Trying to stay ahead of the game here….. went on line (while it was working) looking for a new place to live in case we haven’t found our permanent place by the time the lease runs out on this place… Came a cross a place – 3 bedrooms, 2 bath… for way less than we’re spending here – and it supposedly has TV that works~! Woo-Hoo~!! The best part of it is….. it is actually coming in under budget~!! First time since we’ve started this adventure that we will actually be under budget~!! Yay~!! With the hit the stock market has taken the last couple of days – we’re gonna need all the help we can get…… Excited at the prospect we jumped into the bus and headed out to find the new place (even though we have 2 weeks left here)….. finally found it – sitting high on a small mountain top down in a little cubby — probably won’t be much of a view, but we’re a lot closer to the ocean and will be back to a second bathroom that we BOTH have come to appreciate….. Can’t wait to see how it pans out – but we have time yet – so more to come on that.
Left the ‘new place’ and since it is close to the West end of the island….. we motored on out to a place I read about that sounded like fun. Rhythm’s Bar on rainbow beach. ( http://www.rainbowbeachstx.com/ ) Drove straight to it, as we had passed by it once before on an exploratory drive…… found a place to park and pulled in. Fun little place sitting on a pretty little stretch of sand beach off to one side of it. Pretty typical looking compared to what we’ve seen so far in our island hopping — open air bar with a bunch of beat up tables and chairs. Bar was pretty much filled with what I presumed to be locals and regulars, so we picked a reasonably clean table and had a seat. Abby was quick to show up and take drink orders and returned with a Crown and Coke and a bottle of Bud…… My Queen opted for a couple of shrimp taco’s and I had a blacken Mahi-Mahi fish sammich served with some secret sauce Abby recommend. Food showed up in pretty decent time and was delicious~! Asked about a liquid dessert and Abby mentioned a shot that the bartender said tasted like Cinnamon Crunch cereal. Well yeah I had to try it~!! My Bride opted out so I let her taste mine and before we knew it, we had each ordered and downed 3 more shots. Good Stuff~! It would have been real easy to sit there and get properly stupid – but not wanting to test the [apparent] very lax drinking and driving laws on the island…… I paid our bill and away we went — Very fun afternoon, staring out at the beautiful water, watching people enjoy each others company and just soaking up the atmosphere…… A truly enjoyable afternoon I hope I get to recreate and share with some of you some time.
Now to see if I can get a couple of pictures to load for you. Thankx for stopping in~!
