Found! Thurston Howell and His wife Lovey

When you live in a small town full of old people there's not much to do on a Friday night.
Except this.
Yes, folks. We've become sunset chasers. You've heard of storm chasers? Well, uh...this is exactly the same thing. I hang perilously out of the car window yelling, "Go, Go, Gooooo! We're going to miss it!"

And then because my adrenaline is surging to the max, I may even yell some more. HURRY!!! WE"RE MISSING IT!

Mr. Wonderful puts the pedal to the metal and by golly, another sunset is conquered! And then I always always say, "look at it, isn't it GORGEOUS!" He answers, 'yeah, it looks like that every time." I  gasp in horror and disbelief at his lack of amazement and remind him that he should never, never NEVER lose his sense of childlike wonder. I glare at him. He nods his head in agreement.
All is right in the world.
That's how we spend our Friday nights.
But then, Saturday comes.

This Saturday to add a little spice to our lives we decided to go to "Pirates Cove". Aye, mateys. It's basically a small dive with live music, 100 dogs laying on the porch, and  beer, tattoos and clouds of cigarette smoke.

I'm not sure we fit in.
 With two cups of diet coke,  and a strong fake English accent, he asks, "Lovey, where's our Yacht?"
P.S. Yes, he really is THAT white. His skin repels the sun.

  It was an adventure.  Surrounded by pirates on harley's, Thurston Howell and his wife Lovey had a marvelous time.

Well I for one thought the sunset was GORGEOUS. Then again, it's the only pictures I've seen, so perhaps if I got to see the rest, i might not be nearly as impressed. But, as it stands, LOVELY!

Looks like a fun Saturday. Where is it you live, with the beach and all?

Those are beautiful photos. I want to go there.

Love the fact dogs are everywhere. There is nothing like a good boating canine to make the trip all the more interesting.

As for sunsets or the ocean for that matter no matter how many photos I take neither ceases to amaze.

In the summers, we often chase sunsets on foot - oh it's time, run to the spot you can see it! Imagine a pack of 10-20 folks jostling to get a view.
Enjoy your diet brew!

Lovey, your not going to believe this, but I been there!!!!! It's some what of a dump, local dive. But they really have great burgers, if you can stand to eat it with hundreds of dog eyes watching every bite you take.

Awesome sunsets there...

Hey Creative Style--You've been to Pirate's Cove? And you didn't invite moo-wa? You know how much I like beer and cigs...LOL! Kate I laughed picturing a cluster of people for their view of a sunset. :) Bye the way, Pirate's Cove is located in fancy shmancy Elberta, Alabama. Come on down for a visit! P.S. I'm starting a campaign to buy a really good camera...don't you agree?
