HNT - Buddies At The Beach

Last Saturday Francine and Alexander and I enjoyed a day at the beach down in Port Dover (it's about an hour drive south from Hamilton on the shores of Lake Erie). We had a blast. Here's a shot of the two of us taking a break from building mud castles to snack on an apple.

Of course after seeing some of the pictures of my pasty white skin and flabby stomach, I realized that I was contributing to what I've nicknamed "visual beach pollution" -- we all know the kind of visual pollution I'm taking about. Old guys with hairy backs in speedo's with their beer bellys hanging down to their knees paint the perfect picture of that.

I've thus resolved to continue with the jogging and weight lifting regimen that I started only after leaving my last job. And if I can keep it up, maybe on my next visit I can contribute to the beach in a visually positive fashion.

If you'd like to contribute to Half-Nekkid Thursday check out Osbasso's blog for more info

I think both of you are possitive contributers of visualness...let me put it another way: you both contribute positively in a visual way. (You look fine)

Just build your sand castles with Andrew, have fun and don't worry about what you look like.

Sorry, I meant Alexander.
I must have been thinking of an old boyfriend while I was writing my comment. *LOL*

I wouldn't say that is visual beach polution, I am sure Alexander steals all of the glances anyway.

I'm still jealous, no matter what you think. Just check out my HNT picture and you'll feel a 100% better about how you look

Happy HNT sweetie ;)

Visual pollution? How did you get that idea? The two of you look very cute. And I am sure you are expert sandcastle builders.

Hey Mark!

Somehow I missed your HNT last week...this is cute!

I wouldnt worry about the flab because you look ok to me, but the pasty white skin?
