Fun day with family~

Guess most of you know my little Sister Nelia and her husband Brad have left the snowy confines of their home state of Michigan to spend some time with us here on St. Croix. We picked up them up at the airport late yesterday afternoon before getting moved into yet another temporary place to live. We have moved to a more desirable part of the island, into a condo that seems like the Taj Mahal compared to our previous place. It has no TV service…. but other than that, this place is heaven – and it has internet~! And not just internet – a good strong signal internet…….!  >>> insert beaming rays of sunlight and heavenly choir singing<<< I can’t wait to see how quick pictures will load on here~!!

We took “Neil” and Brad downtown where we had a delicious breakfast and toured the Christiansted boardwalk and shopping area. We took the ferry out to Hotel on the Cay and walked around and enjoyed the beautiful water and sunshine. Returned to down town for a little shopping and finally back to the condo. It is the beginning of Summer here and today was probably the hottest day we have experienced so far on the island. After we had done the down town thing – we got back to the condo. We just kinda sat around a cooled off for a bit and chatted and soon decided a drink was in order. We loaded up into Double D’s and headed out for our favorite hangout – Blues Backyard BBQ~!

Lil Sis and Brad got to meet some of the fine folks there at the Backyard…… including the owners and cooks. Josh Jones was on stage playing good country music (including some amazing Johnny Cash) and everyone was having a good time. I think Neil may have discovered wonders of local island rum and may have her a new drink.  😉

Tomorrow plans include driving out to the East end to see Point Udall – and followed up in the evening with a bioluminescent kayak tour up at Salt Bay in the evening. Has the makings of a really great day.

Gonna wrap it up here and get some pictures up for you so I can get back to my Sister and Brad. Ya’ll have a good evening – and Thankx for stopping in~!

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~!!!! ;-)
