A cold, windy and rainy day at the Bob Hall pier this morning.
It was a cold gray day today, and even though the roar of the waves hitting the beach woke me up this morning before dawn, I didn't even bother getting out of bed to watch the sun come up because I knew it was going to be totally overcast.
Later in the morning I walked over to the beach to take a few pictures but didn't stay very long. It was 55° but the 99.9% humidity made it feel like 25°, so between the light mist falling and the wind blowing so hard the red warning flags were having trouble clinging to their flagpoles I beat feet back to the Arctic Fox and called that five minute visit to the beach my accomplishment for the day.
I'm mentally juggling my various options on what I should do now that my stay at Padre island is rapidly coming to an end, and since I don't think much further ahead than a day or two my main concern at the moment is do I go, or do I stay? And I'm leaning towards staying for another week. I say this with some trepidation because there's a few days next week when it's supposed to be cold and rainy, which are not my favorite kind of days, but all in all I've rather enjoyed my stay here and more importantly, I just don't feel like leaving right now.
Sometimes I leave where I'm at because I feel like I want to be somewhere else, and sometimes I go somewhere else because I don't like where I am. But if I can't figure out somewhere I'd rather be than where I am, I've always found it best to not go anywhere else until I don't want to be where I am. So right now where I am is just as good a place as somewhere else, so maybe I should stay where I am until I want to be somewhere else.....Inless I change my mind and leave Sunday morning.
the waves were hitting the pilings and splashing up onto the pier, there was only four or five truly dedicated fishermen on the pier this morning.
Cold and dreary, not a good way for a beach to be.
Hardly anyone at the beach today, it's just too cold.
