We head down to our little beach and what do we see but a large canopy set up with a group on the beach and playing in the water!! Luckily they were down from our palm tree and shade so we are o.k.
We naturally looked for sea glass and played in the water
It was a bit more wavy and windy today, but it was just great being here and enjoying it all.
MONDAY, we are back to the sea glass beach. Len was watching the little kids yesterday with their boogie boards and has decided to borrow the one from our place and give it a try. He says he will be some disappointed if it is so great and this is our last day at the beach and he could have been doing this for the past 2 months.
We of course have been looking for sea glass, on the Aguadilla side there are 5 people out there with strainers looking for the special pieces of glass. We don't even stop for a look there.
Len is walking ahead of me as he is loaded down with the backpack, his chair and the boogie board. I walk at my pace looking for glass and with my chair. When I meet up with him at the palm tree he shows me TWO pieces of red glass that he has found
Len takes the board and heads out to the waves. He tries, rides and playes for quite awhile. I take some pictures and then go for a walk down the beach. It is hot, very little wind, nice to walk in the water. There are quite a few pieces of glass, not smoothed by the waves and sand so I am careful where I walk. On my way back I see a piece or pinkie orange glass, it took me three tries before I picked it up. I didn't think I was going to catch it. It must be from a logo or picture on a bottle. Nice and I was eager to show it to Len. We had our lunch there, read our books and then packed up and went back to the car.
We walked out on a board walk by a pond. There was an older gentleman with binoculars, he was watching the birds and fish jump. We stopped and talked to him about the fish, he told us their name, and that they are protected. We watched they jumping out of the water. He them pointed out the trees and the almonds on them! Wow, we were so surprised, we hadn't really looked at the trees, nor noticed the big nut seeds on them. These trees are all along the roadway of the park. No one here today, so unlike all the families here having fun and playing yesterday.
On home for dinner, then to the casino, which was very user friendly last night.
Tuesday, our last day. We spend the time packing, throwing our collected junk out, cleaning, washing, eating the last things up, and waiting for time to pass.
We are going out to the Marriott for dinner, say good-bye to some of the people we met here and then wait for 1:00 a.m. to leave for the airport down the road. We have to go through US Department of Agriculture first, check-in and then wait for the 3:00 a.m. flight. It is only 2 hours and 55 minutes to touch down in Orlando. That is if all goes well. We are eager to move one, but sad to leave such a wonderful island behind.
You lovely island . . .
Island of tropical breezes.
Always the pineapples growing,
Always the coffee blossoms blowing . . .
