last long day at the beach....

Today's weather was flawless. Sun, breeze, and warmth. We put on lots of sunscreen, and we relaxed. We walked down the beach.... And we met this guy....Paul with his new friend...
We have been having way too much fun. Paul was in a reggae dance competition today by the pool, he was walking by and one of the guys just grabbed him and had him join. It was by far the most hysterically funny thing I have ever watched, but the best part is: he CAN dance!! He wouldn't let me put the pictures up....
We swam, we sunned, we rested, we had lunch in the open pavillion on the beach....
Let me just say that we are so so thankful to be here, and to have this nice time together. We are NOT like "ha-ha, we're here and you're not".....no, we are just thankful. There has been such a blessing over our time. When we get home, kids, we will be better parents. I know, how can we get any better, right?
Paul is playing his guitar, and we are going to go down to dinner.
Benjamin, we met a cop from New Jersey last night...he had tatoos all down his arms...apparently his department made a rule against them while at the same time mandating they be on duty for 24/7, so he rebelled. He is quite a character. The Jamaican guys who work here call him "Assassin". These guys who work here are NOT politically correct at all, and it is fun and refreshing.
Thank you again you guys at home for all your sacrifice....and thank you Cheryl for your input from up north........
