Just a Day at the Beach

The days have been quite the same here at the beach–wake up, breakfast, beach, lunch on beach, dinner and hitting a few bars–so I really had nothing to say yesterday.

Saturday night we visited Lucy the Elephant. Lucy is a giant elephant in Margate that used to be a hotel and now is a major tourist attraction down here.

Yesterday we got pizza delivered to the beach.

(It’s really crowded.)

For dinner, we went to an Italian seafood place on the water called Baia. I started with a limoncello drink with limoncello and vodka. It was both sweet and strong, which is a sort of weird combination, if you ask me. I couldn’t drink more than one of these.

So for dinner, I switched to wine.

I usually can’t resist gnocchi or scallops on a menu, so when I saw both in one dish, I had to get it.

After dinner, we all headed out to the deck of the restaurant to hang out.

Not really the greatest pic, but I loved the little sparkling lights.

I would like my hair to do that without ocean water. (Or to just move to the ocean. Either would be great.)

Today’s beach lunch delivery was from a placed called Matteo’s, and I got a lobster roll. I felt kind of bad for the lobster and the lobster family he left eating it on the beach.

Since I’ve been here, I haven’t had many vegetables and I haven’t eaten very healthily, but my stomach seems to have calmed down. I don’t understand, but I’m going with it. Back to the beach!

    To get the beachy hair….try bumble & bumble surf spray. I love it for the wavy beach look but not an everyday product for me since it feels like it dries out my hair. I just use it on the weekends.

      I’ve tried it, but it just doesn’t seem to work as well away from salt water. Maybe I’ll try again…

    I have stomach troubles as well, and I know it sounds ridiculous, but often greasy, unhealthy meals go down the best. In fact, when I have really bad flare ups and can barely keep things down for days, my “recovery meal” is usually a McDonald’s Chicken Nugget meal. Disgusting, but does the trick and it’s never made me sick. Once I’m ready for the nuggets, I know it’s back to real food for me…

      @Sarah: I hold a (not-so) secret place in my heart for Chicken McNuggets. Strangely enough, when my stomach is upset, stuff like french fries and chicken fingers do well for me, too.
