Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Yesterday, heavy fog drifted in early in the a.m. Then, by midday it warmed up to 75 degrees!!! Even tho it's been wintry around here [for coastal areas in the South, anything below 40 degrees with the windchill off the sea factored in...it's downright BRRRR!!]. Once the sun shines, it warms up nicely after a 'frosty' night [yes, it DID dip to freezing a few days ago, and the tops of ALL my hibiscus and bougainvillea were frostbitten], and the grasses are still tinged with green here and there; year 'round. Nearly every day, well, at least once a week, I always end up driving downtown, near the bay to do my walking. Perhaps some would think I'm wasting time, but the beauty of the bay calls me back, constantly. I just love the atmosphere on the seawall, and along Ocean Drive with the views of the water on one side, along with parks scattered here and there....and on the other side of the boulevard, beautiful homes that are farther from downtown and the cityscape you'd find nearer to the Marina... the other day we walked the Cole Park walkway and went out on the fishing pier even with the biting wind, the sun kept our hearts warm...and we watched the world go by [use mouseover for photo captions]---
