We went to a rapidly dwindling beach last week, Hunting Island, SC, as is our yearly L. family wont. My parents and brother were in attendance, though RocketBro’s fiance was stuck teaching high school students drama in south Georgia that week.
There was one thing I failed to mention about the beach: Wickles.
My Uncle Mike and his wife Betty joined us for the first day, and Mike brought 2 jars of Wickles… Wicked Pickles. They are a spectacularly well-seasoned pickles. He got them in the Publix out there in S.C., but steakums couldn’t find them in our local Publix.
I may resort to ordering them online. De-lish.
Part I: Bad Advice
T-3 days until vacation at the beach.
Weather.com’s 10 day outlook for Beaufort, NC is Isolated Thunderstorms, 30-40% chance of precipitation. Highs in the mid/low 80’s, lows in the mid/low 70’s.
To me, that sounds idyllic.
I have downloaded some YouTube videos on figure drawing and converted them to MPEG to create a DVD, in the naive hope that I will have some free time to doodle.
Scout will be the issue. How to entertain a 10 month old at the beach? There are no barriers in the house per say, so it will be 7 days solid of chasing after the crawling speed demon.
What on earth are we thinking?
Act I: FSM vs. the Pumpkin
Tonight, while Stacey was at work, RocketBoy and I surfed the web for pictures of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. He’s a big fan now.
Then, he went to sleep with two pumpkins.
That’s a very sacriligous evening, I’d say.
