    Default Cigarettes cigars cigar

    If you have been to CN then you understand! My wife and I are wondering if he is still peddling up and down the beach? I understand a lot of people find the vendors annoying but his signature call was our way of officially starting our day. We are due home the 20th and can't wait!!!

    We call him "Hat", but I think his real name is George. He's been walking the beach for as long as I've been going to CSA (12 years), selling "Cigarettes, Cigars, Cigars, Rolling Papers". One of the beach songs we look forward to hearing each time.

    He was there in April. I have one of his tee shirts to prove it.

    We too don't feel we've arrived until we hear his call.

    As of last September he was still there. My husband and I got a kick out of that guy. He was amusing and his little chant is catchy. My husband even began to sing that little "cigarettes cigars cigar" chant to himself and to me throughout our vacation.

    But to be clear it is two different guys. The guy in the video is not the guy in Fawridge's photo.

    Fawnridge's photo is from CSA. As he said, a great melody (his voice) lets us know we are back home. 3 seconds into our wedding ceremony on the beach at CSA on 4/20/13... From about 50 yards away.... There came the sound. We both burst out laughing, which caused a very puzzled look on the Minister's face. Priceless moment!
