A chilly, blustery morning to be out taking pictures... But here I am nonetheless.
See that tiny little pickup truck on the right? That's a Japanese pickup truck; I recognize it because they were all over Japan when I was stationed there. And the reason it's here is because various supplies have to be brought from shore to the Marina, and that little pickup truck will actually fit on the bridge so they can drive those supplies into the Marina.
But, of course, the bridge was designed for people to walk on, so when the little truck drives on it, the weight of the truck makes the bridge take some strange shapes. I've watched it drive across the bridge before, and I wouldn't want to have been the first person to see if that idea worked.
Laziness and not doing much of anything today has caused me to skip my blog post and just do pictures. But unfortunately for everyone I'm sure I'll be writing more tomorrow.
This must be hardy bunch, because the wind was pretty chilly, and the water was fairly choppy, I would say just enough to make fishing mostly uncomfortable. But when you work for a living, you gotta take what you can get, and this Saturday morning was probably all they could get.
The beach is full on a Saturday morning before the sun comes up, in fact the beach was full by lunchtime yesterday, but folks were still showing up. So all they could do was drive off looking for another boondocking area to stay in. I hope they found something but the beach areas are getting smaller and smaller and holding less and less folks, as the waters rise higher and higher.
If your highly moble, and you've simplified your life, you can always find a place to boondock, even if it's as crowded as the Elephant on a weekend.
Boondockers on the beach.
It was a busy day for boating. The parking lot on the right is the main boat trailer parking, and the parking lot up top is the overflow boat trailer parking.
I finally figured out what the huge parking lot where I'm boondocked is used for. It's a boat trailer overflow lot for the upper boat trailer overflow lot.
You can see the Lance boondocked in the background.
It wasn't a great day today weatherwise, him him him but you can see how many boats showed up here anyway. Can you imagine how many boats come to this place on a summer weekend? And what must it look like on a holiday like the fourth of July.... One things for sure, I definitely wouldn't want to be here, and pity those that are.
If it had been a NICE day, they would've brought the whole family.
Have you ever heard of "Chicken of the Sea?" Well, this is that chicken. These Sea Chickens taste just like a regular chicken except their soggier.
