We started the weekend with lunch at my favorite restaurant in Flagler Beach:
What can I say? I'm just all about the fancy eating spots. The food and the view at this place cannot be beat, and it's always so busy they have mandatory valet parking. Those guys earn their money - it was packed when we got there, and I wondered where they were going to find a place for Baby.
They aren't kidding when they say it's right on the ocean:
We did have a mission for this weekend - bring Cousin C's computer and internet connection into the 21st century. She wanted a laptop, which meant adding a wireless router to the DSL connection she finally obtained about a week or two ago. Oh, and she has been buying disposable cameras, so she added a point and shoot digital camera.
And we bought these things at the Best Buy in Daytona Beach. On the 4th of July. Which is, yes, a major, major race day - one of the biggest. And where is the Best Buy located? DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE SPEEDWAY. Like, they use the shopping center parking lot for race day parking on major, major race days like the 4th; there were mobs of hot, sweaty race fans everywhere, and blocked roads and bedlam. And I'm like, oh, shit, is there a race today? Can you tell we are not NASCAR fans, and also somewhat oblivious? So yeah,
And then I installed the router and got the wireless network set up, loaded the software for the digital camera and performed some other acts of geek magic, before falling into the pool again. I miss my own pool. Murphy does not swim, but he enjoyed endlessly patrolling the pool deck, hunting lizards. He will sleep until Wednesday to recover.
Unfortunately, I have to get up and go to work tomorrow. Crap.
