Attitude

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

If you have a bratty attitude at the beach, does that mean you're some kind of awful person? Haha!

I hate to say it, but this place is not worth the 9+ hour drive. The house is okay, but we are about a half mile from the ocean. Half mile, you say, that is nothing- stop your whining! Yes, a straight, unencumbered half mile would be easy as pie (and I promise I wouldn't complain!), but this half mile is filled with murky marshy alligator-prime real estate, not to mention prehistoric-sized mosquitos and biting bugs (they attack us, even after bug spray!), plus very tall protected dunes. Due to the overgrowth, we can't even see the ocean! SO. I have only been to the beach once this week, and have instead been hanging out at the pool....which I could have done in my own backyard without driving 600-something miles..... not to mention, the beach here is very weird...there are no waves! Literally, no crashing surf or anything...it is more like the shore of a lake. Needless to say, we don't vote to come back here next year! I don't think it'd be a good idea to take a 2 month old baby on a huge long road trip, do you? Hahahaha....

Mr. A and I have taken some fun motorcycle rides, though, so that has really been fun. We have also had a nice time hanging out at the pool, and dinners with his family are always hilarious. We have also gotten some good sleep/naps in. I am about halfway through Anna Karenina, and it has been a great read!

I'll try to post some photos, but they're not going to be the breathtaking beach ones I got last year! Oh well- I can show you the pool B-)

I LOVE Anna Karenina! I love how his characters are so real with so much depth...

Enjoy the book and time of rest -- although I'm sorry the beach isn't nice :(

Dude, you're on vacation, and you're reading a MAJOR book. I am seriously impressed.

Ugg! I hate the beach! After a few years in FL I was done with it. All that sand and salt water. But I'm sad that you're trip location wasn't that great. Hope the rest of the trip gets better!
