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!

TS Elsa

Elsa is slated.to move more north of Grand Cayman now, but Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are still on the edge of the cone. Today is looking pretty good weather-wise and I think I’m going to risk a scooter ride to work. Hope it doesn’t rain on me!

It’s a long weekend coming up with a holiday Monday. I think it’s the last Cayman holiday until November.

Have a good weekend!

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!

Glad I’m Not Camping!

Easter weekend in Cayman, many people go camping on the beach. This morning is high winds from the north, and steady rain.

Glad I’m not out there camping. Last year, we weren’t allowed, because of covid. So I guess a lot are this year.

I suppose it will get nice again by the end of the day.

Have a good long weekend!

Greetings From Udine!

Today we depart Udine, after finally meeting my Pen Pal of over a decade and a half.

Giorgio wrote a letter to Radio Cayman, looking for a pen pal. Our accounts/HR officer gave the letter to me, asking if I was interested. I wrote back and the rest is history!

It has been wonderful spending time here and meeting Giorgio and his family. We have enjoyed their hospitality immensley! They picked us up at the train station and took us sightseeing. We have not needed a taxi once in Udine.

I hope we meet again soon!

Udine in general is a beautiful town, I personally, think it kicked Romes butt!

Kinda Friday

Tomorrow and Monday are holidays here. Weather’s supposed to be good, .. Bring the weekend!

Got up and went running/walking this morning. I went down a new beach path, in the dark. I’ll have to go back and check it out later.

First Post Of 2016!!!

Focus on the good, not the bad! (my original title was “First Workday of 2016”.)
Today’s going to be a hot, sunny day and I’m going to the beach at lunchtime! It’s early morning and Crux is high in the sky.
Here’s some pics from the long weekend:

My visiting Navy friend Jeff at East End.

My brother in law’s sidewalk marker for diving each and every East End dive site. This is MUCH more prestigious than an actor  having a star on the sidewalk in Hollywood.

The first sunset of 2015, there was also a green flash.

And a new, experimental collage, made using my phone! ☎

Have a good day, a good week, and a good year!
