A Vacation Comedy

Ah, the first real vacation in five years! A trip to the South Florida Gulf Coast. Four of us Perry, our captain, (he paid for the house boat for a week); his fiance Julie, Georgia (a girl I knew from high school and just recently ran into again), and myself.


Beautiful weather and a great day to be on the water at the edges of the Everglades. Leisurely driving the 40' boat while the women sunned themselves on deck.

Towards sundown captain Perry directs me to a secluded horseshoe cove where we weigh anchor for the night. The tequila was flowing and I fell asleep to the sound of the gentle waves lapping against the boat.


I awake to silence. Total silence, outside of some insects and a few birds. So serene.

Too serene! Something is wrong! I jumped up and went on deck. We were beached! Nothing but thick muck all around. I could see water...about 100 yards away. Hmmm, this should really impress the women.

To be continued...

Oh NOOO. Tides in the salt marsh!

Can't wait to hear how the rising sun, rising temperatures, and increased bug activity really got the ladies motors running...

And you have about a full 8-12 hours to contemplate the tide charts. (something similar while collecting shells...) But the muck is NOT going to fill the area with a pleasant aroma soon.

Can't wait to hear Keith's description... The guy leads an interesting life with a great sense of humor.

Chapter 2 -- where are you?
