Point Udall and Little Sister……

Yesterday was the last full day for Neil & Brad on the island, and we tried to make the most of it. Started out with a good healthy breakfast whipped up by my Bride – Afterward, Neil said she wanted to run into town for a bit of shopping – so we loaded up into DD and away we went. Tooled around the boardwalk for about half an hour, stopping for a quick round of drinks at Rum Runners and then a little more shopping, then loaded back up and headed for Point Udall – the Eastern most point of the United States. It’s about a 45 minute drive out there – made even longer by pulling over in several places to enjoy the beauty of the dozen shades of blue of the water. Finally made it out there and spent probably 20-30 minutes just walking around and enjoying the site – before loading up and heading back.  Decided a bite to eat was in order so we stopped at Cheeseburger in America’s Paradise, for said bite and some liquid refreshment. Entertainment was provided by local chickens and a quite effervescent server…………

Got back to the condo – cooled off and just chilled for a little bit — The call was made we needed to stop by Blues Backyard BBQ one more time before we called it an evening. We got there just in time to catch the last hour of Hudson and the Hoo Doo Cats and get a couple of drinks before they shut the place down. I also managed to get me one of my smoked turkey, bacon and ranch sammiches~! MMmm- Good stuff~!

Came back to the condo, had a couple of more drinks and spent the rest of the evening chatting. I was too pooped to post and so I went on to bed knowing I had to get up fairly early in the morning – so sorry about that~!

Got Lil Sis and hubby to the airport and got them checked in…… Sure was great to see them and we’re already making plans for the next time they want to come back. We already have several good friends here on the island – but nothing beats seeing family – especially when you haven’t seen them in a while.   We headed back to the condo as the sun was coming up and walked into our now quiet little place. We both agreed the thing to do today – was nothing – and LOTS of it – and we pulled it off in grand fashion.

Good night ya’ll — 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~!!!! ;-)
