The beach weather hasn’t been optimal lately, but for some reason I find myself lingering and putting off starting for home. It won’t be a “long” linger, but I’m enjoying it for the time being. The marine layer hasn’t burned off for a couple of days, and the wind has made the waves somewhat wild.
I watch the beach from my “RV perch,” rather that stroll along the edges – thinking about choices I’ve made recently and voraciously reading novels. One decision that I’ve finally come to is that I will not allow myself to be in an abusive relationship. At one time in my life, I allowed that to happen – psychological and verbal abuse to be exact. No more – I’m worth so much more than that. I’ve found my “voice” and have recently told two individuals that they can be kind and respectful to me or “there’s the door.”
As a former educator, I found myself frequently in positions where I had to “make nice” and placate people – even though they were being rude and unreasonable. I don’t have to do that anymore. At any rate, enough of this talk – I’m moving on.
Sunday, there was a nice fireworks display from the beach. I “dusted off” my DSLR and tripod and gave it a go. I’m somewhat pleased with the results.
This coming weekend there’s a gay pride festival here at the casino. I think I’ll go to the comedy show Friday and I certainly want to photograph the “dykes on bikes” ride on Saturday.
I suppose I’ll mosey on home directly…
