The Sun, The Sand……………

Really calm relaxing day today….. Confirmed our plane tickets to our next island (Curacao) and looked at possible places to stay.  Even looked at next possible island (Bonaire) as the farther out you book, the better prices you’re apt to get.

Finally gathered up our gear and jumped in the car to look for a beach that was supposed to be close to our apartment and supposedly really good for snorkeling. Some way or another we managed to miss it and wound up at Tukka, our new favorite bar. We figured since we were there we would stop for a drink and ask about our mystery beach . That didn’t work worth a damn – as we stayed long enough to forget why we were there – but sure had a good time doing it.  🙂   I guess you’ll have that every now and then – kind of an alcoholic dementia. Loaded back up in the car and headed back to the apartment, stopping for more drinks (but this time it was milk and cokes at the store)  😉  Finished out what was left of the afternoon nibbling on fruit and cheese….. and catnapping on the couch.

When the time comes, that you get the chance to retire – I strongly recommend it…. it’s great~!

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~!!!! ;-)
