Full Moon, Family, Friends and Food. Of Course.

Fleeting times have big moments and one of them was yesterday. With a full moon and an eclipse promised, along with a comet (which we didn't see), it meant late beach time. T organized us and we actually all made it to the beach for the view!

But that wasn't the only thing that happened.

Waiting for the laundry to be done is a lot nicer here than by the gas station.

While waiting for the dryer to do its job, I was walking toward the PO when a really cute Mini Cooper came along. But what? There were a LOT of cute Mini Coopers! They had come over from the west side of Puerto Rico for an event. A guy saw me taking photos and asked if I'd send them to him; he's the president of the club. I said of course, and could I have a tee shirt? The extras were for the Mayor and others who helped make this happen though, so maybe I'll get one in the mail. Stealing the Mayor's tee shirt would be bad.

Another biggie was the baby coming out to the houseboat. She hates her life vest, but once it was off, she was pretty happy to play on a gently moving floor. 

Elijah said there was a surprise for me once we got back to the house. Truthfully, I'd have lost a lot of money if I'd tried to guess what it was. He and my daughter Sarah made sushi happen! Wow! Thanks, my kids and thanks, Jennifer, it was soooooo good!

Then it was time to herd all the cats to the beach for the moonrise. We were there and settled in time for glory moments.

These are a few of my favorite peeps

O kept herself busy making a natural art work.

"Don't go in the..." Never mind. 

It's been so good having Linda here. It's always as if she lives here again.
The moon just got better and better.

What a view the people in this plane got.
A fine beginning of a trip to St. Thomas.
Baby's first full moon party on the beach.

A mutual love affair

Me with the grand girls.

I didn't have the right lens with me but you can tell (if you look real close)
that there is a slice of moon in shadow.
Today my daughter Sarah heads back to California. I will head directly to the beach, offsetting THAT farewell. There's plenty of salt in the ocean.

Good morning, happy baby! Nancy made this dress for her (and a big sister version for O; she wore it on the plane). Baby looks good in clothing made of love. 

Have a scrumptious Saturday. Do something salutary.

  1. Hello. My name is Amelia and I'm currently living in Versailles, Kentucky. I've been enjoying your posts for a while, and I want to thank you for taking the time to write them. I have been in love with Culebra since first visiting a few years ago, and I hope to be able to move there sometime down the road, when my parents have adjusted to a new way of living here. Until then, I continue to look forward to living vicariously through you, and wish you much happiness and light! Love from Kentucky, Amelia.
