7:59 am - Saturday - October 28th - Lone Rock - 49º F, humidity 39%, wind 4 mph out of the west.......anecdotal observation.....NO wind at all.  The sun has just risen above the distant escarpment.......


Good morning!

I am really getting into waking up with the sun!  I am really getting into it not being 19º outside when I get up so I can go out and take a sunrise picture without freezing important appendages.  I am really getting into wearing shorts, t-shirts and flip flops every single day before noon!  I love sitting by the fire each evening looking east to see how the light from the setting sun (behind us) is hitting the sandstone in the distance........


There are 10's of thousands of seashells everywhere you walk

This is the typical size of these seashells

......and I love that while taking a hike along the beach Friday we came across a sign in the sand made of seashells saying "I love you"......I don't know how long ago that was made, but how cool to discover it on a day I'm just loving being  at Lone Rock with TLE!

 TLE!!

Around 12:30 pm when we were done lazing around we decided to take the aforementioned walk along the beach to the west to see how far we could walk.  It was an idyllic day with just enough breeze to take the edge off the sun's heat.  As far as walks go, this was not a long one for us......just 3.2 miles in length, and very, very flat, but it was perfect......




.....we were back 'home' by 2 pm and sitting outside reading for the rest of the afternoon.  At the time of our return I checked the battery monitor again and found we had reached 100% sometime while we were gone, and we still have not had to run either of our generators to put charge into our batteries.  Each morning when I get up I check the charge state and it is always exactly at 89%, even after several hours of TV watching the night before.   By 8:30 the batteries are being charged by the sun, and before 2 we are always back at 100%.

Around 5 pm I moved our chairs back over to the fireplace, lit the fire, lit a cigar, turned on some Vivaldi's 4 Seasons and we watched the light dancing on the distant escarpments once again.......



......around 6 pm I put a filet mignon on the Sea-B-Que and within 14 minutes that 2 inch thick filet was ready for human consumption.....we chased the steak with some Pinot Noir, and enjoyed sides courtesy of TLE consisting of a baked potato and some caramelized onions.  Unfortunately, my Dodgers took the edge of a great day by dropping game 3 of the World Series to the Astros 5-3.....ah well, it's only sports, not real life......life is good!

Thanks for stopping by!
