An accomplishment…. finally~

Shortly after I posted lasted night, we went out for a smoke – and compliments of light from a 3/4 full moon – I saw a turtle sitting at the edge of the water. I asked the guys next door to turn their light off (which they did) and as soon as the light went off – up she came. Beautiful Green Sea turtle – I’m guesstimating she was 150-175 lbs. Definitely not the biggest we’ve seen, but not a little one either. I resisted the urge to try and get pictures of her and just let her be to do her thing. We watched her crawl to where she felt was the right place and started digging. Over the next several hours, we went and watched her progress. On our last trip out before bed time, she was gone. The way the sand was situated and the amount of time she spent – I am satisfied she laid eggs~! Yay~!!

After a small tasty breakfast, my Queen and I headed out for the South side of the island to pick up paperwork for DD 2.0. After a classic island arrival time of saying when she’d be there, the young lady showed up and in a matter of minutes (and $217.00) I had a new registration, new inspection sticker and a new title to DD 2.0. She is officially ours now! And we finally get to cross something off of the ‘get-R-done’ list……. it’s about friggin time~! Hopefully more to come this coming week that we can get knocked out and finally get caught up to do some other stuff waiting in the wings. We had to make several small pit stops, store, drug store etc. and burned up another hour or so while Angie argued with the guy at the drug store about pricing. Some kind of crap and the insurance not working or something…. but we’re apparently going to have to wait for the long weekend to get over before we can address that~~

Nothing planned for tomorrow……Sunday Fun day here on the island and most beaches are a lot more crowded than we like to deal with, so the weekend is usually our time to stay in and avoid folks  🙂 Gonna stop here and get up some more dive pictures (some really good ones coming up!)

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~!!!! ;-)
