Monday December 15- I got up in time to go watch the sunrise. It was a beauty. Its just a quick walk to the beach to witness this every morning. Since the tanks are empty I decided to go ahead and get the laundry done. It was a perfect day for drying outside. While the clothes are drying we loaded the kayaks up on the carts and headed to the beach. The waters are calm enough and the suns shining. We headed out to the mangroves to see if we could catch us some snapper. The waters pretty shallow out there and as we were casting into the mangroves I got a scare. There was a huge stingray that decided to take off and circled my kayak. So I was in a circle of flying sand. It was a good day on the water. We caught some fish but nothing to keep. We had a good time looking at these crazy iguanas and any other critters we could spot.
Tuesday December 16- Jeff got up and went for a bike ride. Across the street from the park there is a bike bath. Its really nice and no need to worry about traffic. The hard part is getting across the street. I decided to make some Christmas treats. I started with caramels. Jeff took his kayak back out and I stayed back. I went to the beach and worked on finishing a book. I tried to get on my new computer...its windows 8 so I don't know what I'm doing and Jeff's not used to windows 8 either. It's very aggravating...will I ever learn?
Wednesday December 17- Jeff got up and rode his bike over to check out his snorkeling spot. He wanted to see how rough the water was. He came back and said he was going back with his snorkeling stuff. I had started defrosting the freezer so I finished that task up before heading over. We loaded up our bikes and made our way over. Jeff got in the water, I stayed on the shore watching him. He said he saw lots of neat critters. Even an octopus. He spotted some lobsters but they were small and he didn't have enough weight on his weight belt to get down. When we got back I went to the beach for awhile. Jeff worked on replacing the cable on his drive system for his kayak. We got the dogs out for a walk around the loop. We watched a movie. We don't have any over the air TV so we are drawing from our movie library.
Can't believe our first week here is over...such good weather and so much to do...bring on week 2.
