Jay still likes his job. Being out on boats all day, how could you not. He had to work today, which is probably going to be the case for most Saturdays, but they are going to try and give him Sundays off so that we can have at least one day off together. Since he was working, I took another Saturday morning walk. (see picture above) This time I walked to the University and back and then down to Brewers Bay beach. It's up hill the entire way to the University and it took 18 minutes. But coming back I found a shortcut down a bunch of stairs and paths and it only took 9 minutes. So I'm wondering if I should be walking to work instead of dropping Jay off, then coming back to the University and then back to pick up Jay and then back to the University. I may try it Monday and see how it goes. We only have two more weeks at the University and then I'll have to drive, so I should try it while I can.
Speaking of driving, we used our first tank of gas. It took 12 days to use 12.7 gallons and drive 195 miles. It cost $49.30 to fill up. That's right.....$3.88 a gallon and I'm only getting 15.5 miles per gallon. Crazy!

Also take minute to look at VISAR web page. These guys go the extra mile as volunteers and they do take donations for equipment and supplies. http://www.visar.org/ They came out and took one of our charter quests to the hospital last week after she became ill and by all acounts did a great job.

Friday we picked up lunch at a really good bbq place in Havensight. I need to get their name and number. They take to go orders over the phone and several of us put in an order and then went to pick it up. Most of the week everyone is busy and just eats lunch at their desk, but Friday was more laid back and it was nice to having lunch with the whole group.
Yesterday Jay had to work so I just hung out at the apartment. I went for a really nice walk down to Brewers Bay beach, then up a really big hill and then back to the University. It was 82 degrees and sunny and I was sweating my buns off so I decided to come back to the apartment to cool off. The view was beautiful; I think I will make it a part of my regular weekend routine. (see picture above)

Well a package or two have shown up. It turns out seven to eight days for Priority Mail to arrive from the US. Deb had ordered some new work clothes from Lands End and one of the boxes we shipped prior to leaving both made it in eight days. The bulk of the stuff that we mailed down were sent parcel post which can take weeks by all accounts. They were odd sized boxes, over sized in a lot of cases so time will tell how that works out.
Deb's planning to do a post tomorrow going into more detail about her transition into work. As for mine it has been good so far. This week has been a little slow at work but the today through the weekend looks to be very busy so we will see how it goes as the pace picks up.

Well back to work today for me. We are trying to work into a daily schedule, work, eat, sleep etc. just like in the real world. It has taken a full two weeks to get adjusted to the time. Starting work has forced us to adjust. Deb actually got a full nights sleep last night. Tonight is the premier of Survivor so since Deb is an addict, I mean fan we will be having a nice quiet night at home this evening to celebrate our two week anniversary in De Islands.

Well we have tried three different time to upload this. In one of those great islands mysteries the Internet connection is faster and a little more stable this morning than most so we tried again and it worked.
By the way this is a blatant rip off of the Guys at http://www.on-stjohn.com/. They do the jeep cam on a regular basis. I will say up front it is not the quality of their videos. We have neither the budget, for equipment or the years of experience that they have.
