Hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Take a moment today to thank our veterans and current service men and women. Freedom is not free.

We have been doing some boating and diving and plan to do some more. Went sailing yesterday with captain Gary on Sunshine. Had a great time as usual and it was great to spend another day with them before they head down island. We also got to introduce the Snyder gang to sailing. here is Blake at the helm of Sunshine, looks just a little bit like his dad.
Don't forget to give thanks this weekend to our veterans that have protected our rights and freedoms, allowing us to live the way we do.

A little late for the Friday beach pic, but better late than never. We took the boat over to water island to do a little cleaning and maintenance. Jay has done a bunch of work on the boat so now it's time to do a little cleaning before Jay's cousin gets here tomorrow. They're staying at a house on water island so it should be a fun week. They plan to do a lot of diving so the boat needs to be ready.
After the work is done Joes Beach Bar is having one more Sunday beach BBQ potluck. Entertainment, food and fun. Sounds good to me :-)

Finally got access to the Facebook page for the Relay for Life event. I'm the online chair so I'm supposed to be updating content, but no one could remember the password so "no access for you" lol. But we finally got it resolved, so tomorrow I'll be uploading some pics and information about the event. If you're on Facebook check out the page and click Like. I'm trying to get the number of Fans up, so help us out! :-)

Had a very nice relaxing sailing (well actually motoring) weekend. The weather was perfect Saturday day with a little shower Saturday night. Today it's been overcast with a shower or two but the sailboat has nice canvas so it's nice and dry. Not much wind so we motored most the time. But just being on the water is all that matters.
We did a couple snorkels and a couple dives. It's been awhile since I dove so it was nice to get back in the water. On Saturday we snorkeled the Cow and Calf. It was a nice snorkel and the water was flat so the vis was really good. (above pic) Thanks to captain Gary and Allison for a wonderful weekend :-)

A little late, but it's still Friday :-). Thought I'd post a pic of Jost Van Dyke in honor of our trip tomorrow! We're taking off for a much deserved break to Jost on a friends sailboat. Going to do a little sailing, a little diving, a little partying, you know the drill. We're going with Captain Gary. He's getting ready to take Sunshine down island for the storm season so this is kinda the last hoorah. Should be a fun weekend :-)

Well, now that Carnival is over, it's time to start concentrating on the next event, Relay for Life. I've decided to get back involved with this great cause. I'm on the committee for online services (facebook, website, online registration/donations, etc.) I'm going this Friday to get my access set up and then you'll start seeing more information. The walk is June 23/24 at the Charlotte Amalie High School. If you remember, I got involved with the UVI team when I first moved here and had a pretty bad experience with the money I collected not getting turned in, so I stepped away from being involved with this event. But after a few years and several friends urging me to get back involved, I've decided it's time. I am really going to push the online donations part (which they didn't have the last time I was involved) so that the money is collected and turned over to the proper people in a timely manner. So stay tuned for more information and hopefully you'll feel compelled to donate to this worthy cause :-)

A little over two weeks and the tomato plant is still hanging in there. We haven't put any fertilizer on it yet, but probably will soon. It also isn't getting much direct sun so I don't know how that is going to effect it in the long run. I guess time will tell.
