A Day in the Barn

The weather was beautiful as usual but the waves rolled in with some force so it was not a good day for snorkeling. The boats on the moorings in front of the condo were really rocking side to side, it could not have been very comfortable for the sailors. So we had a late breakfast and mostly lazed around all day and enjoyed the warm breeze, sunshine and the pool. It was a very relaxing day.

Around 7:00 pm we had a Skype call to our grandkids in Connecticut and enjoyed seeing them on our netbook which also displayed a webcam view of us to them. There's no charge for Skype and it can be used anywhere in the world with an internet connection although you ought to have at least a WiFi speed connection or faster.

For  our sunset view, we saw a huge cruise ship depart at sundown headed south. For the most part, the cruise ships travel at night so they can spend the days in various ports across the Caribbean. As you might expect, when a cruise ship is in port, the town is very crowded! Given that, we avoid town when they are in if we can. We  hope to snorkel tomorrow.
