Today wasn't particularly hot, as the past week has been. After a hurried dump run before it closed, n a few store errands, the sun finally came out of the clouds. It was just after high tide, n I made it to fav beach for the first time this month after five pm.
Before five there's danger of encountering a town parking attendant asking for a sticker, proof of residency, n a fee to park... Only during the summer season- This place is designated for town residents, n well hidden too.
When I arrived there were only a few cars, only one group of folks lounging on the beach, n just a couple folks out in the water.

I brought a beach chair n lounged in the sunshine with the gulls for a bit before finally going into the water, n diving in finally! The water temp is currently in the 70F range here, very warm. My first swim was a short duration, take it easy- one. My arms n legs are very sore n bruised from the past few weeks of heavy work.
It would've been really peaceful except that one guy out in the water standing still with a friend was talking work stories non-stop the entire time. I went back n forth avoiding their zone, submerged n floated alot, then headed back to the beach.
I walked around with Digi-Cam while waiting to dry off a bit more, before sitting again a few more minutes, n chased little bugs off my legs. Total beach time about an hour, leaving about one hour before sundown. (The bugs would only get worse-)

After rinsing off there was plenty of time to get to the D-bridge between the two coves very near home to take in yet another beautiful sunset, before continuing errands n chores. (You'll see more of these later-)
After a drought of July pics since that first week, I made up for it today by getting tons! Cam batts are dead again...

So finally three weeks into July, we got some rain here, I got to swim, n I took more pics to help share my day...
(I smell an ice cream break coming on...)

Oh I love that last photo the most (all good though.) The boats in the water, the sunset, the community. Just lovely. What a beautiful place to live, Snaggle.

Ellis, I used to go way out there swimming, but I'm far more cautious than I used to be. Several boats had waterskiers were out there, n at least other folks were around- Most often I'm all alone tho!
I used to leap off sailboats in the middle of the bay in 40+ feet of water, with nothing to fear.
