I’m back from a very fun-filled fourth. We went up to our friends place in Maine. It’s right on the water, and quite gorgeous. There were well over 30 people joining in on the lakeside fun. So a tent city was born!
We had a lot of fun lounging in the lake, and drinking by the fire. Andy I bought some beach loungers for the water. I ended up only using his lounger. I guess I will save my stingray floaty for another time. We did a ton of things by the lake, but most notably was the Beerlympics.
I decided to be a spectator, because I hate chugging beer. Each event pretty much involved chugging 1-2 beers. I did chug 2 beers for Andy’s team. Spectators could chug beers to give points to another team. We each had a limit of 3, but I only gave 2. As I said, I’m no frat-boy, so chugging 2 beers was the best I could do. They made shirts to commemorate the event, I guess it’s been going on for 12 years now. Wow! I will cherish mine forever.
I found the small town very charming. The locals were very nice. We went out for ice cream, groceries, and donuts. I totally bought a flamingo egg at the grocery store. It’s a kids toy that you put in water. Eventually the egg will crack and a flamingo will grow. Stay tuned to see how long my flamingo takes to hatch.
