frog soup

We went to a fancy spa-like place for Michelle's birthday. It's up the coast in a beautiful "off the beaten path" type area surrounded by gorgeous redwood trees and babbling brooks. It was one of those get aways where your goal is to leave the modern day behind and sort of get back to nature. Oh we got back to nature all right. In fact, nature cozied right up to us. We decided to go in the hot tub even though it was cold and raining. We grabbed a bottle of red and a couple plastic glasses, put on our swimsuits and robes and ran to the hot tub. We jumped right in! Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! fun!! I popped the cork and poured a couple glasses. Aaahh... nice. Super warm bubbly water in the middle of a rainstorm. What could be better? Loved it. Until.. i noticed we weren't alone. Apparently the local amphibian residents of the spa had the same idea. And we discovered we had busted in on a partying bunch of frogs that had already claimed the hot tub. Now here's the question? Leave the hot tub to the frogs? or stay and enjoy a glass of wine in the rain with our new friends?      
I'll never tell.....

I love love love this post! The frog cracks me up. I had a crab living in my shower when I was in Mexico once. At first, he "hid" behind a leaf when he saw me but by the end we were shower buddies.
