Nuoro, Italy: Part 3 - Cala Gonone: part 1

We worked hard enough to take the weekend off, and rode the Smart Car down the mountain to Cala Gonone, a small beach town in the Orosei Gulf, or Golfo di Orosei as the Italians say it. (and oh, July 28th, today is my birthday.)
We are amongst some beautiful country here in Sardegna, and it's high season mid-July, but there are relatively few tourists, and the tourists there are are all Italian it seems. I have heard almost no english being spoken since I have been here. This was a view on our drive from Nuoro to Dorgali.
This guy saw us puling over to take a view and copied the idea, what a biter.
We found ourselves finally in Cala Gonone, and it was too windy to rent a boat, so we decided to just take a dip in the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea. For you horndog's (Jgonz...) I got some topless girl BGP's for you.
The sand was more like mini-pebbles at this beach, and we had no towel, so we just roached ourselves to get dry.
And what a treat, the grocery store had Valsoia vegan Dove bars!
Cala Gonone, overlooking the Gulfo di Orosei is a paradise, and nearly nobody was using it!
This guy had a rad reading position.
Some more voyeuristic boobies for the Loyal Pawns.
We went to the local Aquarium which had some epic modern architecture.
A lowly little cuttlefish. The Italians call it Seppia, like the ink it squirts.
This was a dogfish, (a small shark) although there was no sign anywhere telling visitors this.
The view from the ceffeteria was glorious. Amazingly, there is not too much sea life here. The monk seals have dwindled away from here, and we had a hard time even seeing birds. The rocks are all free from bird-poo. We did see a few cormorants.
A Saturday evening outdoor Mass was being held in the woods behind a snack bar. Old women in traditional black dress were coming out of the woodwork, and Deanna was trying to cut them off at the pass to get a picture.

Happy Birthday Ed.Me and my Girl are going to Sardegna tomorrow, thanx for the travelling tips here.

Happy birthday! I bet you're psyched to be doing something awesome with your life on your birthday. I will probably just get a sweet ice cream cake and drink a bunch of beers and go skateboarding or something before it snows.

I remember you said Brainwash was going to come out August- but then it got pushed out to October. This was after you had to endure the Zumiez demo and I met you in the parking lot. Well, my birthday is at the end of October. How awesome.

I think it's awesome they have topless beaches but I think it would totally desensitize me to boobies after awhile? I don't know. I would be worried about getting a boner as well seeing all that at the beach and what not. Leaves literally nothing, to the imagination. That's kind of sweet you got some vegan Dove bars, but I bet you were still more stoked on the strawberry gelato.

My mom went to south Korea last week and won't be back until August 8th. Everyone is trekking the globe!

I agree. boob girl looks pissed.

Well, look whose birthday it is... Happy birthday, ya' sonuva bitch.

Deanna looks super stoked to be in that topless photo.
& I laughed at the "(Jgonz...)"

I'm pretty sure that was just a beach. Not a nude beach. I mean, it's Europe. What are boobs to them? Fatty tissue on the chest of women?
But we think of them as fun bags. I'm cool with that.

Plenty of sea animals.

Have a good birthday.

Part three,part one, partially confusing.

According to this creepy fake Ed Templeton myspace,it's your birthday

Also the Toy Machine Myspace has its birthday set to today also.

So happy Birthday,Mr.Templeton.

At least that "biter" is way uglier and less successful than you are.

How am I supposed to perv out on that photo when Deanna is in it and also her pissed off brother/boyfriend or whatever. They look like they've been arguing. Or maybe that guy was aware that you're a pervert,and tried to tell her to not get out so you don't take photos of her. I see you played me as the scapegoat for your dirty photo. Deanna needs to smack you across the face. Just kidding.Those are some nice breasts. Girls usually say "what do you see in these? What's the big deal?" They can entertain for hours.

You've been eating sugary treats in most of the posts.

I could never read while lying down. Must add vacationing in the Mediterranean on my "Things to do" list.

Don't worry,dan, I'm sure boobs shoved in your face will still give you pulsing boners. Yes,pulsing. throbbing...

Sorry to hear about your situation,john.

Happy Birthday Ed!
It's good to be crusty and wise.
I tell myself everyday.
Posted By: Eggs McManus on July 28th, 2010 at 11:28AM PST
Thank you jgonz.

Happy Birthday Ed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw it was your birthday in the skate mag and put it in my phone. I thought I would be the only one that knew. My birthday is oct. 5, same as jlay.

Was deanna a vegan when you meet her or did you make her become one? What's the story?
Posted By: john on July 28th, 2010 at 11:48AM PST
I've come to wish you,an unhappy birthday. Because you're evil, and you lie. And If you were to die, I may be sad;But I won't cry.
Drink,drink,drink and be Ill tonight.
From the one you left behind.

happy birthday from one of your birthday buddies:

Looks like you're having a great time in Italy. I'm digging your smart car steeze.

What are you doing today for your b-day? I'm bumming on being another year older, and so far having no luck getting a job with a skateboard company.
Posted By: derek on July 28th, 2010 at 03:14PM PST
Well I guess if you're still in Italy, the question should be, "what DID you do for your b-day"
Posted By: derek on July 28th, 2010 at 03:17PM PST

I worked on my birthday. It was actually the most hectic work day yet. You see all the fun posts when I took the weekend off, but most days here are spent in the museum hanging the show, cleaning everything, making installations, and generally getting the show prepared to open. Today, my birthday, I painted a huge word bubble, and painted text on it, made sure all the titles were correct for the plaques that hang next to the artwork, and that is it. My neck is fucked from painting standing up on a wall all day. The show opens tomorrow, so everything has to be done today. Tomorrow is also a skate jam that I have to appear at, and skate at, even though I don't have my board, and only have slip on shoes. Thanks for the comments! Sorry for so much boobie. I thought you guys would get a kick out of it. Boobs are much more mysterious when they are covered, and helped out by flattering bras. The topless beach democratizes the boobs, and you realize that most boobs are pretty much the same, and sometimes hot girls have not-so-hot boobs and vice versa. But they are no big deal in the context of the beach, the bedroom may be a different case...

Whoa there. Whoever said they wanted less boobs?
Boobs may look good behind the bra,but when it comes off you'll be surprised. I haven't been with a girl that's basically nipples.there's usually some boobage there. Big boobs aren't really that good. Other dudes stare at them and they're clumsy. maybe they'll sag too.

Good thing you brought your scooter though.Jam on that.

Fresh,do you stare at bootys when girls dance to Duranguense music? Just eat your mole at a wedding or quince and enjoy the view.

I agree with Hemlock. More hairy,older men.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on July 28th, 2010 at 04:36PM PST
You can have my board. Even though I live way far away.

happy birthday ED, never stop making art

That's basically nipples. haha.

Maybe that chick was super drunk... & her boyfriend is trying to get her to put the shirt back on that she ripped off. "Let go'a me, dick! Puuuuusssy!". "Stacy, please! You're making a scene..."

Sugary sweets that don't go straight to your thighs. No way, Jose.

Ed, I'm sorry to hear that your birthday didn't go well. Unless, you didn't mind it, that is. Hope the rest of your trip serves you wellness. You deserve it.

As for the Skate Jam, find a longboard & barefoot cruise that shit.
Or have him ride through some puddles, So you can yell "It was the barefoot hippie kid!"

Hemmies, you're one of the reasons why this blog rules.

Have a nice & safe trip.
Posted By: Jacob on July 28th, 2010 at 07:12PM PST
nah nah nah my jgonzeypoo, legs.
booty? umm, i guess that might compliment the legs and be a plus, but legs just makes my kinky world go 'round.
Durangenze is off.. reggaeton makes 'em ho's move it.

skin is skin.. more tits please!
