The weather in NJ recently has SUCKED. And sucked hard. We had about 10 days straight of rain.
Do you know what it does to a beach writer to not be able to get to the beach & fill orders? It's very very frustrating.
And then FINALLY this past Saturday the weather was PERFECT. It was foggy when I got up, so I wasn't able to head down to the beach for sunrise pictures. However, by 9ish, the fog had burned off and a beautiful day stretched out over NJ. I grabbed my orders and my camera and took off for the beach.
Then the unthinkable happened. Oh ok it wasn't unthinkable but it was bad.... amateurish would be a better word... my battery died in my camera. It was 2/3rds full when I got to the beach... but I was not able to get my orders completed. Thankfully I did get the oldest ones done and the one that the person needed by this Wednesday.
Yes, I do have a backup battery... somewhere... I'm sure someone put it somewhere safe.... arg.
So I charged the battery. But alas, by then it was high tide and no beach writings could be done.
I just looked at the 5 day forecast... doesn't look horrible, but doesn't look great either. I'd love to have a few days of a clear sunrise, that is my favorite time to be at the beach (5:30 am) but at this point, I don't even set my alarm.
I can't wait until we have a good stretch of beautiful weather and I can go to the beach every morning.
Want to come with me?
