Maybe turtles and Cramers Beach

Woke up this morning bright and early and came out to a quiet house… walked out on the patio for the first smoke of the day and was greeted by [what I hope] is an awesome sight. The digging from an apparently good size turtle~!  When you see the pictures, you’ll see what I mean. I was a little dismayed at the fact the ‘nest’ was left open, so I eased out to the digging, only to see several footprints in and around the nest. I’m afraid one of these jug headed transients we have staying here, saw her and went out and messed with her until she left. I am hoping she comes back tonight to finish what she started….. and God help anyone I catch messing with her. Fascinating to see something like that in your world.

Crowd got up and moving shortly after I came in and before long the boys were gobbling up chocolate chip waffles. After getting in some wake up time – the adults sat down for a nice breakfast as well – with the boys jumping in to score some of that breakfast as well. I guess they are working up quite the appetite with all the swimming and snorkeling their doing. Everybody’s bellies full, we loaded up drinks, snacks, towels and snorkel gear and headed out for yet a new beach. We went back out to the East end today to check out Cramer Beach. We had the place to ourselves when we got there and it was only a matter of minutes before we were all in the water. We had several other groups of folks join us out there as the day wore on, but the beach is big enough, we never felt crowded. Swimming, snorkeling, snacks and shade breaks sprinkled in there and 4+ hours later we were tuckered, spent and hungry.  We loaded the bus up and off we went, stopping at Cheeseburgers in America’s Paradise to check out their fare. We had burgers, popcorn shrimp, cold boiled shrimp, something that vaguely resembled a Burrito and chicken fried steak with smashed taters and corn. Of course there were cool adult beverages to help wash things down. The boys all had Sprite. Bellies full, we all crawled back into the bus to head back for some conditioned air.   Back at the condo,  showers were taken to wash away all the salt and now the young-uns are heading for bed (this old one ain’t very far behind them)  😉

Tomorrow, another new beach and whatever adventures we can put ourselves into….. but for now………..

Good night Ya’ll —– Thankx for stopping~!

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~!!!! ;-)
