ClearWater Beach


So, Scott has been good about taking me out on Friday's. We have been talking about going to the Clearwater Pier which a lot of people have told us about, so we finally headed out there on Friday. There are all sorts of street (pier) vendors, breakdancers....and this joke of an escape artist (OK, he escaped from his double straight jacket, massive amounts of chains, and was chained upside down). We really wanted to see the sunset and Scott was saying how we needed to stay far away from this guy because for some reason, they always pick him out of a crowd. Well, his back was to me and I saw the guy walking/jogging toward Scott and before I could say anything, he had Scott by the arm and walked him to the front. At first it was funny to have him up there, but then it just started taking forever...we missed the sunset!
For a second, we really thought that he was going to make Scott escape from the straight jacket...but he was only kiddin

Why is it that all escape artists/magicians always have the cheesiest/dirty jokes? I didn't really find much humor in this guy. The only thing I really thought about was "Is this really how he makes a living?" and "He needs a shower, I can see the grease in his hair"

Scott had to tie his feet up and hook him the the crane. The guy was crazy

Well, we gotta hand it to the coody...he did escape the chains and straight jackets.

The pier was so cool. There were vendors selling beads/jewlery, paintings, other little doo hickies (sp? Word?). The waves were extra big cause of Hurrican Ike.

I was going for the cheesy pose. I think that I succeeded.
