I had a great weekend and am looking forward to the week. I spent the weekend checking out 'Wastin Away', a large houseyacht I'm thinking of buying and living on. It is a beautiful boat and is quite large with many amenities of home. I went down with my cousin, who is great with electrical, plumbing, and mechanical work, to check the boat over thoroughly. It was a beautiful weekend and we had fun, but didn't get as much done as we had intended.
We went to the two bars located within a few hundred yards away and made some new friends. The first one, Beaver Creek, made us laugh because of the name. It was a private membership only, but I hate having to buy memberships at a bar where you'll spend money and talked my way through. The owner, Ike, was an older gentleman with gray hair and a gray beard. He seemed very friendly and let us through with no problem. We enjoyed the bar and had a great time and talked to Ike a little more about the area and things to do there. From there, we went to The Flamingo, a bar across the waterway, and ended up buying a membership there...(it was only 5 bucks) We learned that the two places were similar, but The Flamingo had a few more bikers there and was a little wilder than Beaver Creek...or it seemed so to us.
Only time will tell. Change is the one thing that is constant. The hardest part about life is making decisions of change and wondering if you're doing the right thing. It is truly hard to figure out...but I resort back to the Zen Philosophy for a little comfort and let time be on my side. I'll check all the systems on the boat thoroughly before making the decision and think about this change in lifestyles while doing so...and as the Zen Master always says...."we shall see..."
