My Happy Place

I am on vacation this week in Cocoa Beach, FL. We’re in an Airbnb right on the beach, the good kind that is. No sand wedge required.

So far today, we’ve walked about 3 miles on the beach and picked up a bunch of trash.

Why would we walk the beaches picking up trash on our vacation? I can’t stand to see task on the beach. The beer cans can be deadly to sea life too. It also gives me much needed exercise. I am also not thinking about servers or code.

What's the temp?  Forecast?  

Some rain came through, so it’s a bit chilly now. Still outside in a long sleeve shirt, but the natives are freezing. 🤣

It will be in the 70s most of the week.

We don't have a coastline where I live in central Europe but I must say the German people are very tidy. You would be verbally criticised for littering here.

Not so here. Some of the items I could have easily blown out of someone's hand accidentally. The shredded shoe is a mystery. The beer cans and water bottles we found are not such a mystery.

Germany was clearly less littered when I visited. Not to excuse anyone in the US but it could be a lot worse. Just look at some of the rivers absolutely filled with garbage in other parts of the world such as in New Deli

Back home and back to reality. On Wednesday there was a bad rip tide that churned up a lot of debris and washed it onto the beach. I was overwhelmed with the amount of trash. It was like the ocean was regurgitating the filth of humanity.

    • I stand just far enough away from the net that I’m not going to hit the frame in the follow through with the club. The ball shouldn’t ricochet back towards you with that net. The bigger problem is the wind likes to knock it down.
    • I will never stand within six feet of the net. Took a hard ricochet standing too close few years ago. Ball hit me on the nose bridge squarely making me pass out for a minute. Just saying...
    • Fortunately my wife doesn't care how much I golf. We are both in our mid 30s.  She doesn't play but loves tagging along and driving the cart.  Shes there to drink a few cocktails, look for balls in the woods with a retriever and make fun of my game.  We even went on a cruise to Bermuda this summer and let me play at Port Royal while she tagged along as well.    Im off weekends and she works 95% of weekends so those are wide open for me
    • Keep swinging in a simulator in the winter to stay consistent. That's a big if being I plow snow for the town and can be called into work at any second My last round last week outside, back 9 hit 5 of 9 GIR.   Amazing how much smoother a swing is when you're constantly playing.   Im still a 18ish handicap, short game betrays me from time to time.  Wish there was a better way in winter to improve the short game.  I have an indoor putting mat and chipping net with soft balls, works good for ball striking I guess
    • Right now I have a set of One Length Cobra F8s.   I really thought about getting the new Cobra LTDx One Lengths.   The PW of the F8 is 44*.   However the LTDx is 41.5*.   The 5i of the F8 is 22.5*.  The LTDx is 20.5*.    My question is, there will be a bigger gap between a new PW and my standard length 49* AW (yea a 44 to 49 is a solid gap as well but its pretty well gapped yardage wise).   And my current 4h will basically be the same loft as a new 5i.   Will it be a waste of time getting new irons without buying a complete new set of wedges.  Or is technology so far advanced in the shafts that the lofts don't mean as much comparing new and old irons.
