Rainy Day

2015-01-11

A stop into the Treehouse to visit with our FortWayne pals, before the beach.
As we visit, the rains fall and the pitons disappear…
Had a super fun visit at the Treehouse and didn’t make it to the beach…

Returned to the Villa to welcome the cosmics and country mice…
Power outages do not deter from a fun reunion.
Dinner prepared in the dark – with flashlights and candles…lovely.

Grateful today for
the safe arrival of the cosmics and country mice,
FortWayne saving us from the power outage with food from town, ice and beer,
and for the power coming back on in time for dinner.

Giddy Up!

2015-01-04

Hanging out today with Simon and Shaun on Giddy Up
A swim at Anse Cochon, lunch at Chateau Mygo,
And a final swim by the pinnacles before returning to Soufriere.

Back at the villa…
the scrabble game from 2 nights ago continues,
dinner is made after the sun sets…and the blues plays on…

Grateful today for
Simon – grateful to call him friend,
for GavRadio in person and on ipod,
and a wonderful day of sun, sea and sky.

Malgretoute

2015-01-02

Following a few work related phone calls and emails,
we venture out for lunch at Martha’s Tables.
Martha is taking the day off…
Plan B – lunch under the mango tree. Perfect.

A swim at Harmony Beach – so changed over the years…
From being completely local with grazing cows to today.
Freedom Bay construction in the background and more tourists on the beach than we’ve ever seen.

Grateful today for
plan Bs,
memories of all the times spent here,
and for all the beautiful nature that remains in spite of all.
