    The beach bar...

    Just something to read… in the “After 5 Forum Pub”. It took me a few days to put this together. My writing skills aren’t what they used to be. After Spring Break and for the rest of the year our beach bar often reminded me of a Chameleon. It was a side gig I got involved with. From opening...
