Well, I’ve just finished a great three week vacation, first week in Texas with our good Friends Marty and Jim Graves who gave us a real Texas tour. It included a visit to the swamps with the Spanish Moss, Seeing a Civil War enactment, searching through a number of great antique shops and museums and having a great Catfish fry!. Then is was on to Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles just North of the coast of Venezuela. In ten days of diving we did a total of 17 dives at Snake Bay, Marie Pon Pon, Boca Sami, Playa Kalki,The Blue Wall, The Water Factory, Poza Spania (Pozo Espania) and Laguna. The most relaxing dives were with our good friend Tina in Snake Bay and the most exciting was hunting Lion Fish with Eric and Yolanda Weiderfoort at Poza Spania (got 44) but watch out for the poison spines!!!
Collected more shells and worked on the keys for my Caribbean Sea Shell Book, and worked on the selection of cover ideas for my Civil War Book, “Rough Enough” and got them into the publisher so we can get the galley’s done. I still have to finish the map, but that should be done by end of the week even if I have to do it all myself without a graphic artist.
Tomorrow I’ll plant the corn patch and work on book all day. It’s good to be sleeping in my own bed again. Jill comes home in three weeks, she’s helping Annalee with babysitting Quinn until the end of the school year. It will be good to have her at home.
