Guess where we went. Guess! Nope, guess again.

Not Block Island.

Not Woods Hole, either, but good guess.  Where is Louis Sachar?

Don't bother asking Annie.   

I asked for her toe to provide perspective.  This was the second picture, because she wanted me to get her good toe.  What are these things?

Looking north.  There's a special sciencey way I know that.


Romeo and Juliet.  Here's a poem I wrote about them:

Limulus, limuli 
economic stimuli
your best bet is to head out with the tide.

Trying to tell us something.  Here's a poem I wrote about them:
Red flag at dawn:
Swim trunks go on.
Purple at night:
Speedo's too tight.

Seriously.  WHAT THE HECK?  Here's a poem I wrote about it:
Here's a hole without any sand in.
Don't expect me to stick my hand in.

Here's some beach art for you:
Art nourishes the soul
like pie nourishes the pie hole.

We drove through Penney Farms.  J.C. Penney wanted a town to be used as a big retirement village, or something.

We just dropped off the coupon and left.

This video is so great I could listen to it for five seconds.  So could you.

Pin It

I cant explain it,don't know why, your poetry is so goofy I want to cry....or burp or, gotta run....

Carolyn said...

aw man? ... wanna go... your poetry is well... this is old but Annie's foot brought it to mind and even with rolled eyes and sighs of exasperation that I know will it will incur... I must repeat it here. I just must.

"You're a poet and don't know it but your feet show it. They're longfellows"...

I especially like Romeo and Juliet


Levonne said...

Are those clam holes? If I had to guess, it would seem you haven't been to the warm, beautiful ocean in a while (smiles).

The Good Luck Duck said...

Helen, I know, right? It's very moving.

Carolyn, my mom used to say that to me. She still would if I gave her a chance.

Levonne, really clam holes? You would be right - it's been too, too long. I want to go to the beach every day until I get tired of it.

Now, THAT's my kinda beach. Just the right amount of human-to-beach ratio.

Brenda A. said...

The art/pie hole one just became my quote of the day on facebook. I hope you feel honored. :)

The Good Luck Duck said...

Nina, it even made us think of you! I would have stayed all night if Annie would have heard of such a thing.

Brenda, I'm very honored! Here's a poem I wrote about it ...

Rubye Jack said...

Sorry, but what the heck are those armadillo like things with tails?

The beach is beautiful, and it's amazing you have so much of it to yourselves.

The Good Luck Duck said...

Weird and wonderful, aren't they? They're horseshoe crabs.

I don't think I've ever been on such a deserted beach in my life. It was a thick slice.

Donna K said...

Best laugh of the night...

lesliewhozit said...

I can't remember ever seeing that much beach with no one on it!! The two chairs there, just you two, wow that looks awesome.

So, I googled Anastasia Island, you are back on the east side of Fla?

The Good Luck Duck said...

We're still parked in Lake City, with departure (ohpleaseohpleaseohplease) no later than October 27 (we're waiting on a course we want to take).

Gaelyn said...

The ocean's roar
what more to ask for
a beach for two
whootie who.

George and Suzie Yates said...

No matter how you say it the beach is awesome!

Soaring Sun said...

I love your poetry. If you ever...whoops, I mean WHEN you leave Florida and come out my way, I hope you'll share your work at the Second Sunday Poets Circle here in Truth or Consequences. You would be a valued addition.

The Good Luck Duck said...

*claps for Gaelyn*

The beach is awesome. I had forgotten just how good it makes me feel.

Wow, Sue. You forgot the irony quotes: You would be a "valued addition." Hey! We ARE leaving Florida, although the beach makes it a teensy bit harder.

Carolyn said...

They're crab holes.

You're nerdy limulus poetry is awesome!

Janie and John said...

Don't know if I like the pie hole or speedo poem the best. Both made me giggle like a little girl. Thanks. :)

The Good Luck Duck said...

Crab holes! Okay, thanks - that makes sense. And, thanks. I'm glad the nerdly has an audience.

J&J, my pleasure. I wish I could have heard the girly giggle.

Contessa said...

So glad you got rid of "the coupon"!!!

My weiners love to dig up those holes.

The Good Luck Duck said...

I'll bet they do, Contessa! They must smell a seafood dinner - do they ever get a snappy surprise?

TexCyn said...

Aha, yo changed your comment format! I must do that too! This owrks mbeter...oh crap, it seems to have messed up my tyoping. Keyboard, yes, that's got to be it. ;-)
And yes, I vote crab holes. We gots 'em in texAss too. So work your way through the coastline & come here to see more! I'll meet up with ya'll too!I made a poem up, but forgot it by the time I was doen typoing...

Sherry said...

Don't leave Florida I'll be down there by January.

I love this beach. Deserted is my FAVORITE kind. I want to stay there forever and ever. Just like Romeo and Juliet! Can you write a poem about that??? PLEASE!

squawmama said...

Thought you were going to say you followed me down here ~ LOL
Sorry that hole is a crab hole.... Loved the pictures and the poems. Looked like a day full of funtastic things!
Have fun

OK, five seconds of the ocean just was not enough to satisfy a girl from a state that starts with a vowel! I want more, more, more!

Phallic art is usually welcome, too, although the representation cannot hold a candle to the real thing. (did a nice grandmother from IL just say that? Oh, my!)

Hold on! It's possible that I am losing my anonymity. Google is allowing me to preview!!!!!


The Good Luck Duck said...

Okay, Sherry, if you say so!

Romeo and Juliet were less enthusiastic than Sherry.
How much does she love the beach? Very!

LG and Cyn, I was hoping this new format would do something for you. I read somewhere that it has fewer authentication problems.

Two more votes for crab holes! Is it the wine, or does that sound pornographic?

Donna, do NOT tell me you were there the same day. Video, or it didn't happen.

LG, if you see phallic art on this blog, it has been hacked. However, I'm willing to make an exception for you if something really STANDS OUT.

¡Vizcacha! said...

HAHAHAHA! I just looked at the beach art again, LG. It wasn't like that when I took its picture, I SWEAR.

LG61820 said...

Perhaps phallic art is only in the eye of the beholder! LG
