I had a great 4th of July at the beach. We got to the beach late Thursday night and went out and had a few drinks with some friends. The bf bought most of my drinks so I only spent about $15 at the bar. We got up early Friday morning, the bf went and got the boat out of dry storage while I made sandwiches and snacks for the afternoon. We headed out to Crab Island for the entire day and got back to the condo just before the fireworks started at 9. We were so tired from the long day on the water, we went to bed early. The next morning we did it all over again. But Saturday night we went out to eat at a really nice restaurant for dinner. Afterwards we headed to the bar for a few drinks. My total at the bar was $33.
Gas for the trip - $76.37
Ice for the boat - $6.14
Drinks for the boat - $20.82
Drinks at the bar Friday - $15
Drinks at the bar Saturday - $33.00
Grand total for the 4th of July weekend - $151.33. That means that I only went $1.33 over budget for the long weekend. Not to shabby.
