Monday in Avalon

Ken had a tough night's sleep and was up by 6:15.  I was up in time to watch the 7:00 news.  Ken got us a bowl of fresh fruit while I got ready.  We made eggs for breakfast, cleaned up and then packed snacks and drinks to take with us today for our seaglass hunt at Fortescue. 

The 4 of us took the hour drive in Martin's truck stopping at Wawa for hot drinks.  It was raining lightly when we left the CG, but it was a very nice day at Fortescue.  We thought we would be there till 1 or so, but we only left around 2 after a very successful seaglass hunt.  

This is the beach at Fortescue.

Our seaglass hunt is on.
A lady who was also looking for seaglass suggested we go to Gandy Island to do more hunting and when we discovered it was only about 20 minutes from our location we hopped in the truck and drove there.  We didn't find as many pieces, but some of the colors were amazing and so unusual.  Doloris and I each found a piece of red, Fred some beautiful blue pieces and Ken many gorgeous teals.

Just a small beach area at Gandy Beach.

My back says enough seaglass hunting.....

.....but it is so hard to stop.  Just 1 more piece!

This is Ken and my finds from both areas.  Many nice colors.

We arrived back to the CG around 4:45, showered, and watched the local news to get an update on Hurricane Jose who will create some rain, strong winds, some tidal waves and beach erosion.  It appears we will be just fine, but the coastline could get "messy".

Ken took a needed nap while I worked on this blog and downloaded photos.  My computer keyboard decided to act strangely as several of the keys would not
work - the g, h, delete and backspace.  What is that about?  I asked Google about the problem and none of their "fixes" solved the problem.  If you have any suggestions please let me know.

After dinner we went to Fred and Doloris RV to play Hand and Foot.  The women did extremely well the first 2 rounds but the men  only lost by alittle - 105 points. If you play this game you know how very close the game was.  

We were back to Wilbur around 10.  This certainly was a fun and exciting day. We love looking for seaglass.

Tomorrow sounds like a rainy one, probably time for more game playing!
