There I was on the beach enjoying the sun, nibbling on some watermelon. All of a sudden, within seconds, the weather shifts and hail starts descending from the sky. The hail was between golfball and baseball size, they would bounce off you on their way to the ground. Leaving big welts the size of my fist.
I grabbed my things and the half of uneaten watermelon. And made a run for protection under the overhang of the public restroom. But the massive amounts of baby oil I had previously rubbed all over myself (eagerly to create the beautiful bronze look) was not helping me. I could not gain traction and even slipped dropping everything. Quickly I rose and gathered my belongings, returning to the mad dash I was making for the restroom.
Under the overhang provided me with no protection from the wind. Which would blow and beat me with hail. I fumbled through my things I came to realize I dropped my clothes during the run looking back over the beach that was now covered in about four inches of hail I could not see my clothes or even my tracks.
The sky was getting darker by the minute and temperature was steady dropping. I needed to do something or I was going to freeze to death. It did not help that I hitched hiked here, for now I was alone with no car. I do remember a gas station about a mile before I was dropped off. I will have to run for it the hail and wind that seems to keep increasing in force. This was going to hurt. I scooped out half the water melon and used it for a helmet. Off I went running half naked and hell bent.
