OC 2012 - Day 6 - Sakura

I swore it was going to be a late start of the day.  But no, at 730, I am already walking to the beach to setup shop.  No runs the last couple of days...too hot and humid.  I stop at the corner market to pick up some bacon, mile, and soda.

Luke is coaxed out of bed by the smell of bacon.  I ask him what he wants to do..he says, lets fish.  He really knows how to twist my arm.

This day in history "On this day in 1940, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who first took office in 1933 as America's 32nd president, is nominated for an unprecedented third term. Roosevelt, a Democrat, would eventually be elected to a record four terms in office, the only U.S. president to serve more than two terms"

So we fish until almost 11am...head back and fins that nobody is ready to go to the beach.  We hit the beach late and the waves are angry this day.   The wind is blowing down the beach creating some difficult waves, and under tows..  Still hot and humid.  A couple of hours and we decide to head back early.

Dinner is off the strip, and in West Ocean City.  Sakura is a Hibachi Steak house.  We get a master chef who is very entertaining.  He asks Luke what his name is...he doesn't hear several times so proceeds to call Luke, "White Boy".  Pretty funny really.

The usual tricks are done including the volcano..the meal is very good.  We stop to get more bait on the way back to the resort.  Gavin and Krista both catch fish.  Kyle and Luke go for a swim in the pool.  Sue and I hang out in the pool area during some races and some marco polo.  We recall how Kyle and Luke would jump off the side of the pool in the deep end (5 ft) for us to catch them.  Now Luke can stand in the deep end.

This is our 10th year in a row coming to Ocean City, and Ocean High.  Great idea to buy this timeshare.  We hope to come for another 10 years.

The eve. ends with a quick passing thunderstorm.  We all watch from different vantage points as the storm approaches...We catch some of the lightening on iPhone video.  Things may be a little cooler now....80 degrees.

P.S. Cho continued to pick on Luke during the cooking and flung food and jokes his way.  He even landed some egg into his drink, and pegged him with some shrimp......
