Wanted to get an early start today because it's been raining later in the afternoons. I woke up around 5am or so. Made coffee and waited for sleeping beauty to get up. Can't say I blame her though...it's so relaxing here on the island. Lorrie got a picture of me drinking my coffee and uploading videos on the veranda:
And her's Lorrie sitting outside the shelter...of course.
We were at the beach about 6 hours today. Had great weather and then a little after noon the storm clouds starting forming.
We stayed at the beached right up until the rain hit. It looked sureal with the black clouds coming in. Water was a strange sort of color. Rained like hell too.
Here's Lorrie in the water watching the storm come in.
It was probably a good thing because we both got a little sun burned today. After we left the beach we headed into Isabell because on Tuesdays and Wednesdays there's a fruit and vegetable truck that is set up along the road. When we pulled up to the truck it was raining like I've never seen it before. Water was running down the street. Three guys were hanging out until a flimsy PVC sort of shelter. After waiting for what seemed like forever for the rain to abate we said what the heck and jumped out of the jeep. There was litterally water running ankle deep. I looked over one of the tables they had lined with fresh fruit and the guy was standing on a plastic tray to try and stay out of the water. We picked out a few grapefruit, papya,apples, bananas and some sort of melon. When we were paying it was then I noticed the extension cord running from the truck to the electronic scale and the cash regester. They had a power strip plugged into the extension cord and had it loosely tight up to the table. All this while we are all standing in ankle deep running water....crazy...I'm telling ya.When we got back to the house the power was out...which we fiqured by all the rain and lightening. We crashed and took a nap. Headed out into town tonight to eat and maybe do "Lazy Jacks"
