That was a pre-weekend bunch of fun! It has been a long time since I arrived this early to the party. First round is happily on me.

On shore! Would have normally made this much harder for myself, but I’m thinking clearly today.

On the shore! And on page 1! This was a fun one. The cabana boy says that French is too hard, and half the letters aren’t even pronounced, so what’s up with that? He’s happily taking orders, and has ordered extra Guinness.
