1 year anniversary vacation recap and highlights

  • Dugan's Pizza
  • Deer just outside our hotel balcony in the beach grass
  • Casino


  • Sunburn
  • Horseback riding on the beach
  • Nap
  • Pool. No thanks on the hot tub - some kid puked in it.
  • Sunset happy hour
  • Mexican food
  • Poker at the Porthole Pub with locals like Shorty, Spud and some guy who announces he's too stoned to deal. No Shorty, I will not pay you $200 to burn yourself with a cigarette. Thanks for asking though - you never know.
  • 3 am lunar eclipse - watched it on the beach with wine
  • Teenagers with a bonfire watching the eclipse too


  • Putt-putt golf - DK wins by a landslide
  • Bumper boats - splashing DK
  • Arcade
  • Paid 300 tickets for a 400 ticket prize. (The new poker championship necklace.)
  • Poker tournament at the casino. I took 2 or 3 people out. Got 4th place. Busted out with A, Q by a 4, 2 - both off suit.
  • Playing blackjack with a Ted Bundy look-a-like next to me. Freaked me out!
  • Ate at the Emily's the casino restaurant. Yummy. Purple broccoli and yellow cauliflower.


  • Gym (Yes, I went.)
  • Beach
  • Nap
  • Law & Order
  • Red Sox game
  • At Waves for dinner. About half the people in the restaurant are kids. One old dude in the bar. At first, the bar TV has Jeopardy playing. Then I look over and it's got dancing girls in thongs on. Nice. A second later a big booming voice from the TV says: "Fuck that motherfucking bitch, shit!" The old drunk dude had turned on some cable comedy special. The waiter goes RUNNING!
  • Bowling - I BOWLED A 165 - NO JOKE - I EVEN HAVE THE PRINT OUT! My best score ever!
  • DK beats me in pool and air hockey


  • Breakfast at Mr. B's
  • Ferry to Westport
  • Sea lion eating tuna scraps
  • Harbor seals popping up
  • Gym
  • Law & Order
  • Mexican food again. (Hey - it's vacation!)
  • Cadillac Jack's for drinks. Extremely bad karaoke singers. "She thinks my tractor's sexy" on repeat. Time to jettison the pod.
  • On to the Porthole Pub. Amazing karaoke singers. Darts, videogames.


  • Broken toilet - repair man.
  • Gym
  • Rain = movie
  • Relax
  • Poker = very bad
  • Blackjack - even by the end of the night
  • Nacho dinner at 1 am


  • Late checkout
  • Pack
  • Drive home

Photos and more details to follow!

The end!
