Storms, they be a brewin’………….

Had a nice big relaxing breakfast to start our day off with. Got caught up on dishes and laundry and decided to take a drive — -my baby Sister is coming in – in a couple of days and I want to make sure I have a lot of places to take her and hubby to show off our beautiful island…… We actually managed to find a road we haven’t been on yet (there are still a handful of them out there)… and found a beautiful overview of the NE end of the island. Winds were up really high today and storms popping up all over the place – so our normally gorgeous turquoise waters were churned up and not all the shades of blue we’re used to seeing – but equally beautiful in their own right.

We drove most of the NE portion of the island and then headed out west to what is generally referred to as Veterans drive…… I had seen it on the map and have been wanting to check it out, so when we came down off the mountain – we headed out that way. Beautiful stretch of beach….. lots of sand – and watching the storms roll around out on the sea was fascinating and beautiful all at the same time. Took lot’s of pictures – just hope I can get some to load….. out stellar internet here is in rare form tonight – and I barely got logged in here, so getting some pictures up should be a treat. Followed Veterans drive until it disappeared into the water….. literally……. road-water…..boom – just like that. Squirreled around and headed back into town. Stopped at a little local place right on the beach for some liquid refreshments and to sit there and watch the sea churn while storms rolled around in the distance. It was wonderful right up until it started raining on us – so we finished out drinks and headed on down the road. I can’t wait to show Lil Sis and my Brother-in-law that place….. they’ll love it~!!  Didn’t get a whole farther down the road and my bride said she wanted to check out a place we have passed several times….. Louie & Nacho’s. Turns out – that is the name of the owners dogs…… gotta love that~! We sat and had a couple of drinks…. I ordered a plate of their specialty nachos while my Queen ordered some Ceviche. Well her ceviche was too spicy for her – so I had to eat it and she polished off my damn tasty nacho platter (with beef)…… We finished that off, had a couple of more drinks (or 6) met and chatted with some really nice folks and watched a fabulous sunset. Finally loaded ourselves back into the bus and motored our way back to our little mountain top retreat. As we were leaving I noticed their sign at the exit and HAD to take picture of it. For my regular readers – I’m sure you’ll recognize the picture I’m talking about (if I get it to load) — Came home, killed a  couple of small centipedes and settled in for the night while an unusually cool wind whistled and blew around the mountain. Should make for a great nights sleep~!

Good night ya’ll –thankx for stopping in~!


(too many pictures to load all tonight – more later)

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~!!!! ;-)
