Day 20 The Beachcomber

Today we are in Wellfleet, Mass. playing at the Beachcomber. It's rainy and miserable. We have two shows here until we are off to the Chicken Box. We had two amazing days in Montauk,NY which is at the end of the road so to speak on Long Island. We caught some really fun surf both days at the "ditch." I found out later as we left that Montauk is the largest breeding ground for Great Whites due to the large trash dump off shore from NYC. That may be the last time I surf there. If you ever get a chance to explore the Cape Cod coastal regions, Take your time and enjoy the coastal roads. It is beautiful place during the Summer months. The locals say winter is very depressing and long.  Bring your wallet and save your pennies. It is very pricey in the Hamptons but the seafood is great. Lobster rolls every where. I love those ocean bugs!  
     Bus life is slowly getting to us all. Wellfleet is very small and we are out on a cliff overlooking the ocean in the middle of nowhere. Which is great for those of us who the outdoor types. The only shower is outside and uncovered in the rain. And there is only one toilet with no stall door. My poor wife has been on this rolling locker room with a bunch of overgrown children that can't seem to lift the seat. There is no surf, no Starbucks, no cell service and no privacy. There is a distinct odor coming from Donavon's bunk area. I can't quite place it. It's somewhere in between death and real dirty laundry. Everyone plays the bus shuffle game in order to move around on this contraption. One person goes right as the other goes left. Anna from our management office came out for a few days and hitched a ride on the bus to experience tour life. I don't think she knew what she was in for. But Donavon put her on a surfboard so she left with a new love of surfing and a really bad sunburn. Poor Anna. 
     The Montauk show was great. 1500 people in a 500 capacity venue. The cops came and the fire marshall too. I think they came out just to check out all the super models and their bling. There had to be at least a million dollars worth of sun glasses in the joint. I saw paparazzi everywhere as the Surf Lodge is the place to be in Long Island. The executive chef is a winner from Top Chef and cooked us up some tasty grub. Donavon traded Chef Sam some surf lessons for some cooking tips. Bring in those fish tacos. That's all for now tune in later for a new daily update from our film crew (Craig) for more daily updates and shenanigans from D.F. and the crew. PEACE!
