Not only did I think this day would never get here; as it approached it was fraught with obstacle after obstacle.
I was beginning to develop "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry" mentality.
Seaside, Florida is calling my name and I can hear it all the way here in Oklahoma.
Who knows what we will find when we get there. Tarballs? Hurricane winds? Hurricane winds that blow the tarballs?
My philosophy on the whole thing: We might as well go, 1. We have swam in lakes that were pretty darn dirty! 2. Go and support the folks that are scrambling to just keep any form of normalcy afloat. 3. Relish in the fact that you are a part of history!
I will be leaving in 5 hours.... I cannot wait.
I hear 'ya Seaside. I'll be there soon!
Here's to all bathing beauty queens and pristine beaches. Have a great weekend!
