Entirely too tired…………….

Another day of wandering around under the waves in water that is JUST about to become to cool to be comfortable. Up early and on the boat by 08:15 and a long motor to our first dive site. Captain Morgan, which is a favorite because of the topography…. I was the first over the side of the boat and Lawsy was that water brisk…. woooo-weee. It only took a second to adapt to it – but it was a chilly second…. Fun dive, with some [small] Lobsters….. a couple of uncooperative sharks but still lots to look at and take pictures of. Every shot I take is a learning lesson for me and I’m starting to get excited as I am beginning to understand what I need to do and where to set my strobes for the picture I want (before actually taking the picture).  I did manage to find me my most favorite critter (Giant Green Moray Eel) and got a couple of nice shots along with a video for you all. I just hope I kept it short enough to load on here……….

Please be aware – I have been drinking for the last 4 hours and it’s all I can do to keep my eyes open…… My Bride made me a drink as soon as I got home and I have been drinking regularly since….. yes – she held a gun to my head and made me drink. Even with a Spark and a big ole plate of spaghetti…… my get up and go has done laid down and quit…… so if this winds up short – you’ll know why……. as if that should be a big surprise to any of you by now…….

Stepped outside for a smoke with my Queen  to watch a gorgeous sunset in process and to [hopefully] wake my happy a$$ up a little bit….. only to watch our whole end of the island grow instantly dark and quiet. Yup….. our power company [WAPA] at their finest… no, wind, no rain, no adverse conditions of any kind…… and we lose power….. Ahhh Island Life. I’m typing now on battery power and hopefully get power and internet back in time to send this out tonight……

I did manage a couple of shots today that I like/am proud of and will put them up here……. I have decided [with my Queen’s blessing] that I need to dive again tomorrow… so hopefully more fun pictures for you~! For now, here in the quiet darkness of our humble little abode… I may crash early in preparation for 2 more dives tomorrow…… dammit emmit……   😉

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~!!!! ;-)
