Med 1 - John 0
Hey everyone, time for an update.
So today was a rough day for me. I was very burned yesterday and had a little sun poisoning I think. Needless to say it was a sleepless night and I debated buying SPF 60 today--on the bottle it specified it was for "newborn babies and retarded americans."
Instead I decided to be "that guy" on the beach and wear a shirt the whole time I was out there. It was pretty brutal, half the women on the beach weren´t wearing a top and I´m wearing a white t-shirt? At least, I suppose, I didn´t get burned any worse than I ever was.
So I speant about 3 hours on the beach today, but I wasn´t really on the beach, but rather on my float in the sea with my mom on her float. It was nice, we took out a couple of beers, sunglasses, sunblock and pretty much just camped out there for the entire time. I napped a little and hardly drifted at all.
The highlight, however, was coming back in on the raft. The Med is very peaceful for the most part, except for the first 5-10 feet where the tide breaks and the waves are quite strong, it actually is a lot like jones beach. Anyway my mom and I were coming in and I´ve got a clear shot to the beach, no little kids so I´m coasting in and this HUGE wave comes and the raft catches it, so I´m thinking I´m going to get a free ride. At that moment a little kid and his sister jump infront of me. I can´t quite explain what happened next, because I´m not exactly sure. I think I tried to jump off so that I wouldn´t hit them, but it was really right when the wave was breaking so it was all over anyway. The next thing I know Im in disaster control management mode which meant prioritizing items. Number 1 was the wallet with money in it in my back pocket. Number two was preventing my bathing suit from faling off. Number three was making sure I didn´t accidently kick the little kids. Number four was my visor, 5 was my sun glasses, but I had pretty much written them off. Anything else would be a bonus.
I ended up on my right where the waves were breaking looking up. I Grabbed my visor and thren saw my sunglasses sinking. I grabbed them and then got to shore. Then I saw the raft, which I got along with the sunblock lost at sea. Speaking of my mom, I looked over, thinking she was going to be laughing at me, but she was tumbling herself. She had an empty beer can and a book she was in charge of. She elevçcted to save the empty beer can. John Grisham is now swimming with the fishes. It was fairly comical.
So I suppose thats about it. Nice seafood dinner tonight and the bar with mom and gran for a bit. ITs close to 1:30 here so I´m headed to bed. Morning comes early with these two.
Hope all is well with you all.
