The Myth, the Man, the Legend?

I am sure some or a lot of us will recognize this man. Itâ??s Aloe Al â??The Aloe Guyâ?. His real name is Andre (sp) and he is very interesting to talk to. I have known him for about 15 years now. Just recently I asked him how long he has been working/walking â??Palm Beachâ?. His answer surprised me; he said this was his 28th year. I also asked his age he said I believe he was 47 and donâ??t think that backpack he carries is light. It is pretty heavy. I asked him about changes on the beach and things like having BBQâ??s on the beach. He had some very amusing and interesting stories from years ago. So if you happen to get to see â??Aloe Alâ? and his flashy outfits get to know him you wonâ??t be disappointed.

Oh My gosh I remember him...I can't believe that he has been doing it for that long. He was very friendly to us...we didn't buy anything from him that trip, but I guess that he must make decent money if he has been doing it that long!

Cute picture...

Dunno why we've never seen him.

We certainly spend enough time on the beach!

I've only seen him on Palm Beach - have never seen him on Eagle Beach (but I could've been napping, too!) Wink

Here is a couple more photos of â??Aloe Alâ?? taken this summer 2006 at Playa Linda when I was there June?July. Around 12:30-1:00 you could hear him coming. Then ba-ga-boom there he would be walking up the beach in one of his Trade Mark outfits
