Where we waited for close to an hour to get in. But made the most of it testing out a new summer playlist I started and failed to finish on my way to Palm Springs - who's inclusion of Harry Belefonte's stomping Jump Down, Spin Around (Hayes' Favorite) had a handful of kids and Gray haired grandmothers dancing together in line. Shep and Wilder came down for a few hours too, and were immediately inducted into the wolf pack having gained Rex's early affection based simply on their willingness to listen to his long, drawn out lectures on "surf rules." And their shared interest in making sticks into swords.
All in all, a long full afternoon celebrating our favorite guy the best way we know how, in his favorite place, with new friends, bonded by a common love of sand and sea.
