Friday Pic

Friday Pic, originally uploaded by captainjay.

TGIF! Wow, what a crazy week. Sooooo glad it's Friday. We haven't been to the beach for quite awhile so I'm sharing a pic of my favorite little island and our beautiful view.

This weekend weather is not looking so good. There's a little storm out there brewing that may pass by here this weekend sometime. It may not become an actual TS by the time it reaches here but it's supposed to drop lots of rain, which the island needs. So we'll probably be hanging out at the house on Sunday. The Family Resource Center is supposed to be having a Sunday Beach at Magen's bay this Sunday 14th from 11am to 6pm. I was thinking about going but not if the weather is going to be that bad. So we'll see.

The boat is still out of the water. We pulled it before going on vacation and had the bottom pressure sprayed. Then last weekend Jay and another guy prepped and bottom painted it and Jay buffed the sides. It looks good and ready to go back in the water. We were hoping maybe this weekend but that doesn't look like that's going to happen. The water has been so flat out, perfect power boat conditions. So hopefully we'll get back out on the water soon.

Also want to say Happy Birthday to my sister. She's turning the big "4-0" so I just had to throw that out there! Lol Have fun at the beach sis :-)

Well, first, since you haven't been here before, you should really be reading all you can find about the islands, it's customs, it's history, cost of living, etc. There are several relocation boards that you can find lots of information, like There are also lots of books that are fun to read like "Desiring Paradise" that gives you a little insight into what to expect.

Finding a reliable car was harder than we thought it would be and if we had to do over, we would have bought and shipped one down since we have friends and family in the car business so we could have gotten a better deal.

We've never gotten island fever or regretted our decision. It's all about your frame of mind and being open to change. Positivity is the key. Good luck with your move. :-)
