Expect that it will be HOT in the sun (85), and cold in the shade (68) and at night (62). Assuming golf will feel 85, beach will feel 65-75. I'll have a bathing suit and tee shirt to run around in before sunset, and shorts and a sweater/sweatshirt, maybe jacket after sunset (we never wear shoes).

GOLFING: The Spanking at Spindrift (4:30p) (http://www.ljbtc.com/Golf?ssid=212846)

The Players:   Scaf, Susie, Chris, Patrick, Crystal, Cari
The Scene:  The Spindrift Course is considered among not many of golfing's elite to be the toughest test of golf this side of Pine Valley. An errant shot is as likely to ding a Bentley or break the window of a Masserati, often causing even the most steely-nerved golfer to go weak in the knees or head. With every hole between 57 and 81 yards, you'll find you need every lob wedge and putter in your bag-- but not much more than that or it makes it tough to juggle your beer, Bloody Mary, or Belvedere and Tonic. A double loop here for 18 holes, and we'll find out if Scaf is just great, or The Greatest.

EATING: Paddling, Bocce, Beer and Beach Barbecue (http://www.ljbtc.com/)
