Free French Fries

Went to movie night with the wife last night. It was good. I’ve been maybe 10 times, Every time I order food I request the salad instead of French fries. Only once have I got the salad as requested. When the waiter brings it I say “I’m sorry, but I ordered salad, not fries,” and he checks his notes, finds I did indeed request salad instead of fries, apologizes, brings me a salad and I have free French fries. If I posted this on Trip Advisor, they would fix it immediately and you would never get free fries again, so don’t tell anybody. So if you want free French fries go to the Westin movie night and ask for the salad with your Burger. You might get free fries you might not.

Last night the movie was Dirty Dancing. I had seen it before. It was a really good crowd who was “Interacting” with the movie. ” Nobody puts Baby in the corner” And it was windy on the beach and the wind blew the inflatable movie screen over twice. The crowd cheered and went wild. It was a fun night.

Today is Friday and yesterday was payday.. I have to pay bills.

Tomorrow is works Family Fun Day at the beach. Normally I wouldn’t go but now it’s like “hell yeah!” People and food!

Have a great weekend!

The Crab With Eggs

The other day I saw this crab climbing the wall. I went to take a picture and then noticed the eggs underneath. I wonder what she’s going to do with those eggs, and if I’m going to have a trillion baby crabs around here in a little while. She was gone that afternoon when I got home from work, without a trace.

Tonight is movie night at the Weston. I have a date with the wife. I am picking her up at her apartment.

It’s almost Friday!

Random Fridayness

Two Spotted Eagle Rays inside the house

Itsa FRIDAY! It rained last night and it’s lighting-ey this morning.

Above in the picture are two spotted eagle rays. I had one, and had the other and decided to take a picture of them both.

Last night I considered going to Movie Night, but went outside and it was raining. Later, I checcked the Westin webcam and movie night looked like I was missing a good one. But a few minutes after I took this screenshot, I looked again and there were water droplets all over the camera. So it did rain at movie night after the below picture was taken. I don’t even know what the movie was anyway. Someone else told me that Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco Malfoy was there.

And it’s Friday, The only thing planned for the weekend are more house repairs (electrical) and lunch with the wife.

Have a good weathered weekend!

Me On The Westin Webcam

I went to movie night last night. It was good. When I got there, I noticed the Westin Webcam, which I sometimes use as a weather/wave check.

It will frequently rain in town and not northern 7 Mile Beach or West Bay. Since I was on the Westin wifi, I did a screen grab of me on the camera.

It could be a nice hobby, traveling the world and collecting selfies on webcams. I have a picture of myself on the Akumal and the Macabuca webcams. And now the Westin. I noticed that the Westin webcam had a big 10 second time delay by the way. (That rhymes.)

There was also a nice sunset before the movie, which started instantaneously when the sun dipped below the horizon.

Have yourself a wonderful weekend!

The Abandoned Kayak


This kayak has been sitting here at my secret lunchtime beach for an easy six months. Probably much longer. it used to be used by the submarine company Atlantis Submarines to paddle out to their submarines. The submarines are a long gone, I think they’ve been sold. But the kayak remains. (Technically speaking I think one was a submarine and the other was a glass bottom boat, but I think they’re both gone) I have 2 kayaks which I have not used in a long time, This kayak is like the 1st kayak I ever bought, a Malibu 2. Therefore its value is sentimental only, but it must be a very old kayak that deserves to be cared for and loved.

I’m not even sure this place is still here.

Tonight at movie night is “Die Hard“. I’ve been told the food prices have gone up because technically now the hotel is open, but I’m going anyway.

Tomorrow is Friday, hip hip hooray! Have a good day. (That rhymes)

Sea Swim!

I’m in! I swam the half mile (800m) twice this week, not knowing about the above pictured swim. I finished both times, but didn’t do the freestyle racing stroke the whole way. But I know I can finish in the 40 minute allotted time (easily). I haven’t done a sea swim in a long, time. Plus, I could use a new t-shirt!

Went to movie night last night, it was ooo-kay. Casino Royale, the newer one. I thought the card game at the end was too long. Plus James Bond kept going outside and getting killed, except he wasn’t quite dead. He’d come back to life, clean himself up, and everyone was surprised when he showed back up at the card table in his tux.

And I’m glad it’s Friday, as I always am. Have a good weekend!

Stuck In Suez

As you probably already know, the Panamanian-flagged container vessel MV Ever Given is stuck in the Suez Canal, turned sideways in low visibility and high winds.

Some say weeks to free her, Egypt says they’ll have her out over the weekend. The news says this disruption in shipping will have a planetary effect.

We’ll all find out.

From what I’ve read the past few days, about 40 ships a day pass through the Suez Canal, at about $350,000 USD . The price is based on the cost of going around South Africa.

It will be interesting to watch this unfold.

Happy FRIDAY! We had tacos and I also had a big burger last night. I think we’re pretty much going to be regulars at the Westin Movie Night from now on.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Movie & Taco Night

Last night we went to movie night at the Westin. More importantly, they had tacos. Every Thursday, for the past little while, they’ve been showing an old movie on the beach. Last night was the first time the wife and I went. It was really nice and the tacos were really good. There were fish, shrimp, pumpkin and chicken. Chicken won in my book, but all were good.

The movie was one with Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz, My Best Friends Wedding. It was ok. I had never seen it before and we left a little before the end to get some frozen yogurt and make a quick stop at the grocery store. Next Thursday is Dirty Dancing, and if you know my wife, you know we won’t miss that one.

And now it’s FRIDAY!

♬ ♫ Yeay it’s Fri-hi-day! The weekend’s here! We’ll relax! (hallelujah, hallelujah!) And take off our slacks! (hallelujah, hallelujah!) And sit around the house in our rotten underwear!♫

Have a good weekend!
