Gale Force Winds

Biking thru the dunes...


What do you call the sound the air makes as you are whizzing down a hill on a bicycle? .....Answer: Gale Force Wind. This is a great morning for our bike ride thru the dunes. Jo, Jane and I hop into punch buggie and Dennis drives to town to drop us off at Gale Force Bike Rentals to rent the bikes for our day of fun. We did come out early for this fitness excursion (thank goodness) because today is REALLY humid, hot and hazy. Off we go up and down the hills, to the Visitor's Center thru the Beech Forest and back....8 miles.


Jo's right of passage (now eligiable for her National Parks Pass):


Our "chauffeur" and Dougie pick us up and we are home in minutes. Jane hits the sun deck and dips into "the lake". The rest of us..on the porch...enjoying Jo's photos from her Tuscany trip and the beautiful Villa she rented complete with the stories from her trip to Italy, laughing with Dougie about a Bevie story and just relaxing and enjoying the view from the porch... and each other's company. One (of many) funny Bevie stories...(I will get to this later)...


Time passes and before we know it...time for our walk into town...


and....as I promised:

( as told to me by Doug)

Bevie and Doug were flying home from "somewhere" and had 2 different airline tickets...one in coach (Dougie) and one in First Class (Bevie). They have been married for a little over 10 years. Squeezed in the middle of a window and aisle seat is Dougie while Beverly is lounging next to some handsome rich guy with a yacht in First Class... sipping wine. The plane lands and Dougie starts to empty the overhead compartments of several of Beverly's carry-on bags. As he makes his way thru the plane carrying all of the bags he looks for Beverly ....she is far in the distance walking with "Mr. Yacht"....we will call him Gary. Dougie finally catches up with them and Beverly says..."Gary, this is my friend Doug"! ... Rick thought Doug should have inquired where on the yacht Gary wanted him to carry the luggage as well as his WIFE!
