Day After July 4th

It was a nice weekend, right up until today. Friday I went to dinner with my Friday night dinner club. Saturday I finished painting the roof (except I’m going to put another coat on.) And made it to the Annual Mango Fest in George Town.

I really wanted a Mango smoothie but for some reason they were gone, already finished. But I did have some good juices and bought a piece of art. Two Cayman Parrots.

I really like it.

Sunday, I finally made it to Ragazzi Pizza on the beach at Luca. It was my 4th time, but they had been closing early. Basically the advert was wrong. It was really good pizza and locale. I will be going back with friends.

After Luca, went to this little beach right in the middle of town. It has been calling me for weeks. So I went and found lots of sea glass. And I tried to take a video but instead got a series of pictures. Not sure what I did wrong, but the result was interesting.

Today is cloudy and rainy, Tropical Storm Elsa is to our north. We had heavy lighting and rain last night and this morning. Today, (bank holiday) looks lIke it’s going to be a write-off, which is OK in my book. Tomorrow will be sunny again, I hope.

Have a wonderful week!

Discovery Day 2021

Right now, on this date in the 1503, at the precise moment you are reading this, Christopher Columbus discovered the Cayman Islands.

It’s a bank holiday today, and I have the day off work. Instead, I will be doing houseworkand possibly yard work.

Have a wonderful week!

Second Monday

Yesterday was a holiday Wednesday for the election. Today seems like the second monday this week. Glad tomorrow is the second Friday this week. I am very tired right now. I closed my eyes and could have fallen asleep while walking the dogs this morning.

Here’s a picture of Ashy, our cat, taken yesterday. She’s resting up for bedtime.

I’ll be perusing the election results today, but at first glance this morning, seems like we did coulda done better.

Election Day (tomorrow)

Tomorrow is election day here in the Cayman Islands. I’m know who I’m voting for.

Last night we went to a rally for one of the candidates. Very lively and interesting.

I stayed up way late last night and got up way early. I am sleepy this morning.

Cloudy skies today, but probably won’t rain.

Ciao!

Not the best holiday

Back to work today after 10 days off, 4 vacation days, 2 holiday days and 4 weekend days. These last few days have been pretty poor.

Flew my first two flights on a Boeing Max 8. Didn’t crash.

Went to my friends funeral Saturday.

I did, after the funeral, have a very nice lunch at a very nice hotel.

.

Not the best of times for me, but you have a good week!

Indecision & Bad News

Not sure if I should go to my friends funeral. It’s on Cayman Brac, about a 80 mile airplane ride.

I guess I’ll probably go. “Always go to your friends’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours”, right? But I’m still not sure.

In other news, today is my last day of four vacation days. It was nice and relaxing but I didn’t get as much done around the house as I wanted. I didn’t dive because of the wind, and now it’s nice again. (another reason not to get on an airplane.)

In other news, Prince Phillip died this morning.

Long live the Queen!

Happy Summer!

Happy first day of summer! The longest day in the north, Shortest day in the south. First day of winter in tge southern hemisphere.
It starts at 5:34 Cayman time today

I like it better the two days the sun passes directly overhead in Cayman. It only happens in the tropics.

I got up this morning, walked to the sea and swam a little, walked home and showered, dressed, etc etc etc. Now I’m ready to go to work. Well, not ready, but I’m still going. My back still hurts when I bend over. Fon’t know what’s up, never hurt for this long before.

Well, have a good day, a good week and a good SUMMER!

Catch Restaurant

Last night The Wife and I went out to a newish restaurant called either ‘The Catch” or simply ‘Catch’. We were both pleased. The food was good, the service was impeccable. And the bill was much lower than I expected it to be.
