Started the day off waking up to lots of heavy clouds…. a different start to the day, but a welcome one as we really need the rain here. It is now very dry all over the island and burn bans are now in effect. Not to mention, a great deal of the population rely on rainwater for their house hold use. Without it, they have to by truckloads of water to refill their hold tanks and it is very expensive to have to do that. Sadly, by noon all the clouds where gone without even one drop of rain and back to our beautiful blue skies.
I spent the first half of the day updating my spreadsheets from the paperwork from last night’s meeting. We had a really good turn out and I’m sure everyone had a good time. Meeting was at a new place called the Nauti Bar, and everything considered, I think the meeting went off pretty good. It was interesting listening to a ‘Professional’ underwater photographer and she offered up a lot of good tips. I got to spend some time talking with her about cameras, which is what I was wanting to do – as I would like to get a better camera in order to be able to take better quality pictures. I got lots of good tips on what to look for. More on that as it develops. We had over 50 entries in our photo contest and once I saw some of the pictures, I was almost embarrassed about submitting mine, although a couple of mine received several votes, so I don’t feel quite as bad now (and no – it was not me that voted for my pictures) 😉 We spent the rest of the afternoon watching The Unit and taking it easy, as we have a full couple of days coming up. We will be up at Blues for the duration of each day, to help out as needed around the bar and kitchen while Jim and Deb are living it up in New Orleans. Not sure how late or tired we’ll be getting home the next couple of days ‘after work’ – but I’ll do my best to get a couple of lines and a couple of pictures up each day of our adventures. For now, signing off with a couple more pictures from the meeting last night~~~
