Nibbling little bastards…………

The day today started off a lot rougher than I cared for and took most of the wind out of my sails – but my Queen got me back on track and by 2:00 or so we were lounging on one of the most gorgeous beaches on the island (7 mile) and wasn’t long before I was out tooling around one of my most favorite snorkeling sites [so far] on the island. I found out today, some of them fishes, as they start getting used to you, I guess want to sample you to see if you’re edible. Nibbling little bastards…. bites didn’t really hurt, but sure enough scare the crap out of you when you’re not expecting it. (It was not unrealistic to imagine Jaws taking a bite our of your ass when that happens too) I had several nibbles to what I can only assume was the hair on my back – a couple of them really liked my fingers when my arms were down by my side – and one even tried a nipple – just no damn respect I’m telling you~! I often wondered why scuba divers always wear a wet suit…. I struggled with understanding why they would want to put them aggravating damn things on. I don’t wonder so much about it any more~ (Guess I should be glad I wasn’t skinny dipping)  😉

Getting a little more used to my camera and video so hopefully pictures and videos will start improving. Still cloudy as get out above the water, but water clarity continues to amaze me, even in low light conditions.

Finished up a very relaxing afternoon of beaching it and snorkeling with a cold drink and then a trip through the local Margarita bar. Came home, caught a shower and then up to the local joint for a quick bite. Main course left some to be desired – but had a really good day, had dinner and the rest of a really nice evening with my Bride….. kinda hard to beat that~  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
