Re: Scared Of the Dark ....
I got caught out at the False Hook one night, as a very thick fog sneaked in behind me. The night had been moonless to begin with. I had my truck back at North Beach, about a mile away. Tried walking the surf edge for a while but the fog never gave me a hint when to turn east. So I just turned east anyway and pushed on until I ran into dune grass, eventually finding my way back. So concentrated was my eyesight at exactly where my footfall was going that a rabbit sitting right on the path bolted just as I was about to catch sight of him. Close to pooped in waders moment.
Luckily for me I'm not afraid of the dark at all, unless there are monsters around !
