Some touring, Cane Bay, some good eats and Blues……..

Another waking up to the squeals and chirps of little folks….. trying our dang-dest to wear them out so they sleep in a little bit – but no luck yet…. maybe tomorrow 😉  Another fun day on our gorgeous island….. starting out with a tour of the North Shore road, driving the same patch of road that Andy drove in his Cadillac while escaping to ZIHUATANEJO – in the movie The Shawshank Redemption…… we also checked out the rest of the North Shore road while my ‘Mess’ caught a nap in the back of the back of the Bus. He finally woke up and we came back down off the mountain and pulled into Cane Bay. Being early, parking spots were plentiful. The water was gorgeous, clear and warm. The wind was a little stronger than usual, but it didn’t stop any of us from plunging into that beautiful water to check out the local sea life. A couple of us spotted a big ole turtle swimming along as we headed into the water – but by the time I got out there with my camera – he was gone. There was plenty of other fun stuff to look at though. We all took turns spending time with the wee folks while the others got in some snorkeling or just floating about. We got out after about an hour for a shade break and some snacks and more sunscreen for the little guys. Rested, cooled, fed and hydrated we jumped back in for more water fun… We spent another 30-45 minutes before I hauled Mr. Colt out of the water….. he was spent and no longer having any fun. So I bundled him up in a chair in the shade and we watched the others until they soon all came up to join us. We all agreed that drinks and some chow was in order, so we popped on over to Eat at Cane Bay (Bar & Restaurant). We were greeted and seated promptly and Miss Rachel did a wonderful job taking care of us. We had some chicken parts, some French fries, conch fritters, Mahi Taco’s, Snapper sammiches, cheese cake, Key Lime pie and ample liquid refreshments – best part of the meal though, hands down, was the company and the view…… what a wonderful time~!!

Bellies full and thirsts quenched – we loaded up into the Bus and headed for the condo. Got back and cleaned the gear all up, got the salt rinsed off of us and settled in to suck up some conditioned air….. there were a couple of naps broke out to rejuvenate the ones that needed it. Naps accomplished, we headed up to our local hang out (Blues Backyard BBQ) as my favorite dude was up there playing (Jason Johnson) He’s the guy that does the awesome Johnny Cash song renditions. We had some drinks, and Eddy even brought out some Jell-O shots for the boys. (We’ll get them to sleep one way or the other)  😉    We had drinks, listened to JJ and caught up with friends we haven’t seen in a little bit and introduced our family to our ‘Blues Family’. JJ was winding down so we loaded up and am now back here…. trying to get my ‘Mess’ to go to sleep……..

Another big day tomorrow…. starting out with a boat ride up Salt River — should be a fun start to another fun day~

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~!!!! ;-)
