|Tastes like.... chicken?!|
We have other friends keeping an eye on the blog and sending things our way too. Like, Oliver for one. Our SSB hasn't been transmitting as well as it ought to and a few conversations with Oliver later we had a hand me down ICOM tuner that matches our ICOM radio. Thanks Oliver!
|New ICOM tuner.... now we can talk to friends far away.|
|Solar everything... comes on at sunset|
|Homemade yogurt, with my homemade granola, of course!|
Our days have been starting with some variation of the following conversation:
Skip/Me: So.... d'you want to go somewhere today?
Me/Skip: I don't know.... d'you?
Skip/Me: I don't know. Where would we go?
Me/Skip: I don't know.
Skip/Me: How about a swim?
Me/Skip: Hmmmm... seems like a lot of work.
Skip/Me: It does, doesn't it? Maybe later....
To be fair, we have moved from the BVI (where the blog last left off) to the USVI, and then back to the BVI, but that's about it. We spent a few days on the south side of St John, which we haven't done since we first came here back in 2011, and this time we hiked trails from Little Lameshur Bay up to the petroglyphs. The petroglyphs are carved into rocks above a spring fed pool in the hills and according to the info near the site, they are thought to have been left here between 900 and 1500 AD by pre-Columbian Tainos and their ancestors.

|Bonus this year... Skip gets his national park senior citizens pass which gives us half priced moorings in St John! Yikes.|
