My camera died while we were out on the water yesterday, but I managed to get a few pictures while we were floating at Chicks Beach, just like we did during Memorial Day Floatopia. This time we joined in with the "main group" to try out some rum ham, many flavors of jello shots, and meet some interesting characters.
You should notice that the dude in the bottom left has a real tattoo of the Statue of Liberty. America- F yeah. I also loved the other dude's helmet, the guys riding inflatable penguins/sharks, and you can see the guys who were tossing out the rum ham to everyone. It's exactly what it seems like- ham soaked in rum. And it was delicious.
After floating all day, we did what all Americans should do on the 4th- grilled some grub. I got a new grill for my birthday so we popped that sucker's cherry. [and my friend Rob, who may have thought he was a grill master, burnt most of the food and the thermometer on my grill. It's not the 4th if you don't have a burnt hot dog, my roomie says.]
What I learned this holiday: don't believe a man when he says he knows what he's doing, soak meat in dark liquor while candy and fruit is in vodka, and if you're going to walk 2 miles, have a ride back for when your legs get jiggly.
