I Guess Everything Tastes Salty To A Shark - Ken

Why did the chicken cross the road?

I guess it is because they came from all over to wake me up at 5:00 AM. Who the hell keeps roosters? There are chickens all over the place. Forget the wild pigs, I am getting concerned about poultry. So you think there are feral chickens? Should I be worried? I am sleeping with one eye open, well, only till 5:00 AM of course.

We drove into town after a leisurely breakfast and checked out the typical tourist shops. I bought a great Quicksilver fall/spring jacket at the Northshore Boardriders store. Eat your heart out Chris. 

I met a US Postal worker named Daniel and had a nice chat with him. I always like to talk to one who understands that the struggle continues when I go to strange places. Only one in uniform understands the pain and suffering we go through to keep people informed. I did that all with a straight face.

We had lunch at a place called Konos. Grilled pastrami and a chocolate shake. Mmmmm…mmmmm good.
Just a little more shopping and then back to the room for a power nap.

We went to the beach for the rest of the afternoon and I was mesmerized by the waves. They are very impressive here. The beach wasn’t terribly crowded, but very nice. The ocean is really salty here. I wonder if there is an ocean that tastes of pepper? There was a bit of a problem however. I heard some yahoo yell out “Hey, look at that whale and his blowhole!” I had him facedown eating sand before I realized that he was talking about a whale in the ocean and not me. Pretty cool to see that massive thing. 

That’s what she said.

Back to the apartment for supper and a shower. Another good, relaxing day in Paradise.…

Just saw a Gecko in the room. I don't hang out in his place, why is he here?

  1. Well first off chickens are a way of life there and many other places like Mexico, just like Starbucks in Calgary. Deal with it Buckoo or find a nice sharp axe.
    That postie could have been your twin brother from the picture I've seen.
    Glad to hear that you've evaded capture from Greenpeace so far, just keep moving.
    That Gecko in your room is considered good luck in many countries, so you shall be blessed the remainder of your trip.

    Anyway I had lots of laughs this morning from your blog, thanks Brian
