Nothing brings out the beach bunny in me like 98 degrees, 10 mph wind and dogs in the surf. I had so much fun. The only blight on the day was the teenagers next too us. They weren't noisy, they weren't rude, they weren't drinking alcoholic beverages. So what is the problemo???
Stupido~~!!!! They took a huge floaty Star shaped toy out...with 5 teenagers. A wave knocked them off of it...and they got pulled out by the rip-tide. I called 911, and a 24 year old guy nearly drowned getting them back to shore. I will say, our shore-patrol, EMS, Constables and all showed up very quickly...but if that 24 year old had not went ourt they would have been pulling out 5 bodies. Two of the teens could swim....they were able to help the two girls back to the Star...but they were exhaused. The 24 year old pulled them all out....then had to be carried out of the shallow water. I had them put him on his side in recovery position...and yes, he was puking sea-water up! The EMS basically checked his 02 sat's. He refused to go to the hospital...just needed to rest...he was having really bad cramps from swimming.
The teens stayed about 30 minutes, then left. They left their huge Star Shaped "toy" floater...guess they didn't want it anymore. We let the air out and brought it home. It will be perfect to take to the bay-side where there is almost no waves...and no rip's or under-tow.
Now I'm sunburned and waiting on the smoker to finish the meat. We stopped at the fruit stand and bought canalopes, watermelon, tomatoes, cilantro, cucumbers and blackberries. I've already made the pico-de-gio and I'm ready to dig in!
