Two weekends ago our friends Meghan and Jesse came down for a mini-vacation to Jesse’s parents’ beach house. They live in the D.C. metro area and so I used to try to see her when I went up to D.C. for work when I was in Florida, but the last time I saw them was in Harpers Ferry last summer while we were on the A.T.
It was nice to meet up with them and their extended families and some of their friends. Here’s a bit of what we saw:
Chris got some fishing in. He ended up with a keeper flounder, which I helped him eat a few nights later. I’ve decided if Chris catches fish then I will eat it. (Being a new vegetarian, I have eaten meat on a few minor occasions this summer. After I eat it, I enjoy it, but it doesn’t necessarily make me need it.)
The evening of the first day Chris and I went over to the beach to walk for awhile and scope the scene out. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the sargassum sign. I get so *sick* of people complaining about the Texas Gulf Coast and the sea weed and it’s trashy this and trashy that. Dude, if you leave the sargassum the beach builds up—if you don’t the beach will erode more and then you’ll spend taxpayer money siphoning sand from off shore for beach renourishment projects. Plus, I’m a weird one and love the smell of rotting sargassum.
I would love to get back on the beach in the coming months and camp for a weekend. Need to scope a place out!
