First Trip To The Beach 2017 - Part 1

This past week, I forget which day, I made the first trip to the beach for the new year.  The goal when you go at this time of day is to take in a good colorful sunset.  If you look at a map I was at the Reddington Shores beach area because they have a nice big municipal parking lot.  For $2.00 you can walk around for a couple hours, which, I suppose, is an OK cost for a beach walk.  

These pics are mostly a tease to get your heart racing for Parts 2 and 3, where you will be able to judge for yourselves if the sunset was worth it.  Part 2 will focus on the people I saw as I walked down to the pier and back.  Part 3 will be the pier and the sunset.   (Hint: it was a good one.)

Yeah, this was a kind of throw-away post.  Tomorrow's is, too, so be prepared.  Laziness?  Maybe,  but why throw all of the pics I took into one post?  The I'd just have to disappoint you by saying I have no posts for a day or two, and risk a reader rebellion.  Or worse yet, start pontificating over politics?  Egad!  savor the fowl above and while you have your toes pressed close to the heat register of fireplace, you can dream of living here in Kitschlandia and taking in a beach in the second week in January.  You may ask if anyone was in the chilly Gulf?  Why, yes there was.  Now go put another log on the fire.

I'm Flying!

Flying has not lost its charms on me.  I am still, after all, a small town kid and the thrill of it all is still just as real and palpable as the first time I climbed on board a plane.  That was back in my graduate days.  I took an Ozark flight from Denver to Waterloo and then to Peoria.  One could say that after flying with them each day since has been a gift.  Today I fly Allegiant and while they are at the bottom of safety maintenance and mechanical failure, no flight has ever crashed.  Knock on wood!  Where's some wood!  I can't find wood!  OK, I found a window sill.

These are the fields, small towns and by-ways of the Midwest.  This flight, taking back to Kitschland from a few weeks up North in June was one of those late afternoon, night flights that are pretty awesome.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
