Ah, Summer

On Thursday, Julie called me out of the blue and asked if I wanted to go to the beach.  I threw a bathing suit, towel, and sunblock into my backpack and was ready to go.

We caught a marshrutka from Poti's bazari and went to Ureki, about 20 minutes away.  The bus dropped us off kind of far from the Sea, but Mark teaches in Ureki and we ran into some of his student cops.  They gave us a ride right to the water's edge, very fantastic of them.  Ureki Beach is certianly nicer than Poti's -- far less trash and no industrial port to muck everything up.

I'd stopped into a market on my way to the bus and decided to grab a bottle of vodka... because, you know, why not?

Mark, Julie, and I had an utterly perfect afternoon sitting and chatting, sipping from our various bottles and swimming.

We caught the last marshrutka heading back to Poti at around 7:00, and went to one of our favorite little local cafes in Mark and Julie's neighborhood.  Pretty damn sweet for a Thursday!
