My Adventure Story
Cabin Boy Jeff - Log - Day 7&8
Our first full day here the crew recovered from the beating we took. Lots of rest and enjoying the beautiful marina were staying in and LULU"s right next door! There isn't too much to post but here our our last two days:
-After our ten hour sleep we were ready for some twist off time. Mike and I began drinking at 3pm in LULU's.
-At 4pm we decided to wake up Jerry from his nappy and go ride some go carts along with some put-put golf. We all walked over to find that they had just closed.
-Since our fun had been spoiled temporarily, we simply called a taxi and went to dinner were we drank some more and ate some good seafood.
-We walked across the street to the Flora Bama, a famous bar down here in these parts. Half the bar is in Florida and half of it is in Alabama. At least it was until last year when Florida traded some coastline for an island. The line is now seven feet from the corner of the building and it's all in Florida. This is a bar that in my time in the great state of Alabama (Roll Tide this weekend over those nasty LSU Tigers) I spent many a evenings in drinking and watching the surf roll in from the gulf. It is a wonderful place. Don't miss it if you are ever here.
-We imortalized ourselves at the Flora Bama with a nice pen carving stating we were here, which is one of the niches of this bar. Hanging your bra above the dance floor was also but we passed on that one and so did all the other patrons on this night. We wouldn't have wanted to see that anyway. Instead, we watched a 70 year old hillbilly dance in what was a John Travolta and Elvis Presley impressionation including high kicks above his head and a towel, DANCING WITH ALL THE GIRLS! None of them could kick above their head as well as he could.
-Mike and I got Bushwacked! It's a local northern gulf drink with almost 5 shots in it with ice cream. We only had three but that was more than enough. Jerry Grey Goosed it as usual but we peeked his interest.
-We rolled in at late having pulled of a half day drink. We would pay for that the next morning.
-OK, it's the next morning and were paying for it. We grunted around the boat and finally really started moving around 2pm where we ate an early dinner. Jerry had offered to buy us Bushwackers at what point I told him that there was no way. He reminded us again at dinner and with the peer pressure of Mike getting one and even Jerry, I did to.
-We had errands of groceries, Lowe's and Radio Shack and after an hour or so we returned to the boat with the cold front pushing through.
-Jerry told me he got bushwacked (He's such a lightweight).
-We went to work on projects that included the web site, bimini, water filter, TV antenna and a final mounting of the water maker.
-The boat looks like a tornado went through it. I'm tired and think I'm coming down with a cold. Were planning on getting some miles under the keel soon but who knows. Mother Nature rules and we OBEY. I'll let you know soon.
For all of you that are gleeful of our buttkicking, well we don't really like you anyway. For the others, we Love And Miss You!
