When Lovebugs Attack


When Lovebugs Attack, originally uploaded by A!ison.

The only thing I wanted to do for my birthday was have a relaxing day at the beach. I wanted to feel the hot sun on my skin and people watch. It's the simple things really.

So Special K and I drove to Cocoa Beach. On the way, we were assaulted by wave after wave of lovebugs. You could see the endless line of black bugs coming head-on with the windshield. By the time we got into town, you could barely see out the window!

The worst part is these bugs don't come off with soap and water. The best tool I've found, which was told to me by a local at a gas station, is dryer sheets. Strange I know, but it works like a charm. Didn't have a dryer sheet with us at the beach so Special K had to scrub as best as he could with a squeegee before heading home.

Oh, and we had an awesome time at the beach!

Gross!
I think I got caught in a love bug storm once, but luckily I was in a rental car so I didn't have to clean it!
