Good times

Have you ever seen such a happy puppy? This is what Turbo looks like after a fun filled morning at the beach. 

We took advantage of the early hour and headed to Ferry Landing beach before it got crowded. 

This is why they call it Ferry Landing. 

Ahhhhhh, we had the whole beach to ourselves.

Banana Watch - Day 114 - The End.

Finally!!!! Who knew it took  almost four months for bananas to ripen. All that watching and waiting is just to high-maintenance for me.  

So it was decided today was the day.  I said, "bring out the machete." Any day my husband gets to use a machete is a good day.  

Hummm, they sure are small. 

Small but tasty. They have a very mild banana flavor. Maybe because our soil does not have many nutrients.   Now we just need to figure out what to do with them and fast. I think we let them over ripen a bit. 

I hope you enjoyed our banana saga.

GTMO Queen

Last week we went on the GTMO queen for a going away party. I was able to get these two shots. Enjoy!

Labor Day or Bust

Today we kayaked to Hicacal, once again, to get some exercise and find nice shells.

This is the best place for shells. We never go home empty handed. 

The bright orange shells are called fighting conch. They are my favorite. 

This is a crab.

This is a jellyfish. 

This is a crab eating a jellyfish.

This is another crab eating another jellyfish. 

Yet another jellyfish being devoured. 

Are you beginning to see a pattern?

Two crabs fighting over a jellyfish. I'm telling you it was a total blood bath. Only Jellyfish don't have blood. 

This one was lucky enough to get away. Unfortunately, he got away by washing up on shore.  Doh!

Today I saw two sting rays, countless crabs, hundreds of jellyfish, lots of fish, and four dolphins. All and all, not a bad day.
