I am absolutely exhausted! We drove down to Gulf Shores for a long weekend (8 hour drive) and did the normal ritual as soon as we arrived: check in, walk to the beach to inhale the ocean, walk to the restaurant on the dock, stuff ourselves with fresh seafood and beer. But there appears to be a shrimp festival going on on the beach outside of our window, so we've spent the last several hours roaming around that. (This is after driving 8 hours). I'm going to go die now and hopefully will have energy to read my flist in the morning.
