It was a bit dreary again the next morning, so we had a lazy breakfast and coffee at the house. I've been getting back into running again lately (I actually have a running coach now - more on that in a later post), so I wanted to get a couple miles in while I had the chance.
It's not often you get to run on a beach, so we took advantage of that and ran down toward the fort, stopping to grab a couple sand dollars along the way.
It was such a nice run that we kept going a bit further than I originally planned. We ran around the bend in the road up to where the other fort is on the hill.
We didn't actually run up to the other fort because it's full of mosquitoes, but we did take a few minutes to enjoy the view before heading back toward the house.
It never really cleared up on the run, which wasn't too bad. It was pretty humid, but at least it wasn't hot!
This was the view for most of the second half of the run. It was pretty cool; the fog hid most of the beach, but you could still hear the waves rolling in. We made it back to the house with a little over three miles total for the run and took quick showers before heading back out.
We were pretty hungry and decided to walk back down to Percy's for lunch. We managed to get the timing just right with the tide and found a ton of sand dollars along the way.
We spent so much time looking for sand dollars that I was starving by the time we got to Percy's. Turns out they make a mean crabmeat quesadilla...it was really good and I inhaled it! We made sure to grab some more ice cream for dessert, too.
