|so we got there about 2 or something and had heard that dom was working at a little fair thing for santa rosa days selling borritos. figured we would check it out and look for him. didn't see him, the fair sucked...|
|got in the requisite trip to blue hole. we saw dom's brother ivan here though and he told us that dom was at the grand parents house|
|after picking him up we decided to get something to eat at dom's mom's restaurant. mateos|
|the interior, food wasn't bad|
|it's also home of the santa rosa bus station|
|after eating we figured we would check out the place we were going to stay. it was right next door and i was pretty anxious. up to this point everytime someone mentioned that we were staying at the oasis the response was always "that burned out place??"|
|this could be interesting...|
|yup, it was burned out alright but looks like it could be fun. dom forgot the key so while he went to look for it we figured we'd check the place out|
|ashley thinking he's a pimp...|
|yeah, it's really burnt.|
|dom finally shows back up with the "key" which is apparently a screw driver. this is looking better and better all the time. so anyway dom gets the key to work and we drop off our crap and go to finish checking out the place.|
|found the pool|
|with a fountain!|
|dom takes a break|
|alright enough of that, we figure it's time to hit the bar, conveniently the pecos is right across the street. it looks promising.|
|not alot going on this early i guess so we play a few games of pool|
|we head back to the oasis where earlier we spotted some beer already in the fridge. pretty nice amenities for a burned out hotel|
|hanging out by the pool.|
|look, the moon|
|harold was antsy as usual so we went to check out some spring fed lakes and some of the town. we were sitting at the edge of this little lake/pond and we see what looks like a fish jump. then we see it a couple of more times, we were all wishing we had brought poles now. after a minute we're starting to question our initial fish theory. whatever it is seems to be coming right towards us. it was pretty wild looking but about the time i was considering whether i needed to get ready to bail out some scuba guys pop up.|
|back at the motel hanging out for a few|
|pecos is looking good so we head back|
|this girl in the pink was pretty cool, her and this other girl who i think was dom's aunt or something show up and hang out. still not alot going on here.|
|there's a story for with this one... after we've been there for an hour or two some chick comes in and sits at the bar. she's pretty wasted. someone goes to get drinks and comes back pointing out that the drunk chick has undone her belt and flopped her tits out onto the bar. yuck... harold called it. on the trip down he said that we would probably see some tits on this trip but that we would wish we hadn't, but it was pretty entertaining none the less. so anyway we all thought it was pretty funny and didn't think much more about it really. well a few minutes later the drunk chick makes her way over to our table and is talking some drunk babble which i wasn't paying alot of attention to. but then she caught my attention when she suddenly whips those juggers out again right into harolds face. the look on harolds face was great. what i didn't catch at the time but found out later is that this was somehow directed towards the two chicks at our table. words are exchanged, girls stand up and drunk chick starts going nuts. it gets pretty crazy right here. not much fighting going on, the owner lady of the bar, who i think is also dom's aunt or something, comes in and starts throwing drunk chick out but she doesn't want to go. dom all of a sudden goes into bouncer mode or something. (this is about where i decided i should probably document this and took this pic.) so dom man handles drunk chick out of the bar. we stayed seated.|
|apparently once outside drunk chick takes her shirt completely off and is taunting the owner lady, (possibly with a bat but i can't testify to that). all these people start running up from i don't know where and are trying to break it up and stuff. somewhere in this time dom runs in and tells me to get my camera. none of those pics came out though. i think harold took this one when the cops showed up. (note the hot lady cop)|
|this is hope, ashley had been talking to her
earlier so mark hunted her down and brought her over for formal
introductions which went something like this.
mark: "hey guys, this is Smoke"
woman: "Hope, my name is HOPE"
mark: "whatever, ashley, remember Smoke??"
|random bar shot, this is right before they
started closing i think and probably about the time mark started
telling everybody "party at the oasis!!"
|so alot of people seemed to accept marks
invitation to party at our place. after the bar closed i think pretty
much everyone who was there came over to the oasis. i'm not sure who
they are but here are a few of our guests.
|marks explanation of the situation
|feeling good, breakfast the next morning at
|on the trip back
|thank god for mp3's
|and we made it...
