They were on the deck next to and slightly below us that never had visitors. That was nice for us and privacy but not so great for the economy. On the other hand we were there the week leading up to Memorial Day weekend so I'm sure people were there just after we left. I loved looking down at them every day.
For my birthday I had asked Mom for a game for the beach and some sidewalk chalks. We drew goofy phrases and pictures on the railings around the deck:
Every once in a while someone would lean against the "drawings" and then walk around with a word or two on their butt.
This is my sand cat. He was being reclaimed by the sea when I took this picture:
Below is a picture of Mom and me. Notice how the water looks almost like the Caribbean that day:
And then a few days later it was totally grey:
Also in the above picture, notice how high the water is against the pier. It was crazy. I made a movie that I will show later. I had never seen the water that high. That was on Tuesday, the 25th, which I call "Tidesday". It was caused by a combination of a tropical depression and the full moon. The surfers loved it, but I wasn't crazy about it.
I have some more pictures and the story of the trip, but I didn't want to have a giant long post. Plus, I think I'm kinda blue to be back home in the oppressive heat (10° above normal) after such a great trip. I'll say again for not the first or last time, I had a wonderful vacation and loved almost every single minute of it.
