Though we usually DO sit under palm trees on the beach and drink rum all day, there is that occasional side of work to be done while having fun. In my case, it's trying to get all the bits and pieces that are involved in moving my houseboat to its eventual home, which for me means coordinating very good friends for the hard work. Moorings, solar, plumbing, outboard engine, dinghy...it's like putting together a kid's toy starting on late eve of the celebration day, 'so simple a child of five can do it!' and finding out you are not five anymore and where the hell did part B go?
The fun far outweighs the above. Lucky for me!
|But first, my daughter Sarah is in New Orleans and lovingly torturing me.|
This is from Felix's. They got crawdads too. Oh, mercy!
|I have no idea who these people are but they looked like they were|
rowing in from St. Thomas
|The moon has glorious and the planets still aligned|
|He always has the best tee shirts!|
I've finally moved on to the houseboat (Know Mas), ready or not. Soon it will be moved to its own mooring but for now there is all I need to consider it homey camping. I swear one day I want to run a store on Culebra where you can buy a pillow. Or two.
|First morning view from my front door|
Another day, another happy hour. How happy can one be? I don't know but finding out is a pretty good way to spend some time.
|How lucky to see so many people in one photo that I dearly love!|
|And a rainbow to go with it!|
Oh, and a landing craft too.
|Buck Mulligan. If you read James Joyce's Ulysses, you'll remember him.|
If you didn't, here is one description.
I'd imagine the owner of this vessel to be a pretty interesting person.
|Happy happy joy joy!|
|Linda and I decided to eat at the Krusty Krab.|
|I had the catch of the day and it was really delicious.|
If I can't be picking blue crab, I can pick snapper!
|Linda had the shrimp creole. Also really good, |
with enough to fill her up and have lunch the next day
|In the early morning light|
|When there is little to no wind, it's a mish mash out there!|
|Can you say poignant?|
|It's that time of year again. This particular tree just gets crazy better every year|
|The orchid tree is blooming away|
|What you can do with all those wine bottles|
This morning dawned bright and clear, clear enough to see El Yunque.
|Once again, we can almost see cars on Vieques|
|And from the top of a hill, it's just another gorgeous day in Paradox.|
Have a putsomesalientinyour Saturday. Do something significantly sublime.
