We gave in, I admit, and last minute expedia'd a hotel room--setting up a tent in a rained on campsite just didn't sound that appealing. Of course, I also didn't bring a swimsuit, and there's a 24 hr heated spa/pool.
But still, we're at the ocean, and that's a good thing.
Update: Technology is such a wonderful thing! I textmessaged Sonja via her LJ profile and she just called--we're going to find her on the beach! hooray!!
