Riding a boat and looking for pirates……….

Day started out bright and early for some of us while others slept in a little bit. Darn little. Oma whipped up Eggo waffles for the smaller folks. The rest of us had eggs, bacon, sausage and biscuits. After we finished up that hearty breakfast, we kind of lounged a little bit before it was time to load up and head back down to the board walk to board our sailing vessel, the Mile Marker. After a quick safety briefing, we set out for points unknown to see our beautiful island from the water and hopefully find us some pirates. The beauty of that water is almost indescribable, so I hope it comes through in the 100 or so pictures I took for you. It was a very pleasant tour of the Gallows Bay area…. we went out past Green Cay before we returned back and cruised past the big barrier reef outside of the boardwalk….. just absolutely beautiful~! We completed our boat trip – sadly no pirates, but we’ll still look around the island  😉

All that sailing on the water works up a pretty good appetite, so we decided to stop at the You are Here bar for some refreshing adult beverages while the kids worked on their cola’s, etc. This particular bar is noted for their ‘Shrimp Dawgs’. It is 3 skewered shrimp, dipped in a pretty decent batter ( I forgot to take a picture of the menu, so I can’t tell you what it was – guess I’ll just have to go back)  and deep fried like a corn dog. Definitely pretty tasty~! Each stick had 4 shrimp on them and you got 3 ‘Dawgs’ for $ 18.00. Not terrible for touristy island prices and I thought it was well worth it. I’ll definitely do it again ( and take pictures)  😉

Came back home for a romp in the pool, some snacks, showers and the kiddlies are just now heading for bed. I have been trying to get this in a tad earlier so I’m not sitting here at Midnight writing…… especially when we have a big day tomorrow. Plans are to load up in the ‘Bus’ and head for Point Udall and some sight seeing along the way — should be another fun day, with lots more pictures~! Going to wrap it up here and start loading pictures…… will try and load a few more than usual since I took so many the past couple of days….. I hope you enjoy them~!

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~!!!! ;-)
