Sand Art and Love Shacks

Every day I take pictures of iguanas. Today I saw a really beautiful one with a very red color. I got what would have been some great shots--but the lens was so fogged, they really didn't come out. This was the clearest--isn't he a great-looking lizard?
Pickle at breakfast:
After breakfast, we headed to the beach to do some "sand art."
It was really fun--you got to use seashells and sea glass and design some really pretty stuff.

Pickle did her foot print:

And here's Patrick working in his:
Isn't it cute? We're going to put it on our new screened-in porch.
After that we hit the pool for awhile:
Pickle enjoying a cocktail:
Then later, we went to what might now be my new favorite restaurant: Love Shack.
It's literally a shack in a parking lot:
First they gave us necklaces and leis and stuff:

Then the drink menu came out--the drinks at this place were incredible! Here's just one side of the drink menu:

Every drink is served in a crazy glass that you get to keep and adorned with all kinds of toys. here's Gooser with his shark glass:
And the boys with their parrot glasses:
Pickle contemplating hers:
This was my drink--the Taboo Lagoon. A prickly pear margarita and soooo good!
I also had the Funky Monkey. Wheeeeee!
We're going to need another suitcase to take home all those glasses!

Pu Pu platter! (Flaming!):
And do-it-yourself s'mores (also flaming):
I think we're going to have to go back there!!

Holy cow! I want a Funky Monkey.

I love the sand art. Makes me wonder if there's any place around here where you can do stuff like that...being right on the coast and all, like we are.

That is my favorite restaurant and I have never even been there. Anyplace with a drink called booty call is the place for me.
