Back in Germany....again!  Lets see what winter is like here.  Our three months home zoomed by, with more demo work, abatement, permits and finally the big day...tear down.  Over a hundred years of dust released into the cosmos in just a few hours.  In addition a trip to the ARC got me a great Django gypsy costume.  We even got a big west coast road trip and some camping in Arches to boot. Can I rest now?

A birthday in Germany

July 18th 2012, I'm 64 years old today.  A day of reflection.  How did I make it this far?  Fate?  Luck?
Celebration, relax, yoga, draw, Karaoke?  What a year.  Take siding off Custer house. Garage building. Germany, the cruise, back to Germany...oh and a trip to Dubai too.  Am I jet lagged or what.  Went to Heidelberg yesterday, an hour drive from Landstuhl.  We found an Indian place to eat, pricey but now everything is in relation to Kopenhaven now.
The Heidelberg castle over my right shoulder.

 Beautiful eagle Ray
 Our last full day coming up.  Yesterday, snorkeled at Buccaneer after watching Tarpon on south coast.  Two "rock" fish, hard to spot.  Went to Reef Resort at night as friends snorkeled, we watched four eagle rays and a really big sting ray cruise the boat dock, WAY COOL.  Squito bites woke me early...where is the benadril?..oh good found it.

Hanging at Winta Cottage

Wednesday December 7th.  Mojito worked most of morning, then we pretty much hanged at the cottage all day, sunning on deck and on slab under the house.  Ate whatever we could munch on when we were hungry, OMG...even ice cream/oreos, don't tell! Listened to great music from Mojito's Ipod, danced some too.  Just got a little crazy, we did.  A nice sunset too. Went to Karaoke at Brac Reef club, and then the prize of the day, saw eagle rays off the boat dock, three of them.  They would come by, drift out, come by again and repeat.  Dah, nobody brought a camera to dock.  Even thou it was night, a big light over dock would have shown rays real good. A lovely very colorful day.

Mellow Day in Paradise

Mojito worked from computer, attending several meetings and working projects.  We did get a walk in, and snorkel later in afternoon.  Saw my first lion fish, and a nice peacock flounder, and the usual suspects.  Everyone else saw a sting ray but me :-(.....but I also saw a horned trunkfish...or at least I think that's what it's called.
These pictures are from yesterday.
 The north end light tower.
 The terrain on cliff in north.....that rock is like razors.
 Resting after our exhausting walk...NOT.
On deck at sunset, with evening Radhler and loving wife.  Thanks. Some pics from Joseph's camera.

Off to the light house...well it's not really a light's a light tower powered by a solar cell and battery.  Before we get there, we stop at Bat Cave, no Robin was not home either.

  The lighthouse is down a long road lined by yellow flowers.

 Frigates and booby's can be seen soaring along the cliffs.

A wonder hike goes west along the cliff...not too close, but you can get to the edge, taking care where you step as the rocks are like broken glass...Do NOT fall down, a hiking stick is very valuable here.

Island Caves and Waves

 Stairs up from Peter's Cave
Off to see some waves and caves today.  After a yummy green drink and the making of picnic fixins, PB&J with sprouts, we head off to the North end of island.
 Police's man cut, hope to snorkel here once wind switches to east.
 Cliff at North End, nice waves here today.
 View out of Scull Cave...darn no gold left.
