Another day in paradise

Today we looked at houses (surprise) and then we floated down the river. This sounds easy but it is actually some work, and you run the risk of getting tossed off the edge of the boat (like I did) when you hit a rock. Some things got wet, but not like last year when it took two days to dry out the camera and cell phone.

It takes about 2 hours, and it is a great way to relax and get wet. Plus there are numerous opportunities for people watching, usually shapely drunk people in their 20's, wet, and cavorting in bathing suits. Yes, I know it sounds boring.

One house we looked at has an absolutely stupendous location (private beach for 31 houses on a single one way loop road on the lake side of the highway) and needs massive style upgrading, but is structurally sound. It is the ugliest house in the development (good) and nearby houses are selling in the low to mid 900's. Problem is they want 749K for it and we'd have to flip it in less than a year to make the deal worthwhile. We could potentially make some real money, but only with lots of real work and some real risk.

Last night at 2:30 in the AM we got a call from Sharon's brother informng us that the Perseid metor shower was in full swing and awesome. So we got up and put on some clothes and went outside. Of course we saw nothing. We have requested a refund.

In a few minutes we are going to Gar Woods restaurant where they have yummy food, and a drink called the Wet Woodie. (Really, it's all about boats!)

Yes. It is a living hell. And I don't even believe in hell.
