Beach Party at Steelhead
There was a beach party at the Steelhead Estates last Friday. And a number of the residents joined Sheriff Fuzzball Ortega and his girl Eugene, and danced to the tunes at the ready-made beach. Some were in Victorian-Era full body swimsuits, others in swimwear from later times.
The place across the road read "Hotel Coral Essex." But the neon sign had the "Ho" "C" and "Es" blinking so it read ... well, something else entirely. Also, a "land shark" was digging underneath the surface of the sand, but stayed safely away from the partiers.
As the people danced to the 80s tunes, such as "Weird Science" and "Everybody Wants to Rule the World (appropriate for the mad scientists in the crowd), people talked and joked about various things. At one point, Fuzzball was asked about volunteering to wear a dress if enough was raised for the Relay for Life Steelhead Salmons. His answer, "You know how hard it is to top 'The Hair?' "
A fun time was had by all.
