My Blog About Greg and Max

(Malpais, Costa Rica)

I sometimes kid that I could rename “Oceanna the Boat” to “My Blog About Greg”. I imagine myself in some fanciful future reliving my sailing adventure days with a grandchild ineffectually insisting, no I really was there! Ha. Don’t get me wrong, Gregory knows how to operate a camera, but he probably has about 18 courses of action that go through his mind in a given situation before pick up a camera pops up. I can’t complain though, Gregory’s pretty face makes for nice photos, and the seemingly endless string of wild/dumb/ridiculous things he does makes for even better content.

Today though, is my blog about Greg and Max.

After Greg’s terrible night dealing with his second round of ciguatera pains, he spent the morning resting trying to bring back any sense of normalcy to his health. Max, having come from shift working up in Northern Alberta, had no problem putting his feet up and relaxing for the a.m. Come the afternoon, Greg and Max decided to take a trip to town to check the swell and test out their land legs. Upon arriving at the break, Greg and Max found mushy, unexciting waves. Due to the weak swell, and Greg’s weak self, Greg and Max didn’t do much surfing. Instead Greg and Max just headed for shore.

During Greg and Max’s town walk-about they stopped in at the bakery for a bite to eat. Well actually, Greg could still barely look at food, but Max happily dove into a delicious dish that notably did not include fish. Following their lunch, Greg and Max took a stroll along the beach, scoped the waves, and generally just looked super cool.

Because Greg – who is usually 100% on all-the-time – was operating at about 37%, his glum mood handily spread to Max. Both Greg and Max began dragging their feet and made the call to header back to Oceanna. Once back at Oceanna, Greg and Max spent the evening talking investments, letters to Congress, and long forgotten conquests of yesteryear.

Greg and Max didn’t have the best of days, though they had each other. Tomorrow’s always another day. What will Greg and Max get up to?

It may look like a game of pick up sticks, but it certainly works.

Not a bad view. Not bad at all.
