Spent Friday at the beach...
Got a room at the beach Friday night, just wanted to be able to party and not have to worry about driving.
Friday afternoon a nasty storm rolled across the area and I got these pictures from my balcony window.
The rain came with this and it didn't stop until around 9 PM.
I love waking up to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach and seeing a beautiful sunrise. You know, if it wasn't for all the tourists, the Beach wouldn't be a bad place to go!!! I'm kidding! Really!
I wanted you to see this last picture. We were on the sixth floor. That's at least 60 feet off the ground and I could barely see Chesapeake Light. Chesapeake Light is a light house that's 13 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach. From the beach it's pretty difficult to see. Keep in mind that I was using a 300mm lens on a digital SLR camera. Not some cheap little box camera.
Oil drilling would take place even farther out than this. Outside the boating and shipping channels. The sunrise pictures should be showing the same thing, but like I said, sometimes you can't see the lighthouse.
So there's another Sierra Club bogus argument on drilling off the coast debunked right here. But hey, wouldn't that sunrise look cool with a bunch of windmills in front of it???
