WHO: Everyone!
WHAT: Beach Party
WHERE: Prospero Beach
WHEN: Saturday, May 19th all day
RATING: Swimsuits, water fights, sun burns, alcohol--oh my! Will... lock if things get out of hand.

ALSO: We're going to try something a little bit different from normal big event logs as far as organization of threads. I've seen this done with success so we'll try it here! This will be an experiment of sorts. Please comment with ONE THREAD (and only one!) per character to be tagged by others. For your header please write your character's name so people will be able to find and tag you with ease! For example, "Yukiho Hagiwara | Open"; you can check out my posts below as an example! There are three listed areas and please try to contain your characters in these three listed areas in this log. The areas include Prospero Beach's swimmable ocean, Prospero Beach's shore, and the boardwalk. Feel free to let creativity roam free! There are lots to do in any of these locations!

Action or Prose style threading is fine here; no pressure! And don't forget to tag yourself in!

[ Wow.

Enjoying that sizzling heat? The dry, slow-rolling heat that just bakes everything? You thought sitting in a desert was hot. No, this seems hotter. The sun was an oppressive slave driver beating down hot UV lashings onto your poor unprotected backs, the air just sucking the moisture out of everything. So then, is it a relief when suddenly the weather turns for the muggiest? The heat still remains, but it's a gross, damp, icky heat you feel to the bone. The air is so humid and hot you could poke a leak into it with a knife. This disgusting weather goes on for days--until finally on Saturday, there's relief! It's still hot, but the humidity and temperature both drop to at least comfortable hot levels. Not to mention it's sunny, pleasantly breezy and not a cloud in the sky.

Time to hit the beach Prospero! ]

Along this quaint boardwalk are a number of food vendors. Come beat the heat with a Popscicle! Grab some funnel cake! Are those hot dogs being grilled over there? Maybe you'd like some fish and chips! Of course food isn't the only thing that's making its way around the boardwalk; there are performers and peddlers out there to earn a buck as well! Watch out--did someone just ride on by on a bike?

It's clean, pristine sand as far as the eye can see! Thanks to the efforts of the sun and the city it's warm and for the most part litter free! Come for a game of beach volleyball! Build some sand castles! Go for a beach jog! Maybe you're turned off from Boardwalk food so you brought your own grill for a picnic! Or lay down, soak up the sun and take a nap!

The ocean is refreshingly cold but all the inviting, considering how yucky-hot it's been! The swimmable area on the beach is noted by marked buoys to keep aquatic vehicles out and swimmers in. But outside? Anything goes! There's a dude up the beach renting out innertubes, floatation devices, boogie boards--even row boats, canoes, paddle boats! If you have the money you can spring for such frivolous expenses like a jet ski! Or maybe you have a bud who owns a yacht?
