October Flowers and More

Most of the tourists have left the campground now, leaving the beach and enjoyable activities at rest.  Soon, during the first week in November, horses and mules, and donkeys will be arriving for the 32nd Annual Jack Monroe Annual Beach Ride. There will be the good aromas of leather, sweat and other equine deposits permeating the salt air. This is an annual event to raise money for the American Heart Association.

There will be dogs and hay and grain and tack, and campers, including tents and wagons here.  Most of all, fencing of all types is brought in along with vehicles and riders and exhibitors from many states. The horsemen and women and children will gather throughout the area for this worthy cause. This is the only campground in the area that allows this type of activity, and the ocean beacons their return each year.

I'll be among many, taking pictures and watching demonstrations and just having myself a great time talking with the participants. 

I'll be back soon with photos!


  1. Sorry about the email address. I am looking to see if I can find a newer one.

  2. I checked and the email address I gave you is correct.

  3. Your beach is deserted? Wow...around here we have what the locals call 'winter texans'...the people from up north tend to come here to reside for the cold months!!
