Brian, it is not the Newfoundland Riviera. Jeffy, it is not Mexico.

Today we walked a couple miles on this beach. Saw about eight people. We met this pretty girl and she begged Wiley to take her home and...............

throw rocks and play catch. She walked with us for almost two miles.

Here's where we are staying. A couple lives on the second level and rents out two "suites".....one underneath them and the other on the second level to the left. That's where we are. Over 600 sq ft with new kitchen, internet and Direct TV. $65 per night!


Oh, Wiley is standing in the Pacific taking this pic!

Got cute women there, too. This is a good thing.


Is that skimpy little fence to keep you in, or to keep something out? Doesn't look like it would stop much of anything.

That skimpy lookin fence looks like barbed wire from my view. I guess it does it purpose and doesn't block the view. Dangerous to young children and pets though.
