Got to the island around 11:30 a.m. What a beautiful ride. Parked on A dock & opened one up. Can it get much better than that? It did.
We took a semi- PIB virgin (is it possible) with us. He's been on the island but didn't go into any bars (we changed that quick). After a few beers and some butterscotch liquor, we went to the top of the monument. What a view. Too bad you can't take a cooler, we could have stayed up there for awhile. Then off to the Roundhouse to hear Paradise Island. Excellent band and lead singer. I've never been there on a week day before. Definetly a different crowd. After a couple hours went back to the boat for lunch and more to drink. Walked through the BB (noticed I said through). Our virgin wanted to see the longest bar. Walked through Mr. Eds (real nice) and Frostys and he wanted to go back to the Roundhouse (twist my arm). So, off we went. By this time everyone was up and having fun. Finished watching Paradise then went to the Crescent to listen to West Side Steve and eat. Tried to leave before the storm blew in but didn't make it. Had to wait it out (darn). Took off around 7:30. I'd say overall a good day.
Oh, and the virgin is hooked. He's coming back for Xmas!
