Nice easy start to the day today – started out with a nice quiet breakfast here in the apartment and then lazed around until about noon — off and on showers continue to keep everything wet and locals say to expect the rainy season about another week. Spent lazy time mapping out bars, restaurants and good snorkeling spots on the map we have been using to get to know our new island.
Gathered ourselves up and headed out for a seek and explore tour of the East end of the island – stopped at the blow holes designated on the map and then found and checked off a half a dozen bars and restaurants. Finally pulled into a small place that looked inviting named TUKKA. Right on the waterfront where you could see remnants of a couple of old wrecks out on the reef. We ordered conch-gator fritters with a Rum Runner for me and a Crown & coke for my Queen. All wonderfully delightful~! A storm was blowing in as we left and we stood and enjoyed what felt like super cooled air coming at about 30-35 mph – It was a real eye opener as to what the people of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico must have went through with hurricane force winds. As the rain started, we jumped into the car and took off. We stopped at a small local grocery store for a few needed kitchen items and headed on back to the apartment.
A nice lazy day – even though it was short – a perfect kind of day for people learning the art of retirement~~ 😉
