We had a busy day. Well, a busy half day. We didn’t do squat before noon. After lunch we drove over to Chaulk Sound and Taylor Bay. Chaulk Sound was absolutely breathtaking! I’ve seen pretty awesome Caribbean waters over the last four years, but nothing like this.
The water in the Sound is actually quite shallow, causing the vivid turquoise color. Pictures really can’t do it justice.
Next up was Taylor Bay. Now this is a beach that I can really get behind. You can literally walk a 100+ yards out into the water and still not be knee deep. This was as close to walking on water as I’ll ever get…and I wasn’t worried about drowning.
This evening we went Dewayne & Chris’ condo for drinks and to listen to some live music. Their place at the Seven Stars Resort is fabulous! We got to see a sunset for the first time since we arrived, as the sun sets behind our pool house. After drinks it was on to a great local Italian restaurant for dinner.
The only funny thing I have to report happened early today while the housekeeper was here. Apparently, the owner of our house regrets giving us such a good deal (thank you Master Negotiator Julia) and has instructed the housekeeper that she is not to replenish toilet paper or paper towels for us this week. Really??!! While she was upstairs cleaning this morning, one person kept watch while another pilfered a roll of paper towels and hid them in the refrigerator. What a lawless group we are. Normally I would frown upon these kind of shenanigans, but he should know he cannot win this kind of battle with the likes of us. He obviously doesn’t know who he’s dealing with. We are Texans after all.
