Well, we are overdue for some new content here, but the truth of the matter is that things have just slowed down a bit for us. It is hurricane season in the Caribbean and, although we are out of the danger zone, it is incredibly rainy, hot and humid. The weather just makes you lethargic. We now understand the origin of “island time” and the need for siestas. You can’t do much or move quickly in these conditions. Surprisingly, however, it does cool down a bit on most nights and the heat doesn’t build back up until about 7:00am (LOL, but no joke). We sometimes take a stroll with Lucy on peaceful mornings. The surroundings are an abandoned US military base that is slowly and silently being reclaimed by the jungle. It makes for good flora and fauna viewing. So without further ado, here are some pictures we took on these walks.
Apart from the old military base and the jungle, there is nothing around for miles except the remnants of the 17th century Fort San Lorenzo.
