Yes. That's a 65 lb. fur baby literally in my lap. What you can't see or hear is her shaking like a leaf and literally crying and whimpering like a little baby. A few times she's forgotten that I'm here and when the thunder wakes her up from sleeping on my bed, she jumps up and just starts howling. Like something straight out of the 101 Dalmations barking chain. Then I call her and she comes bounding into the living room into my lap and tries to make herself as small as possible. Such a tough life for a city pup...
But today, we FINALLY got to enjoy a day in paradise. It was a quintessential gorgeous day at Taino Beach today and Michelle and I went down and lounged on the beach and watched the regatta that's going on this weekend. It was so picturesque! Like something from a movie set. See for yourself:
Gorgeous right?!? The boats and the beach...not necessarily the legs. But I'll tell ya, I am intensely proud of my Bahamian tan! It has been many moons since I was this tan, and it feels really good to not be able to see through your skin! ;) Anyhoo, we had a nice afternoon today. The Bahamians are really not into the boat end of the regatta (that was my favorite part...minus the start pistol that made me want to hit the pavement in preparation for a gang war...). The Bahamians get into the party after the sun goes down (I can actually hear their music right now and they're about a half mile up the road...), but they were nice enough to provide us with a few lounge chairs and an umbrella that just made today perfect.
We also banked on some pretty amazing pieces of beach glass! I am REALLY excited to get home and do some antique shopping (Bernice and Nicole will be very disappointed by that statement I'm sure...). I'm looking for a few antique fobs so that I can do this with my beach glass for a few ADKOF pieces:
I cannot wait to do this. What a neat concept! At any rate...we are headed to Taino tomorrow assuming the weather stays gorgeous again. In honor of the fact that we are halfway done with this semester and officially only have 7 weeks left before we're home, I've started a ticker over here on the right -->. Almost there!!
