When we awoke the sounds of rain was beating on the roof and winds sounded like it was blowing through the house. We were disappointed but decided this would not deter our plans and set off on the hour drive. Upon our arrival, luckily, the rain had let up and winds had subsided. We bundled up in our rain gear and ventured out along the boardwalk.
It was evident there was a major storm off shore as the ocean’s waves were pounding the coastline. Apparently this makes it the perfect day for the Coast Guard to practice maneuvers. I was getting sea sick just watching.
