I finally took a couple of hours off from my duties here and drove the two or three miles over to the beach yesterday afternoon. It was a bluish gray day with a breeze, but not at all chilly considering the season — even right on the beach.
I was surprised to see as many people on the beach as I did. They weren't exactly in bathing suits, but they seemed to be enjoying themselves.
What you see above is the end of a fishing pier. It's open to the public for a fee. Fishermen can cast their lines and try their luck in ocean waters. The pier might be closed for the season right now.
It's nice to be able to walk your dog on the beach in February. I miss Callie and I think she would happy to take such a walk on her 9th birthday, which is today.
