The Gulf Orange Beach, AL
Sunlight mornings. Easy readings. Cut cantaloupe. Nina makes grits. Insta post. Waiting for everyone to wake up. Bacon on a grill. Breakfast. Congee thoughts. Day plans. Not enough time to take the boat out. Slowly getting ready. Moses finds his wallet. Not enough time to take out the boat. A drive to the Gulf. Infused vodka. Bloody mary's. Getting carded. Sweating cups. Kids jumping inflatable chairs. Reading underneath the umbrella. Nowhere to jump in the water. Watching boats go by. Accident on the road. Stalled cars. Jerry wants oysters. Heading out. Brief dip in a new beach. Smelly bathroom. Sunscreen all over. Shallow waters. Trying to float in the sea. Cooled down. Washing off the salt. Towel changing. Jerry's in the shade. Blalock Seafood & Specialty Market. Grabbing shrimp. Pickled quail eggs. Back at the boat. Preparing dinner. Salad. Bread. Pickles. Shrimp. Salt and lemon in my wound. Packing up. Counting items. Quick coffee before we leave. No where to park. Moses watches the car. On the road again. Hilary vs Trump. Pride as a deadly sin. Norah Jones. Regina Spektor. Social anxiety. Family discussions. Nina has a good sense of direction. Switching off. Cottondale. Seeing the kids. Marietta. Shower. Kids argue over sleeping arrangements. Tour in the dark. Turkey sandwiches. Being bitten. Jerry's cognac.
