A day at the beach
Took the top off the Rover and set off. I just love driving this truck with the roof off.
And so does Geordie.
Although we're staying on the beach, were on the inland, or lagoon side of the island, for the big surf we cross over to the gulf side. It's an awesome beach, not too many people, a huge pier with a pretty good pub on it.
Coming from Nova Scotia, I can't quite get used to driving on the beach, but here it's the norm. In fact many two wheel drive cars venture out into the sand, many get stuck, I pulled one out but didn't get any pictures, nice folks, we had a good chat.
Pat and Jess are the real beach pros, they bring their Boler trailer, it's light enough, and means we have a fully stoked bar and an outside shower. Pat's outside shower is ingenious, pressurised by compressed air it's great for a rinse off after catching a few waves on their boards.
I never have really got the beach scene right. Jess was appalled with my black socks and shoes.
So I took them off and exposed my poor white feet to the Texas sun. Now I have lobster feet,....
I must say, an afternoon in the sun, listening to the surf, chatting with passers by and enjoying a few Gin and Tonics sure hit the spot.
