Full Day of Vacation

Iâ€™ve had a full day of it. I started the day at the beach, getting there just before 9 oâ€™clock this morning. I claimed a spot, and got lathered up with sunscreen â€“ or so I thought. I stayed seaside for nearly three hours, reading, sunbathing and relaxing. The sky turned black, practically, but only a few droplets of rain fell. It was actually refreshing. I loved listening to the waves crash and laying on the beach. It wasnâ€™t until I got back to the hotel that I realized that Iâ€™d missed a portion of my left arm, back and leg with sunscreen. I am bright red, and I look like I didnâ€™t know what I was doing (which, apparently is the case).
I came back to the hotel about noon, and got cleaned up and headed to Fairhope.
Having been told about Luluâ€™s at the scrapbook store, I decided I didnâ€™t want to miss this Gulf Shores original, so I went there for supper. I was told the wait would be about 25 minutes, but it was probably only 10 or so; it didnâ€™t seem long at all. I was sat at this huge honkinâ€™ table, even though I was by myself. I ordered a veggie burrito (without the corn, I hate corn) and it was absolutely delicious. The band playing was really good. They played oldies cover songs, and it made it a party atmosphere; I was dancinâ€™ in my seat.
I got back in my hotel room just after 7 â€“ missing only the first few minutes of the Biggest Loser.
I had debated all day about getting ice cream, and finally decided Iâ€™m on vacation, go for it So, I went to Brusterâ€™s and ended up with orange sherbet â€“ not peach frozen yogurt like Iâ€™d seen advertised. Oh, well. To me, orange sherbet is a vacation treat (my first memory of it is in Branson, Missouri when I was about five years old). I wanted to go back to the beach, but because there were too many groups of what seemed like drunk twenty-somethings, I avoided it and headed back to the hotel. My sunburn is starting to bother me, and Iâ€™m aggravated with myself for missing my arm and leg with sunscreen. Iâ€™m going to bed. Maybe itâ€™ll have turned dark by the time I wake up.
