When we first learned that Kristen would be in town at a fancy hotel, our minds went to the sanctioned pool crash opportunity. But after learning that Kristen was kept busy with conference-y activities for most of her days and conference-y dinners for most of her nights, I thought it might be nice to bust her out and show her some of our local delights.
She was game!
First stop: Secret Beach ! Remember Secret Beach?
|The world's best bench|
|Cousin love! With some sketchy hobos in the background.|
|Cousin love! With a big ugly house in the background.|
When we first got there, we were distracted by a wild and unruly pack of heathen children running wild in and out of the scary cave. I judged their parents for allowing them to go into that scary cave. Kristen judged them for doing so in their jeans. The point is, we judged.
|At least they weren't in jeans. Don't judge.|
|After a little cookie haggling.|
|Cousin love, duney style|
|Cousin love, once removed|
Third and final stop: Tower Two
|Look at that sunny spot we got, front row seats for the shining followed by setting sun.We had the whole joint to ourselves!|
It seemed insufficient to just order delicious beer when Tower Two offers such a wonderfully unique yet awesome presentation of one's champers
|Heretofore dubbed the Bucket of Fun|
We were all feeling great and having fun, and the scenery before us transformed into magic
|Bringing out the inner performer in some of us|
|karate forms, shuffling, spontaneous hand to hand combat|
|um, push ups?|
And the grand finale, which I think Ellie and her Mistah will particularly enjoy:
|That's what they call a Full Boogsey|
