What? No Beach?!?!?!?

What a rude awakening this morning. I woke up and there was no ocean here! Oh, well. I guess it’s back to the grind. We had a wonderful time, and the past week was everything a vacation should be. We relaxed (read: we napped for at least two hours every day), we spent time together, we swam, we snorkled (here’s where I’m supposed to tell you that Kevin’s got a huge conch), we watched killer sunsets, we drank, we played cards, we got tans (well, Kevin got a sunburn, but at least he put on sunscreen this time. However, Elephant Lube took care of the sting), we drank, we slept, we swam, we drank….You get the idea.
As usual, Nipper’s was there for us in every way, from their yummy rum drinks, their tasty conch fritters, and their beautiful pool. We discovered a soda: Bravo. This is the most belch-inducing soda I’ve ever had, so naturally, when I belch, I now belch the word Bravo. Kevin had a few hilarious moments on the golf cart, which I’m sure the neighbors (and the boats docked in the Marina) appreciated.
We had the satellite hooked up on the third day, but except for a little afternoon TV time, we didn’t watch it at all. The evenings were spent out on the porch playing cards. Kevin is now most adept at Asshole, by the way, while Courtney and I fought it out for last place. Kailey was a little angel the whole time! She had a blast in the pool, and it seems that island life stimulated her appetite, since she almost out-ate everybody (well, except Brian).
This time next year, I’m sure we’ll be telling the same tales. Hopefully, Red, Rooster, and G-Man will come along for a little island adventure! In the meantime, be sure to check out the pictures.

    If you think it’s tough adjusting to no beach, you should try having to go to work today! 🙁

    Ohh…I see. You weren’t calling Kevin an Asshole…

    I should put some glasses on when I read. Except, I have no glasses, yet.

    I apologize.
