have to go and buy 2 more new tires for the drivers side. The ones this trailer came with are worn down after one year only.
At around 2pm our hosts took us out on a sightseeing tour to the powder beaches of the barrier peninsula. The city of Destin is a famous summer resort for the rich and mighty. To make sure they feel welcome and right at home all the known brands and fashion shops have established themselves out there. But I also saw one of the biggest Wally Worlds I have ever seen.
It sure is a place we feel like strangers in – not our cup of tea at all. It’s just too artificial for us, yet sure worth to see for a country boy like me.
When we got back home the sun was about to set and Bea grabbed the NIKON and ran down to the water. She sure got a couple of nice shots.
Thanks for dropping by!
