Happy New Year!

It was bound to happen again considering where we are - you got it! FOG! I woke up feeling slightly nauseated and when I looked out the window I knew why but up I got and out into the fog for my morning constitutional. Actually by the time I got back I wasn't feeling too bad but it looks like we're in for 4 or 5 days of cloudy, humid weather so chances are the fog will be around for a while at least in the mornings. The fog did clear and around 10 a.m. the wind started to pick up as well but it turned out just to be a few gusts.

I did a walk around the park this morning checking different camera settings so I'm posting some photos that I took.

The new pier that's under construction

The rec hall
For Ellie and Jim, the following two photos are of site #17. You can back in from either side of the palm tree but you have to get between the electric post and the deck.

Not much was planned for today so not much was done. I sat outside and read for a while as we did have some sun for about three hours then came in for more reading and a nap. I think we reached a high of about 68F (20C) today. I know it was hot in the sun as I put the canopy up on the chair and turned my back to it.

I went over to the rec hall this morning to return a book and found out that they are having a "do" tonight, just finger foods but I wasn't aware so have nothing to take. There's also a dinner tomorrow but I think we'll skip it. We might drop in to wish people at Happy New Year tonight though, just to be sociable (which we usually aren't!)

In recent years I've stayed up to watch the ball drop in New York however I stayed up till midnight last night (I thought it was 11 p.m.) so probably won't tonight unless I get a second wind.
