Woke up to heavy gray clouds and rain this morning….. normally gone in 20 minutes or so, but this looked to be set in – which did not bode well for folks fixin’ to spend the day riding around on four wheelers on a mountain top. Oh well, these tours rarely ever get cancelled because of weather, so I accepted the fact I was gonna be wet and muddy most of the day. I could not have been any more accurate. First two tours of the day – it rained off and on through out the entire tour and while it greatly diminished some of the views we normally get to take in from the second highest point on the island – it apparently did not dampen the spirit of our guests. Most of them loved the fact they were soaking wet and splattered with mud. There were a couple of ‘complaints’ of being chilly (after all it had dropped down to the low 70°’s) 😉 The last tour of the day, the sun did manage to break out, but it didn’t make it any dryer…. albeit warmer – but am I satisfied all three tours enjoyed themselves.
Back at the office after the last tour – it decided to start pouring again while we were washing the bikes off. I can say in all honesty – that is the wettest I have been in YEARS~! As an avid motor cycle rider that has ridden more than his fair share in inclement weather – I have always maintained, you can only get so wet. Today made me question that a little bit. But – bikes washed, filled with gas and put away for the night – I collected my Queen and crawled my soggy a$$ into the truck for a long quiet ride home.
Back here, finally dry…… belly full of a wonderful plate of spaghetti my Bride cooked up for us, 2 or 6 drinks – I am once again looking forward to a hot shower and some shut eye. Tomorrows weather is forecasting more rain (woo–hoo~!) but then we get a day off and our schedule lightens up a bit after that…… and we’ll soon be able to get back to our retired type of life style. We have a day or two of “hard labor” getting the place cleaned up for our next visitor (Daughter Stephanie and her two boys) – but that won’t be that big of a deal as are both amped to see them.
So for now — some trail pictures… a couple of weather pictures…… and we’ll see what tomorrow brings.
Good Night Ya’ll # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # Thankx for stopping in~!
