We’re lucky enough to spend some time at the beach this summer. A lot of people come out here to take their vacations and “let their hair down” for a week or so. I thought that it would be fun to report on some of the things that we see and hear.
Here are a couple of “early returns” –
#1 – we were on the balcony and heard some yelling. A guy in the pool had just missed being harpooned when a woman’s beach umbrella fell (or was thrown) off her balcony. She had to do some profuse apologizing.
#2 – our place has been in a rental program. We are doing some painting to spruce it up. (OK, my wife is doing the painting; I’m drinking beer, listening to Jimmy Buffett, and pontificating). When she lifted one of the air vents out to paint, she found that someone had stuffed a can in the air duct. Again, people come here to let their hair down, but when does this seem like a good idea?
The “season” really gets rolling this weekend with the Hangout music festival. We’ll see what stories the summer brings.
