sunday at the beach
i awoke this morning to the sound
of roosters crowing and dogs barking
and woodpeckers pecking
and i sighed.
i love sundays
i think it may be the best day of the week for me
we made our way over to the eastside of the island
to go to church
we go to an island church
we are the only regular gringos that attend there
let me tell you there is nothing like a big hug
from those warm hearted people
good to be missed
good to be back
after church carlos our gardener came over
that's the way we roll here
i gave him the gifts i got for him in canada
he was sooo surprised when he saw
that i bought him an mp3 player
i thought he was going to cry for a second there
it isn't a big fancy one or anything
but i know that he loves music and it will
be great for him to work and be able to listen
to some tunes
after lunch we headed to west bay
my cheek was kissed too many times to count
good to see everyone again
sunday is beach day for many people
we love to go and connect
and sit in the shade
yes the sea was a lovely temperature
was good to see the underworld again
although my mask is leaking and fogging up
we saw an enormous sting ray
it was about 5 feet across: HUGE!
and lots of fish
no turtle but that was because i didn't go out
to the wall where they like to dwell.
it's all good though.
then we picked up buddy, my budgie, from laura's.
great to see her again
great to hold little buddy and get yet again,
such a sweet bird.
the best bird ever.
i went to bed to the sounds
of geckos, and frogs
and enjoyed the cool breeze that caressed me while
