|I was sitting under one of the thatched roofs today|
Having just left Saskatchewan where it was -28C on Monday morning for the +28C of the Bahamas late Monday afternoon it has been a pleasant weather shock.
We had a quiet day on the beach.
I made some progress reading December Dread by Jess Lourey which is set in rural Minnesota in the cold weather of Christmas time. There is a special pleasure for someone from Saskatchewan in reading such a book on the beach.
I would read abit and then drift alittle and then people watch and then sea watch and then read some more.
There was a trivia contest with only myself and another man participating. I knew my odds were good when they pulled out the questions and answers from the original Trivial Pursuit game. I do well with the original. Not so well with the current versions. Knowing the Parthenon is on the Acropolis won me a Bahamas ball cap!
We have just come in from having supper at the Tiki Shack just down the beach from our resort. The cook was using half barrels for barbecuing and boiling. We sat at picnic tables on the beach watching the sun set and eating corn on the cob, rice and barbecued chicken and ribs. Two Bahama Mama’s complemented the meal. The evening was topped off by a big beach bonfire. All for $20.00 a person.
It has been a good day.
Further posts for the next couple of weeks may or may not be regular.
