Pacific City Flop House

When a rental house says it sleeps ten you can always plan on at least being room for 15 which of course we interpreted as “Plenty of room for 18 people, 3 dogs, 34 boards, and 24 wetsuits.”. Actually it was enough room as long as you were ok with sleeping on floor, and waiting to take a shower. Surprisingly we ended up with too much food and not enough beer.

Surf was fun at best which meant there was plenty of time for heckling from the shore, poker games, and sun bathing. One night we even decided to make the journey into the town and belly up to the bar. The Sportsman was one of two establishments in all of town that would serve drinks after 10, so you can just imagine the crowds there on a busy weekend. It was perfect people watching and listening to cover bands. We closed it down and moved on.

Next stop that night was pretty random and unexpected. While walking home we passed a home that appeared to be having a party and figured it was ok to knock on the door. Despite not knowing a single person there we were still invited in, offered beer, and asked to participate in a beer pong game. Otter and Eli agreed to play, but made them wash all the cups first to avoid contracting herpes (HSV-1) from a bunch of college kids. I vacuumed the floor.

We ended that night by going back to the house and making sure to wake everyone up. After that the rest of the trip was pretty uneventful- surfing, DVDs, Yo-yo'ing, Lorn attempt at sandboarding, poker, beer, hiking out of bounds, and grilling.
