Day # 3 —

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~~ 😉

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
