Tried desperately to sleep in this morning, but the urge to visit the bathroom was just too overwhelming, so about 06:00, I begrudgingly rolled out of bed and semi-sprinted to the bathroom. Between that feeble effort of a sprint and all of that brilliant sunshine pouring into the living room – I was up 🙁 whether I wanted to be or not, so I washed my face, brushed my teeth….. arranged and straightened the few remaining strands of hair on my head…… and walked out to the beautiful view I get to wake up to every morning. Plus I get to listen to the surf pounding in while I stand there and enjoy that first cigarette of the day and that view. My Queen was an hour or so behind me, so I had a fairly quiet start to my day. We had coffee, and just kind of lounged and enjoyed a peaceful start to our day. It got to be 09:00 and my belly was growling, so I went in and started a nice big breakfast for us. Eggs, bacon, hash browns, 3 kinds of sausage, toast and a small glass of milk……. Mighty fine way to kick off a day~~!
Kind of recuperating from a fairly busy weekend, we were both content to sit and watch the idiot box, with lots of reruns of COPS and North Woods Law. We finally decided we’d had enough of that and started watching some movies. First one we watched was ” A Walk in the Woods” with Robert Redford and Nick Nolte — about 2 older guys who want to hike the Appalachian trail. It is something I would love to try!! Yes, even now at my advanced age…. I think I could do it, probably wouldn’t set any speed records – but would love to try in it none the less~! A guy I worked with who recently retired, completed it and I am in awe of him. It was a good movie – you’d probably enjoy it. The next movie we watched was called “Jungle” Based on a true story — Main star was the kid that plays Harry Potter. I wouldn’t pay to watch it, but for free, it was not too bad……. For reason’s I’ll probably never figure out – I felt the need to watch “The Shawshank Redemption” again. I have seen this movie (or at least pieces of it) 3 dozen times and always enjoy it every time I get to see it. I think maybe, it has a little more meaning to it, knowing now, that a couple of the final scenes were filmed here on the island – and it’s kinda neat, to see the scene and know that I have been to those actual locations and recognize them now when I see them in the movie~!
After ‘Shawshank’ my belly was growling again, so I whupped up a cheeseburger and started in on this. Yeah, yeah, yeah….. I shouldn’t be eating this late at night…. but I’m retired, old, fat and don’t really care 😉 So – now with a full belly, I’m gonna load some more pictures of the dive at Cane Bay yesterday and then probably waddle my old, tired, fat a$$ to bed….. got to get my rest for that sprint in the morning~!
Good night ya’ll —- Thankx for stopping in~!
