By three A.M. when it started to break up there were
still 150 people around. Most everyone had lost part of
their clothing and three other girls were like me,
completely nude. Elliott got my coat – I left my hose
and heels and after claiming our car we headed back to
our friends’ condo.

We thought about making it in the surf, but by then the
temperature was honestly in the low 50’s with a strong
wind out of the north, and even with four glasses of
wine it was too cold for “From Here to Eternity –
revisited.”

It was a great New Year – hope everyone else can say the
same!
