It was great to wake up this morning to the sound of the ocean. And yesterday when we got here it was just as hurricane Hannah was about to dump vast amounts of rain. Being a hundred yards from the beach as a hurricane roils the ocean is quite something.
We’ll be here on Long Beach Island for a week. More specifically, Beach Haven. It’s part of this very slim little island, so narrow you can see the bay when you look to the right as you drive along and the ocean on the left. It appears to have a lot of houses like this one that are rented from the summer. We’re here after the summer, at least as far as tourism goes (Labor Day is the traditional end), and that’s fine with me. Fewer people (which means fewer kids) and a full week of relaxing.
