Another good day with family~~~ : )

Everybody was up bright and early this morning [whether we wanted to be or not] ….. and it wasn’t long before some of the folks were clamoring on about being hungry…… I swear, didn’t we feed you all last night ??  😉    I suggested we load up and head into town to Toast Diner for a wonderfully delicious breakfast that none of us had to make……… we have been there multiple times and enjoy it more every time we go…… This time we got to introduce the Jenkin’s clan to the place. My heartfelt bragging about the Bloody Mary’s this place makes stands solid – everybody that partook, was pleasantly impressed….. I even heard “that was the best Bloody Mary I have ever had” out of Josh~  Seriously ya’ll — if you make it to St. Croix, whether you stay with us or visit on your own — if you enjoy a Bloody Mary – you need to check out this eatery – this place will tickle your innards….. We had eggs, pancakes (with strawberries & whipped cream) Biscuits & gravy and a happy combination of other delightful breakfast foods…… I heard nary a compliant out of anyone.  : )  Bellies full, we headed back to the boardwalk to find the shop that had ‘Pirate Stuff’ for my Deuce……. we got to the store and before long was equipped with ‘Pirate Stuff’ and a hand bag and some memories…….. We went from there to the end of the board walk to board the local ferry to Hotel on the Cay…… a short boat ride, but a boat ride none the less, so Pa-paw could say he got his little buddy a boat ride – the best part of it was though, we got out on the island and was soon wading on a beautiful little beach.  I was very happy to see that even though no one had on swim suits….. Mom (Stephanie) let the little guys bail into the water, shorts, shirts and all. Those two little dudes sure had a good time in that beautiful blue water. We got to see a couple of fish and some sea urchins~! As we were getting ready to leave, the nice lady at the desk gave us some Frito Lays corn chips and we crunched them up and threw them in the water and soon we had bunches of fishes coming up to nibble – it was wonderful~! We took the boat back to the main island and was soon back at the condo soaking up some conditioned air. There was a nap involved for ‘Mess’ (Colt) We had some snacks and was then soon out on the beach headed for the pool. The pool was uncharacteristically cold – so we opted for a romp in the surf on our beach – where my buddy Will learned to snorkel~!!!  He did so good~!!! Took right to it~!! We have decided tomorrow, we’re gonna head up to Point Udall, then stop by Kramer’s Beach and try to get Will into some serious snorkeling. Promises to be a real fun day and I’ll try and get some pictures for you….. and prosperity  😉

Good night ya’ll …… Thankx for stopping by~~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
