Well, the weather patterns changed and it has been about 25F cooler in recent days than it was over the weekend. With the change we've had near constant cloud cover and fog, as the rains approached. Love it when that warm gulf air meets a northern cold front. We've strolled the beaches, hunkered down a bit and I've been doing what I call "non-productive" work. That is work that generally doesn't generate income. These efforts include volunteer effort, blogging, reading financial and retirement articles, and doing business overhead matters. Never a dull moment.
The cooler weather has been pleasant, but with it the humidity has increased dramatically. The mosquitoes love this. We find that walking along the lake is a great escape, as the westerly breezes blow the little suckers inland. At the beach there is a bug free zone and those that do migrate toward the shore are tasty treats for the many swallows who constantly clean up the skies. At the pond we have dragonflies who carry out the same duties. In the past week I think I got one bite, which really isn't all that bad. We haven't had to use repellent yet this year.
Most of my internet related work is accomplished using a Verizon jetpack. It is not uncommon for campground internet to be intermittent. We've discovered this all over the U.S. So we use it when available and if it isn't, then out comes the jetpack. The jetpack is how I'm able to do this blog, upload videos, etc. If not for it, I'd be limited to email. In fact, yesterday I edited and uploaded the HOA newsletter. Not possible if not for the jetpack.

We also visited a nearby state park and it too was quiet. But there are always a few who simply come here to relax.
