Mostly so I have something to do with my pictures I think..Plus I am quite bored this afternoon of doing data entry.
Even though the view out my window for doing it is pretty darn good! Getting up to go to the bathroom at 6 AM means I actually get to catch some sunrises. I grab my camera blindly, without any glasses on, and point it outside. Totally forgetting about closing the screen door while I am doing it and letting in, oh about a billion mosquitoes. That promptly bite me. And since they are spraying about every area here for Dengue Fever Mosquito’s, I think of that all the time!

And no, I could not figure out which one I liked best, that is why there is 3 pictures in here…

I have a friend next door. This bird says HELLO to me all the time. He is actually quite cute, although I run when he gets too close to me as I hear he thinks he is friendly, but then likes to bite!
Thought he was hiding from me here!
He thinks he is cute
This bird is my friend from next door. But he bites!
I had Turtle Doves fighting outside my window yesterday morning as well, and a friendly little Gecko who lives in the house. Quite different then living on the boat! I do not like the large Bush Cockroaches when they come visit though…I can deal with the small ones.
I was waiting for my husband to make room in the back of the SUV last night, so took a few pictures of the flowers for my mother. She likes flowers. I understand they have snow in Victoria (which is why I don’t live in Canada!) we had a perfect night. The palm trees and sky are because I like them.
One last picture flower
For my mother. Apparently they have snow in Canada, go figure! That is why I live here…

Outside looking up last evening
Front Door Clanger
I like the fish clanger on the front door!
We made our way down to Nanny Cay on about the worlds worst roads to pick up our friends Rhonda and Cam, and then drove across the island back to East End to hit Red Rock Restaurant for dinner. I wanted to show them the new favorite I had. It was either that or Pusser’s, as the last time I went to Capriccio’s I ran screaming from the amount of mosquito bites I received!
Food is very good here.
Red Rock: Chocolate Mousse & Ice cream
Yes, our friend Cam looks like a cow slurping the cud in this picture!
In a predictable move, I had chicken schnitzel one more time…
This looked GREAT, and smelt even better
and his calzone main dish…
Red Rock- Lamb chops. This was Bazzas appetizer!
Red Rock- Potato and Cheese soup
Off to my favorite Red Rock Restaurant for dinner again last night!
If it looks like we had rather a lot of food last night, it could be because we did. Since we only have A/C in the bedroom in town, my cooking skills in the condo amount to warming up nachos in the microwave. Truly. Several times a week. And microwave popcorn. We enjoyed every last morsel!
This is the Bay outside of Penn’s Landing last night. Very flat seas after horrendous winds and seas all week..
Fat Hogs Bay Last night
I could not resist this. I just about choked when I saw Baz come out of the bedroom with this get up one day this week…I know he is just painting and spraying his boat in the boat yard this week, but holy hell…!
you know you are a redneck when…I would not be seen in public with him!
Sometimes he cares, sometimes not. Going out for dinner last night the only socks he could find that were clean without going out to the boat (or sorting through the clean laundry…go figure) were my colorful anklet socks. He turned his nose up at those and instead wore the frigging compression socks for airplanes that about go up to your thighs rolled down by his ankles! I am not sure who married him….
That about covers my life, finally after more then a month have gotten caught up with updating the info from the Tortola Boat Show into my database. It never ends!
And so ends another afternoon in the British Virgin Islands!
