I always wondered what Ellery would be like if he was truly away from his job, all of his responsibilities, and his normal inhibiting social factors!

And I guess now we know! LOL!  I do like hearing your thought process, Louise.  It gives me some insight as to why and how your characters are so real!

well just so you know that everyone will be arriving back in Tourmaline in one piece -- eventually.

“Cause it’s a nude beach is why.”

 :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:  Oh, Louise, this is too funny!  Colson on a nude beach - with Howard Hughes no less!  All I can say is, Wes better not call again and ask how they're doing .......  this is definitely something he doesn't need to know!  LOL! 

This is so much fun.... thanks!

I am sure trying to make it fun.  So far Colson isn't enjoying himself too too much!!!

I feel for Colson - this is a lot for him to take in at once .... but I do understand Ellery's desire to throw caution to the wind and just be FREE for a change.  And I think in the long run this will be good for Colson, too - I hope!

“I ain’t takin my clothes off,” Colson warned once more.

“Ya don’t have to.”


Hmmm... well, I guess that remains to be seen!   :laugh:  Thanks, Louise.

This story is so much fun Louise.

But I'm wondering if, after this trip Colson will ever agree to go on holiday again... :-\  ;D

Hmmm, I'm hoping that the beach won't be crowded (or better, completely empty LOL). Maybe that way Colson might lighten up a bit.

Looking forward to the next chapter Louise. Thanks.  :)
