Started our day off with a nice breakfast and slowly eased into discover mode. Jumped in the SUV (Mitsubishi I think) in search of the closest Post Office. Yes, I know it was Sunday and it was closed, but the plan was to find it so we had an idea where it was at and then find the closest beach. AAHhhh – the best laid plans…….. Not sure how we got so far off track, but got a real good look at the North side of the island where the big oil storage area place is. Got an even better look at the non-touristy side of the island as well. Went over a massive ass bridge that had to be at least 300′ in the air. Great view from up there~!
Nerves had all we could stand, so found a place to stop for a couple of really good ice cold beers and a couple of cigarettes (and some directions) and off we went….. amazingly, drove back to the house like we had lived here most of our life — yay~! Came home – started mixing drinks, soon was listening to golden oldies on You Tube. Wound up in the pool to cool off and continued the drinks and music. Long overdue for something solid in us – I wheeled the grill out and whipped up a couple of cheese burgers. Not sure if it was just long over due to eat, being half hammered and tired or what – but for not having my grill – those were some pretty damn tasty burgers. Ended the evening up by trying something I haven’t tried in 40 years – a backflip. Didn’t work worth a squirt – but it was fun trying. In all fairness, last time I did it [successfully] I was 20 years old and about 6′ above the water…… so I don’t feel too bad…..
So, no Post office, no beach, but a well learned lesson in island navigation…. we will try again tomorrow for Post Office and some beach time…… we’ll see how it goes then. ( and yes – I’m naked in the pool picture)~~~ 😉
