Blustery Week on the Beach

We stayed at Mustang Towers on Mustang Beach this week (Mustang for the bands of wild mustangs found on the island when it was first settled in the 1800s.) Its been blustery and cold on the beach with leaden skies and a gray surf all week, as you can see in the picture.

Interestingly enough, it was one of our most relaxing enjoyable timeshare weeks ever. We hunkered down in the apartment, did a lot of reading, and enjoyed cooking nice hot meals. I donned my Eskimo-like parka and cap with earmuffs each afternoon and ventured out on the beach, and though I was the only one crazy enough to be out there except for some gulls, I got in a great invigorating walk every day. It’s been a good week!
