Tigger on the left and Mango on the right – Mango is the elder of the two. And they are trouble.

the watchers trash bags

If they can get a paw into the cupboard with the trash bags – this is what will happen. Actually – Hannah says it can get worse. They can scatter (with the help of the lovely breeze) the cupboard full of trash bags ALL over the house!

The Sahara dust plume passing through creates some fantastic sunsets.

Sunday Afternoon Kayak

June 24th, 2007

Ted and Bekka enjoyed a short kayak…..


June 24 Kayak

Ted eventually kayaked down to Cane Bay – I drove down with all chairs and cooler…. Bnut and his kids met us down there for an afternoon of fun in the sun! We made our way up to Miss Norma’s and some Mama-Wannas – met up with Jeff and Shera and little Malia.

Can’t think of much to complain about!

Ted’s here!

June 22nd, 2007

Ted arrived today! He’s well and ready to get relaxed. Travel was not a problem. Hannah’s box of dive gear (last minute order she had sent to the Pittsburgh office for him to bring on down) arrived late – but intact.

We are off to dinner shortly. Tomorrow Ted and Hannah have a dive in the morning. Weather is beautiful.

I’ve been working pretty seriously on the vacant North Unit downstairs. Painting and minor repairs. I’ve had good help from Ollie and some from Hannah too – they took on the chore of painting the ironwork gate on the streetside. I’ve left Ted some “Honey-does” – both ceiling fan fixtures need some repair or replacement.




Riding off into the sunset…

June 20th, 2007

After working hard all day Tuesday at the vacant north unit (painting, cleaning, repairing…) I was off to Off the Wall for a sunset shot and a slice of pizza for dinner. Ollie and Hannah said to go along and they would follow up behind me.

Ollie eventually walks in to Off the Wall – but no Hannah – She was out across the road with Steve the Horse Guy going for a sunset ride!


Steve had called her just after I left the house and suggested a ride! How fun for her! They did literally ride off into the sunset – down to Cane Bay and just beyond.

We’re Back! (… well most of us are back….)

June 18th, 2007

Nimbus, Bekka and I are back on Island! We arrived Saturday noon to typical early summer weather – Warm, breezy, big white puffy clouds….. Oh – wait a minute – that’s pretty much typical weather all the time!

Ted arrives on Friday – I miss him.

B-nut had called earlier in the week and we made plans to meet at Savant for dinner Saturday evening – perfect! Dreads was cooking and came out to visit later. Bennet brought me a huge grocery sack of ripe mangos…… Sunday was spent making making fruit salad, mango scones and mango butter…. :)


There was a tiny little crescent moon setting into the ocean last night as I went to bed…


And as you can see – all’s as it should be….
