Up earlier than usual this morning for another day of trail riding. Actually, we only had one tour today, but due to celebrations going on in town (Frederiksted) we had to get there almost an hour and a half early, to get the ride started and get back in town before the big parade started and trapped us in our lot. Riders all thankfully showed up a little bit early, we got them all signed in, loaded up and headed out. A couple of technical issues on the trail and one guy who just would not hold the pace, made us run a little bit late – but we worked through everything, got the machines cleaned, gassed up and put away for more fun on Monday morning and managed to get out of there just in the nick of time. I don’t like operating under those kind of conditions, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. It all worked out. It’s all good…………..
Back to mid island – we did a little bit of running for essentials for the weekend….. booze, smokes, milk and Actifed. How’s that for a combo ? A handful of drinks, a bite to eat and I’m ready for a shower and some shut eye. I have got a 2-tank dive scheduled for in the morning~~~ Yay~!!! So I’ll be able to get some nice underwater shots for you for a change. Sunday I have volunteered to be a safety diver for the Dolphin Swim down at the pier. It is a youth group here on the island that do an annual swim from the pier to Rainbow beach (about a mile or so swim) We stage along the pier to make sure everybody gets off and way from the pier safely, then we use the rest of our air to dive around the pier. I think I am bringing a couple of refuse bags with me and will use my time cleaning the bottom. The last storm that blew through here really junked up the ocean floor.
For now though, time for a shower and maybe some Longmire before I call it a night……..
Today is our ‘baby’s’ birthday (Jeni) ….. 31 big years~! Happy Birthday Honeybear. I Love You~!
