Sunday was a beautiful fall day with bright sunny skies and air temperatures in the 50s. There was just one little problem. That pesky 40-knot northwest wind that had gale warnings up in the ocean and small craft advisories up for the bay. I did take a ride just to get out of the house and I can vouch for the fact that no one was fishing at Roosevelt Inlet or Indian River Inlet and no boats left the dock.
