The beach, bronchitis, and bumming

We arrived at the beach with massive hangovers from our reunion fun on Sunday evening. I had a bit of a sore throat, but I didn't let it stop me from having some fun. A little 'hair of the dog,' if you will. We enjoyed the beach for a bit, and then helped ourselves to some fresh Gumbo that Beth had prepared. (YUM!) The next morning, the sore throat was worse, but I was determined to get some sun. We went crabbing that night, and even caught a few by hand! By Tuesday, I was stuck in bed, and I remained there until Wednesday night when Mark went to get ingredients for Hot Totties. I sucked down several of those and was feeling a little better, (or at least a little buzzed) so I stayed up as long as I could. The rest of the week was filled with lots of sneezing and coughing but I made the best of it. We never did find our cannon, but Tom Collins made his rounds.
It was mostly overcast all week, so by Friday I was itching for some sun and got my wish. We stayed on the beach most of the day, and were able to get some great photos that evening. There is one of Mark that I like particularly, when he is doing a Yoga pose in the surf.

All in all, it was a good week, but I need another go at it, this time without what I believe was bronchitis. I went to the doctor on Tuesday after we got home and ended up with a Z Pack and 2 inhalers. (Yuck! Albuterol!) Mark started getting sick on the journey home, and Bill was sick on Friday before we left. Beth is now sick, and I'm not sure how Alvin and Brenda are doing, but I hope they are feeling OK.
Sorry guys! Seeing how I am still coughing, you should feel better about 3 weeks after your symptoms first occur.
Love to all!
