Sittin' on the Dock of the Gulf Watching the Clouds Drifting Away

     Sitting at Marlyn's Bar looking out over the Gulf of Mexico.  I can't help but to think of that Otis
Redding song as I watch the day and the tide drifting away.  It is a n afternoon that will lead to Karaoke at the Hurricane Hole a little later on and then back to share the night here before calling it a day.

     Today there are boys fishing from the breakwater while the rest of us sit at the bar and watch the clouds and the wind paint another beautiful picture.  Though the temperature is in the low 80's here today the winds put a certain chill to the evening.

     A month ago I would be looking at another sunset at this time of the day, but on this evening it is still bright with the clouds and the blue of the sky creating the canvas for the evening.  As always it is a great place to sit and enjoy the end of the day before heading out to the Hurricane Hole for an evening of fun and song with so many of my friends.
