Another Sunny, Dry Weekend!

Mornin'! We're just about to have the 7th consecutive dry and sunny weekend! It's 37° in Wildwood this morning as the sun's about to cross the horizon. There's a stiff breeze in today's early dawn darkness...NW winds 10-15mph with 20mph gusts. I'd love to be on the beach, bundled in winter gear with camera in hand right now, but instead I've opted to type away wearing pj's and slippers as I sit in my toasty warm seashore cottage. Got a fire going this morning. Christmas tree is lit. I just took a batch of chocolate chip cookies out of the oven. I had just enough dough for two more cookie sheets ready to bake and why not? The aroma fits right into the ambiance. Plus, I prefer doing things when the mood strikes. It's so much more pleasurable. So, onto the'll be like sunny/partly cloudy. Temps will head into the mid-40's as the breeze more or less sticks around making it feel...I was going to say "cold", but "making it feel Christmasy" sounds much better. High tide: 11:56a.m.; Low tide:6:31p.m.; Ocean temp (believe it or not):53°; Sunset:4:40p.m. A great place to get some Christmas shopping done...Sunset Beach in Cape May! See a gorgeous winters' ( 3 more days until the winter solstice) sunset and finish your shopping in the greatest gift can't top that!

"Oh, Tannenbaum"...went through my head instantly. I'm from Bethlehem, "the Christmas City" and some of the Moravian Church songs are in German, including "O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,Your branches green delight us!
They are green when summer days are bright,
They are green when winter snow is white.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us!"(this, of course, is the translation)
