Well, there's something you don't see every day...

An empty beach parking lot...

We took some stuff to the animal rescue thrift shop on the island.  Another moderately yucky day (technical meteorological term).  We made a drive by the beach at the county park, then had lunch at Pier 19.  This is the first time I recall not seeing a single car in the beach parking.  Well, at least in a very long time.  Surprisingly, the water coming onto the beach was not terribly churned up.

Not many people out and about.  We found several restaurants were closed.  Between now and Christmas is probably the deadest time on the island... the winter visitors are not here, yet... and when the weather is cold, wet, and windy, the locals don't come out.

This is another typical norther - probably going to be a 3-day event; light rain/drizzle, and daytime highs in the 50s, maybe getting to 60º.  Average daytime highs should be comfortably into the 70s.  Today we had - dare I say it - a "sunbreak": one of those Pacific Northwest phenomenons where the sun shows itself for 30 seconds or so.  It isn't enough.  ;-)
