Yesterday I loaded up the kayak and went looking for the wreck I saw from the air. At first I didn’t think I’d find it, but after I got out to the wrong buoys, I saw the right one. It was a big wrecked sailboat.
After that I paddled out to the inside of the reef, very close to the wrecks at Wreck of The Ten Sail, the site where a sailing fleet wrecked a couple hundred years ago. The wreck you see here is NOT from those sailing ships.
It was a great day!
Today is the last day of my vacation, tomorrow it’s back to work.
Went to the beach yesterday, it was great. Supposed to get cloudier later today. The wife is taking her old car to get the convertible top changed, then she’s going to sell it. I’m driving her new car with my bicycle in the back, she’ll take the new car, and I’ll ride home on the bike.
That’s the plan.
On the news, Conan Obrian is taking over the Tonight Show from Jay Leno. I remember it was just the other day when Jay Leno took it over from Johnny Carson.
Although I meant to, I never got around to watching the show with Jay Leno. I saw Johnny Carson often enough.
I was working when Leno took over and I’m still working now. It would be nice to make enough to retire someday. Can’t see it happening for me. I’ll probably be working till the day I die. At least I can go to the beach at lunch!
HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!!!!!
UPDATE! I just found out Jimmy Fallon is taking over, not Conan O’Brian. Sorry for the fuckup. To my knowledge, I never saw Fallon or Conan on TV either.
Well, Monday is gone. now it’s Tuesday. payday is day after tomorrow.
Last night we went to dinner at Macabuca. It was pretty good food and there was a nice sunset.
Yesterday in town it rained hard almost all day. West Bay didn’t get drop. I couldn’t go on my beach lunch yesterday because of the rain and I was on the scooter. Now it’s nice and clear but I wonder it’s going to rain again today. 30 percent chance haha!
We’ve had a new coffee maker now for about a week. I suppose it makes acceptable coffee. It is one of those Keurig kinds with the canister.
My studying has been going extremely slow. I’m afraid I’m going to have to get up even earlier in order to study and accomplish anything.
That’s it for today. Have a terrific Tuesday!
I’m sleepy this morning, stayed up late watching Monday Night American Football, Jets at Atlanta. Jets won, which is what I wanted.
I didn’t plan on staying up, but the game was really good. Jets were ahead the whole game, with Atlanta right on their asses, then Atlanta pulled ahead at the very end, then Jets won with a field goal with three seconds left
After the alarm went off this morning, I laid there for a second thinking “this must be Wednesday, this week’s been too long already.” Then I remembered Football and thought “Oh yeah, Tuesday.”
It’s all good though, we’ve been having a patch of good weather, beach snorkeling lunches, can’t complain.
I guess that’ll do ‘er for today. Have a good day!

Governor’s beach after work
I got not much to post today, so here’s some pictures from yesterday. Looks like rain today….
The Wife and I went out to lunch today, after we power washed the house and decks. After that, on impulse, we went to a boat show at Harbor House Marina. They were raffling off a cute little boat. My wife asked me if I’d like to win a boat, and I said “Not really, but I would like one of those hats.” (everyone was wearing Harbor House Marina hats.) We went back inside and I found where they were giving the hats away, right next to where they were selling raffle tickets. The Wife bought a raffle ticket.
Then we went outside and there were hamburgers and stuff and a whole lot of people. Then came the drawing, we were so far away we couldn’t hear, so we went closer, just in time for the grand prize drawing, the boat. I went in shock when they called my name. I was zombified. I turned to look at the Wife and she was all excited, jumping up and down. I didn’t know she put the ticket in my name.
So they’re delivering the boat on Monday, I’m still in shock. I can’t wait to go out on it.
If I was going to buy a boat, it would be a boat just like the one we won.
Seems like it was a busy weekend, Saturday The Wife and I went on errand runs. I went looking for materials to build a chicken coop, but ended up getting a good rabbit hutch that seems perfect for our little chickies.
Sunday I went to the beach, mowed the yard and smoked a cigar in the evening.
Let me ‘splain something to you about chickens. A chicken can run much faster, and is much more maneuverable in grass that is relatively knee high as opposed to grass that is over their heads. After cutting the grass, I let the chickens out for a walk, and couldn’t catch them. I had to call The Wife for help, and we ended up netting them with a towel. I caught the first two, no problem, but by then the second pair knew I was after them, and I didn’t stand a chance.
Then we watched a movie and went to bed.
Have a good week!
