We are getting fun & happy email updates from home: Miss M's header goal yesterday and 2 league cup wins today (we're moving on!)!
Lando's making progress on college applications! Deev's going to church retreat & starting high school soccer. C's new baby brother's safe arrival.
And some NOT as good updates from the Tennessee Bakers - their house as sprung a MAJOR leak... I am SO sorry (prayed for you on our deck these last couple of mornings.
Missing the family, but still happy to be on vacation! MAN!, we need it! And MAN, are we making the most of it!
Dad (Dar) went to a meeting on Hawksnest beach... pretty cool location! Mom (S) woke up and prayed and did Bible study and then went for a walk (felt good - I am missing my regular walking!!!). When Dad got back, we packed and went to Trunk Bay. This is the most crowded, touristy beach on the island (where all the day-trippers want to come), frequently voted one of the TOP beaches in the entire Caribbean. It was pretty, true... but, it was crowded... and we didn't think it was any prettier than any of the other beaches we have been on this week.
We met a couple who moved to the island 3 years ago. He started his own welding business (he said they NEED another good, hardworking, honest appliance repair man on the island) and she works at a restaurant. I think it takes courage (or stupidity) to just up and leave everything you have known and move to another world (they were from Ohio).
We drove through town in search of a coffee drink. the only shop selling them was closed (boo!). We went and got pizza & greek salad to go (to take home). While waiting, we met to 25 year old girls who had just arrived 2 weeks prior to work for 5 months before heading home to Martha's Vineyard. (Oh, to by young and adventurous and brave!)
On our way back home, we stopped and booked our trip to the other islands for Tuesday. And we got some rubbing alcohol to pour in my ears (water).
I am up to 100+ mosquito bites (but who's counting?).
But I have been FORCING myself to eat RAW garlic for the last 3 days. And although I do not smell too good (I'm sure), I don't think I am getting any new bites.
We watched our nightly movie and ate our pizza.
Heading to bed now.
