As many of you know, it’s been hot lately. So what better idea, than taking a speed boat out on the water for a few hours? We put 60 gallons of gas in the boat, put in at Long Beach, then set out for Palos Verde. We continue on, a total of 35 miles to Marina Del Rey. We cruise around the bay a little (my first time there), then we head back…. right into a small squall. Lightening off to the east, over Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach. We had some good rain, which hitting you in the face at 30mph isn’t too much fun. Good thing I had my sun glasses of course. Closest the lightening came was about 5 or 7 seconds of delay for the thunder, but it was a good size boom just the same.
The heat, I really don’t mind. But the humidity…. ugh.
There was also a flashflood alert issued for parts of the San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Mountains, and Lancaster.
