Our Marine celebrated his 36th birthday this weekend. His usual request is to go to Pineapple Willy's on the beach. We have been doing this now for several years. It is one of few places that has a deck out over the beach where one in a wheelchair can enjoy the scenery. The weather was just perfect with a nice ocean breeze. Sunday was also the last day of Thunder Beach where 1000's of motorcycle riders come to enjoy the beaches. This was an extra treat for the Marine as he is crazy about motorcycles.
His brother called him from Afghanistan the night before to wish him a happy birthday but we missed the call. By the time we got the message it was too late to call him back. There is a 9 1/2 hour time difference.
We recently found out if the Marine has a little taste of lemon he can swallow a small amount of liquid without aspirating so he was able to have a little bit of Pineapple Willy's famous frozen Daiquiri.
It was a very nice day.
Happy Birthday Marine!
