After the storm clouds cleared Wednesday night — we were lucky — the weather turned bright, sunny, and chilly. I drove over to the beach again yesterday morning to see how things looked over there.
What seems to be a straight strand of sand actually curves noticeably to the south when you look west. Or is that some kind of illusion?

I was standing on the beach at about where the red dot is, looking west, when I took my photos. MA lives where I put the green dot, in Morehead City, a mile north.

The ocean was pretty rough and a stiff breeze was blowing in from the west-southwest. The breeze was not cold or unpleasant, as long as you weren't in a place where blowing sand was a nuisance — and I wasn't.
