Wondering Where the Grunion Are...

Well it is 2 am ... I should be logging on to tell wonderful tall tales about fish flopping on the beach. I looked forward to sharing the euphoria of *FINALLY* seeing the grunion. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. Big sigh.

Apparently, the grunion didn't read the webpage that announced they would be spawning on the beach between 11:00 pm and 1:30 am this morning.

On the updside I had a great time tonight celebrating my birthday and green card anniversary at the beach with friends and fellow grunion hunters. It was a beautiful, peaceful and warm (very warm!!) evening. It is so tranquil strolling on the beach in the wee hours of the morning and listening to the waves come in.

The perfect way to greet a new day.

I could have stayed all night, soaking it in, but the the practical side reminds me that it is a school night and I have to work tomorrow (ooops ... today).
