Video Post #19

Yes, I was half lit when I recorded this video post. Yes, I drank more beer in the past two days than I can remember drinking ever before in a span of two and a half days. Yes, it was the liquid courage that enabled me to be on that balcony high above the rednecks, their unwashed children and teenaged miscreants, and assorted other riff raff. Eye candy everywhere, all except for the poor unfortunate soul who resembled Sloth from The Goonies. It took everything I had not to blurt out "ROCKY ROAD!!" at the pool once the initial beer buzz kicked in - what can I say, the sauce makes me mean.

I managed to be almost mostly drunk (or at least consistently buzzed) for two days without getting into any fights, but my inner tree huger kicked in each morning when I'd go for an early beach walk and clean up all of the beercans & trash left over from the previous night's asshole litterbugs.

I'm sunburned on about 1/3 of my back from forgetting to reapply sunscreen after swimming, but it's alright. Time on the beach was great, the Gulf was warm & clear and I swam quite a bit. What I really wanted to do was swim naked, but there were far too many folks around and, well, I prefer not getting arrested on vacation. And I'll be damned if I'm getting in any more than ankle deep after dark.

The best part of it all was being there for D's first time ever swimming in the ocean, nothing will ever replace that for me. As for PCB, I'm done - don't think I'll ever be going there again. It's not what I remember, it's way too touristy, and I'm not in high school on spring break anymore. I'm thinking secluded &/or nude beaches from here on out when the urge to be near the ocean kicks up in me.
