SUMMER VACATION AT THE BEACH
Cafe Thirty-A. (Elaine liked it so much that she's wearing their t-shirt!)
As it turns out, there are plenty of sharks in this area. Fortunately, the big ones tend to stay pretty far out, and there are very few big shark sightings at the beaches. However fisherman have caught some really big ones in the area, and just a couple years ago in 2005, a girl was killed by a shark just a couple miles from where we were staying.
However, it turns out that sharks were not the only thing to worry about.
And even more alarming than the jellfyish...
Portuguese Man O'War!! These things deliver a really nasty sting, occasionally even fatal! Not only that, they can still sting you long after they're dead. Needless to say we did not touch it. However, Rob poked it with a stick a couple of times - it was still squirming!
Red Bar is a hip restaurant and bar with live music, couches and very cool posters including a 3D Iron Maiden poster that Rob loved! We also got to check out William’s exhibit at the Satellite Gallery in Seaside. In addition to creating beautiful paintings, William also writes poetry with many of his pieces. Check out his website for more on his inspiring story and his artwork.
