Bubba lived directly on the ocean for about ten years a few miles south of San Francisco in an area with the romantic name of "Devil's Slide" . Bubba could sit on his front porch and watch the magnificent breakers and see the Farallon Islands in the distance. The only difference between my beach and yours is that instead of beer and bare chest it was brandy and heavy jacket.
However, Bubba did grow up near the Redneck Riviera of South Alabama and Northwest Florida, a place with incredibly beautiful beaches and crystalline aquamarine waters. Bubba has a great appreciation of Gulf breezes and knows what happens bug-wise when they stop. Bubba's fondest memories include ice cold beer (Alabama 5.0% brew, not that Florida near beer junk) and the beach at Destin.
But surely you do not put Bubba in the same category as the usual uptight Lake Chapala gringo. If I were sharing a few brews with you and Wendy and Arbon on the beach at Barra de Navidad while downing a fresh fish taco, it would only add to the general merriment. Despite my occasionally obnoxious postings, I am actually a nice person - more or less, sometimes.
