First full day…..

First full day aboard our boat…… I did manage to get some written about it on the boat…… so gonna leave it here with you and a LOT more pictures…… I have a dive function in the morning. Another group is hosting a Pier lean up dive and I enjoy helping out on those – so my Queen and I will be up early to go support that. In the meantime – I am putting up a lot more pictures up on here than I normally do, simply because I have so many to share with you all – I hope you enjoy them~

“2-17”

“After a mostly fitful night sleep for a multitude of reason I crawled out of our very small cabin and onto the deck to a beautiful sunrise that I got to sit in silence and enjoy while I smoked a cigarette. It took an hour or so before everyone else come poking out from below deck. We had a leisurely wake up followed by some very tasty breakfast tacos before heading around the island we were moored at our next destination. Jost Van Dyke – British Virgin Islands. A beautiful little port where we had to get signed in at the customs office and pay all applicable fees – which turned out to be a heckva lot more than any of us were expecting, but we got them out f the way and soon had jumped into the dinghy and headed into check out local bars and restaurants. Probably my favorite out of the bunch was a place called Corsairs… a pretty classic beach bar run by a couple of old hippie types guys. They made great drinks and had even better music playing. We sat there for a bit before going off to explore several other ‘recommended’ places. About 3 hours of sun sand, surf and lots of alcohol before our ride back out to the boat showed up. There was a ride we will all remember – 8 people in a small dinghy designed to hold 4 people…. At least it felt like it. We were riding low in the water in some pretty good waves and had a much longer ride back to the boat, as we had worked our way several miles down the island (via a taxi) —- We could have swam back to the boat and not been any wetter than we got on that boat ride back – but we laughed and had a good time with it. We stopped back at Corsairs one more time to dry out a bit before heading back out to the big boat.
Back on board more alcohol [except me – I had to weeny out….. I’ll tell you about it later] – a nice meal of Salmon, rice and veggies and now almost everybody with full bellies has crawled into their beds to sleep off a very long wonderful day and all are looking forward to what tomorrow brings. The boat sitting here rocking gently while I type this is starting to make me sleepy as well…… so gonna quit for the night.
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~!!!! ;-)
