It’s 6:07 AM, I’m ready to go to work already. Usually I’m not ready till after 6:30 or so, at the earliest.
Got up, shaved, walked, showered,dressed, coffeed, it’s all there.Maybe I went through s time warp.
Yesterday at lunch, I swam out to the island again. It was very nice out there. I used to go camping out there, with my dog, Ditto. I was thinking about him a lot while I was there.
Here’s a selfie as I was ready to swim back.
The float you see behind me is a boogie board modified to be a freedivers float. I added handles all the way around, a diveflag holder, and I added an anchorpoint on the bottom, so one could tie it up so it won’t float away. Also there’s a way to secure things to the top, like my camera and waterproof bag. (Inside the waterproof bag is my towel and hat, and a waterproof box that has my car keys, phone, a cigar, and lighter.) I’ve had that float for at least 15 years, and the dive flag, I bought in Florida nearly 30 years ago, when I drove down to the Florida Keys by myself with my new kayak on the roof of my van. That was a great adventure!
This has kind of turned into a Flashback Friday post! Have a great weekend!
How long do you have for your lunch? Must be a good LONG one to be able to swim all the way out there AND have lunch! It looks glorious out there btw.
You have asked the question no boss has yet asked….
I get an hour for lunch, BUT. I go to work a half hour early, it takes 9 minutes to drive and be at the beach, on the sand, 10 minutes to swim to the island. I spent 30 minutes there, 10 to swim back, 10 or so minutes drying off, less than 9 minutes back. I generally take 90 minutes for lunch, I’ve never asked, I just do it, nobody has ever said anything. I always put in at least my 40 hours a week, so that I have a clean conscious…
At some point, I woof down a sandwich at my desk.
Also, if it’s cloudy or rainy, I don’t always go, and give extra time to the company.
