What A Difference

Hurricane Sandy is making an impact but could be much worse due to its size and I for one feel very fortunate because this could very well be a Category 2 or higher hurricane which would have made this a much more destructive storm than what it is….not to say Sandy isn’t doing any damage at the size it is.
The photos above were taken one week ago at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront at 9th street.

These were taken today, same area.

They were taken in the morning around the same time, about 8:30.

What a difference. 
This is a short video I shot while taking the pictures.

Sunday Morning Ride

It’s really been hot the past few days and I had decided not to ride my bike. Today it’s a bit cooler in the mornings, which I prefer to ride, so off I go.

This is my first pit stop along the way.

This is Town Center of Virginia Beach. It’s a nice area with places to eat, areas to sit outside and enjoy the view or your company. It can get pretty busy here.

Here I arrive at my destination…Mount Trashmore. For those who don’t know, it is a landfill converted into a park…a rather nice one at that.

This is the Mount Trashmore emblem located at the top of the hill. You can find kite flyers here during windy times. Lots of people use the hill for working out. The guy on the left for example is walking backward down the hill. Some jog all the way around the top instead of using the path.

I’m not sure if they are together, but backward they go.

Of course we can’t forget the children who want to enjoy the play area before the sweltering heat sets in.

Here I have my stuff set up after the ride around the park after arriving, preparing for this post. It is a really nice breeze blowing to help squash the heat. I’m gonna be heading back after I post this. It’s about fifteen miles round trip. This is my second trek here since I got the bike.

Time to head back….

i am

i am here
i am there
i am everywhere

i am not seen
but you see me 
the effects i create

it does not matter the season
it does not matter the year
it does not matter at all

i make you happy
i make you sad
i cause you to gasp

waters, be still
waters, be still not

you know me, what i am
you know me, what i do
you cannot do without me

i am a friend to you
i am a problem

i am at peace
i am vicious

times i am gentle
times i am blusterous
times i am not

still you cannot do without me
love me, hate me
i will never leave
