10-18 to 10-20-2020 Friends Trip to Bread & Butter Cayes

Some friends organized a two night trip to Bread & Butter Cayes to take advantage of the new moon
and hopefully see even more stars than we normally see.

The day started off rainy, but then turned beautiful.

Duane, one of the island owners, broke out some fireball for everyone.
However, he thought one person in our group was being a baby about drinking
it, so he poured it in a baby bottle for him, lol.

We did get some rain during the trip, but that did not stop us from dancing and having a blast.

A beautiful heron came and visited us on the brand new dock (built after Hurricane Nana destroyed
the old one).

There was plenty of relaxing time during the days after our late nights.

Eric took the obligatory nap in a hammock - super peaceful.

Some of us went swimming/floating around the island, and others went out fishing via paddleboard.

We enjoyed some nice sunsets.

As you can see, we way overpacked for a two night trip, lol.

We all had a fabulous time and hope to do it again soon.

10-4-2020 Lonely Sunday Beach Walk

We pretty much got out of the habit of our Sunday beach walks for many months because it's just so different now. Most of the places we would stop at for drinks and/or snacks have been closed, and even the ones that are open, it's just not the same to stop there and have to wear a mask and socially distance.

This particular Sunday we just felt like going for a walk to get some exercise.

So, we walked (at record speed without all the stops) all the way north to "Hawaii".

It was one of those weird days where the color of the sky is about the same as the color of the sea.

We did catch a nice sunset where the lagoon/river meets the sea at "Hawaii".

The recent storms changed the landscape of the area a lot. That whole sandy area where Eric is
standing in the distance at the right - that used to all be water, not beach.

Yeah, beach walks just aren't the same. However, we know we are fortunate to be able to take these 
beach walks anyway, and for that we are grateful.
