    Default Where's Earl?

    As many of you know my Dad's name is Earl, so Hunter and I thought we would seek out the Hurricane with such a familiar name.

    We walked to Coast Guard Beach in North Eastham from our house in search of Earl.

    We could not find him.

    It was a nice walk to the beach, but no signs of an approaching hurricane.

    We have experienced those before. This wasn't it. Oh well.

    Ah. but what we did find was that all beach access was restricted by the National Seashore. Yikes! We just wanted to visit the beach.

    It was deemed too dangerous by the National Park Rangers.

    However, with a little extra effort we made it to the beach.

    We were the only ones there. Wow.

    Remember, this is one of the most visited beaches in the world.

    It was a great day out even if the Hurricane pulled a no show.










    To the beach:

    No one at the beach today:

    What a pretty beach. Earl didn't even leave a drop of rain in my town in No. Jersey.

    Great pics, Doug! What a neat walk!

    I did hear this morning from a co-worker that while Earl DID rumble with Nantucket, the Island landed a solid kick to the flank and sent him out to sea.

    <--- waves buh bye to Earl. Didn't meet ya, didn't greet ya, didn't miss ya.

    Nice place to be - with or without Earl.

    The morning after Earl went by Maine I headed to Portland Head Light to see - and did not find much.



    Jim Salge was there taking pictures also.

    Beautiful photos Doug, Hunter, Brad and Anna. The coast always makes for some really nice photos.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!
