Rex and I had a Sunday morning walk on the beach and met up with Ms. Ann who happened to be walking Rex's playmates, Trio and Fergus.
They had lots of fun and now a completely exhausted Rex has passed out on the porch.
Now he will have a bath and then enjoy a relaxing afternoon as I take advantage of a flat-calm cloudless Sunday and do some boating.

Sunset walk on the beach

How romantic is that! A sunset walk on the beach with a dog! And tough to get a picture of too. But it was a beautiful evening on the turtle-nesting beach with about 15 nests so far.
And Rex the chick-magnet came through for me finally! And he is quite proud of the fact too. Mmmmmm...

Paper Canadians

Being completely unaccustomed to extreme heat, my paper Canadians have had to employ intersting strategies to adjust. Such as playing under the sprinkler and
... sleeping outside on the deck.A visit to the waterpark with some real Canadians (Tanya and Rod's children) also helps.
For the birthday boy, a ride on a train with Grandma was meant to be relaxing but low and behold they were robbed at gunpoint!

Luckily cousin Devon is now big enough to take good care of them. I just can't wait for them to get back to the "land of soft fresh breezes"! :-)

The Storm in Little Cayman

I broke down and bought another camera. So back to blogging. It was a very rough flight over, but just before we arrived the skies cleared over Little Cayman. We could both smile after feeling like puking for 40 minutes.
The first day the weather was nice and we spent the day fishing. And of course relaxing afterward. Went almost around the island and a fantastic boat trip only made better by the fact we did well fishing too!
We even caught some nice crabs in the evening.
The meals were first class. Here our freshly caught fish prepared "Brown-stew" by Chef Gary.
Then Tropical Storm Dolly put a damper on the fishing, but not on our fun. Very windy conditions and high waves but very little rain. Notice the"mangrove club" is surrounded by water. The boat also pulled anchors and fortunately came ashore right on the beach. Got lots of rest, ate way too much. Nice flight home this evening and back to the many tasks at hand...

Rex and I enjoying coffee outside on a warm Sunday morning but missing the rest of the family. Luckily we had Nana for company two mornings in a row. Hope everyone is enjoying their time in Canada.

Dad, dog and kitchen

Last day of my "vacation look"! Back to clean shaven on Monday.
Rex and I had a nice evening swim in the pool, then he had a nice bath and enjoyed having some company. He really misses his three playmates. So do I.
Got up some hurricane shutters, also replaced the kitchen fans and fixed the light! Yes, and then cleaned up the mess after the picture was taken.

Canada and Cayman

H & H are safely at Grandma's in Canada as of this afternoon, enjoying the cool temp's and fresh fruits and veggies!
I continued my decking project with the help of Carol pretty much all day today sweating profusely and starving from the total absence of food in the house!

Bits & pieces

Now that I am without a camera, I am limited in my selection of photos. This is Jenn and Hayley from our Little Cayman trip.
And the boys; me, Colin and Paul busy watching TV at Pub Quiz Night!
