Not much for sunrise.
No internet today, so I read for a while, then went out and sunned for 30-40 minutes, 'til I couldn't stand the heat. Maybe went out half a dozen times. I'm getting darker, but I do have white spots. I didn't mention this before, because it's not why I'm at this particular beach: it's a clothing optional beach. Seen a couple girls walk with no top; more sunbathing. Mostly it's guys, some of them gay. I'm thinking of dropping my shorts to tan. Ha! Ha!
So about 5pm I got a little hungry. I thought about getting a small plate of fries and a beer.
Walking along the beach, looking for a place to eat, took a couple picks of the sunset and some kids playing on the beach.
I ended up at the same restaurant that I've eaten at twice; there really isn't another decent place, only some so-so places.
As I approached the restaurant, I saw a sign saying something about a show, and I saw some speakers. Most of these things are too loud for me. But it's a little after 6pm now, and the show doesn't start 'til 8pm.
I grabbed a seat away from the action, ordered a beer and some 'papas'. Peanuts and tortilla chips (I don't eat these) on the table. My order arrives, and they're home fries: I forgot to tell them I wanted 'papas a la francesa'. That's alright, they were good. had another beer with them.
Then I kept munching on peanuts (they refilled my little dish). I was relaxing and didn't feel like heading back yet: I'd been cooped in most of the day. I ordered another beer.
One of the performers was tuning up his speakers: he had some recorded music playing, and he did a little singing. Sounded good. So I thought I might stay for the beginning of the show. I ordered my fourth beer (these days I usually only have two, 16oz). 8pm rolls around, and they're still messing around. I'm getting tired of peanuts, but I need something to go with the beer, so I order a pizza (med is all they serve).
The place filled up; and this lady from Quebec ends up next to me. She gets a drink, and then starts looking at the menu. I offered to share my pizza (even a medium is hard to finish all at one sitting, and I had no plans to take leftovers with me). She agreed, and I ordered my fifth beer.
At 9pm, the entertainment finally starts: two guys - female impersonators! The tall guy is pretty good. So I decide to stick around. The lady offers me a drink. I'm done with beer. So I order a rum and coke: they're 2 for 1!
I started taking pics, but I'm at the wrong angle: to the side and a little behind the stage. And sometimes I had to lean out around people to my right. So they're not the best pics. But they're entertaining (do the slide show thing below.)
I had another round of rum and coke. Finally, I went home. And crashed!
