ABC Wednesday - Z is for Zapped

Z is for Zapped............

view through the old fort

Last week's post for ABC Wednesday had me going to my favorite place - the ocean.

This week's post described how I felt after about 3 hours in the hot sun - totally zapped with no energy.

We had lunch on New Castle Island, and it was still very hot - over 90 degrees in the shade.

Then I took a walk around the old fort on the island.

As soon as I stepped off the land onto the rocks behind the New Castle Lighthouse, it was like a whole new world.

The cool breeze coming off the open ocean into the harbor was so refreshing.

I sat there by myself for about an hour.

I called and texted the boys to join me because it was sooo cool, but they just couldn't leave their fishing poles.

My husband finally came over and wished he had come earlier.

The photo above was taken through one of the windows of the old fort.

It was just on the other side of that window where the coolest breezes could be found!

This is the sixth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.


  1. Are you zapped with no energy or is it just contentment from gazing through that beautiful framing towards the ocean? That scene would make me want to do nothing else but just chill right there!

  2. Heat can be exhausting, there's no doubt about it! Looks like a beautiful spot, though!!

  3. I can so relate to your experience. Even just a few yards from the water marks the difference between being comfortable or miserable!

  4. Lucky for you that you found the old fort!
