Yesterday I went snorkeling in the early morning with a couple of friends. We were hoping to see a manatee or two that a friend had seen a few days before...but were pretty sure they weren't going to be at 'X marks the spot'. They weren't. But we did see a spotted eagle ray and lots of gorgeously marked sea turtles, munching away on turtle grass
After our swim, it was time to do a bit of work. One thing about the tropics is that you try to remember that opening doors, or shaking out towels is something to do cautiously, because you never know what might be lurking. This is what was not exactly lurking, more like lurching around on the floor of one room. I've never seen a critter like this before. Anyone know what it is called beside Stickman? We played with it awhile and then set it in the gardens, where it quickly disappeared.
Better than seeing a scorpion!

Maybe the above is a tropical praying mantis? More research required! Thanks, Nancy!
* Update dos! It IS a stickman!!! Check it out.
Coming down from House Sitting Hill, these two beauties were meandering around the road. I love the tail on this darling baby...
One more cup of coffee. One more 'wait a little while to see what the weather is going to do'. Let the day begin...again!
Have a meaningful Monday! Do something mindful.
