Those sunrise pics are amazing! Was the beach pretty much deserted?

The swarming ant pic would creep me out more if they were shown swarming my bed and my pillow :lol:

Yeah, those look like fire ants. Terminate with extreme prejudice.

Pretty much. There was one guy on a beach blanket with his dog, one guy sitting on the sea wall down by the boat club, and another guy with a camera in the other direction, and then a couple of women jogging.

Wait for the nightmares. :lol:

Thank you. I should do that. I've been neglecting my store and my deviantArt account for a long time.

She did. I was standing next to her as she blasted them and I was starting to feel a bit woozy myself. :lol:

I'm happy to report that my first Hydrox cookie since the 1970s passed the taste test with flying colors. Somehow they're better than Oreos and I'm not sure why. Thanks for that Amazon link, RJ.

Nice! Not sure about the banana combo, though. :lol:

It's hard to pin down why they're better than Oreos. I think the cookie part is more solid, and both the cookie and stuffing seem to have more zing in their flavor.

I really do want to do a blind taste test similar to the coke-pepsi challenge. I'm surprised we haven't seen this on TV yet.

That would be good for Hydrox, because I don't think many people know they're alive. :lol:

There's a thought. We haven't seen Jumbo in a while. And he's hard to miss.

Pretty sweet. Is that a barge of some kind out there?

A couple more days, yes. A few of my friends with asthma have had some issues, but I've been fine.

It's actually a partially eaten Hydrox cookie :yum: Actually, I have no idea what that thing is. A pretty weird looking barge I guess.

At first I couldn't tell if it was a barge or a skyline. I guess the most likely explanation is that it's a magical island city that only appears once every thousand years.

"Saharan Sunrise" sounds like a cocktail. :cocktail: :lol:

Great shots. Another batch that deserve postcards.

Also those birds might be cormorants.

They flew over my head at the beach, so I assumed seagulls. There goes my 80s band reference. On the bright side, you've given me another funny substitute name for Chronicoms this week. :lol:

Good pics, RJ. Not quite as red as Virginia's sunrise pics, so maybe you had less dust?

Thank you. :) I guess the sand drifted South. Or maybe the rain took it out of the clouds or something.
