For Tomorrow, I Shall be in Paradise

No I’m not dying. At 6:09 AM I fly out of here to St Croix for a week.

Have you noticed I haven’t been blubbering daily about my excitement and anticipation?

I am damn excited. I think maybe I may, or will try a relaxing vacation.

I may not post my blog…okay, I’m feeling stress about not posting but I may give myself a bit of a sabbatical. That’s fancy talk preachers and professors use to say they may just be out of touch for a while.

I plan to spend some time on the beach with my best friend Gigi, do some research into the causes of sea glass, drink some beer with lime, and snorkel until I can’t walk.

By next Thursday I expect to have had many belly laughs, good meals with good friends, too much sun, and most likely bloated ankles.

I love my leisure and I love this island and my friends there and friends yet to be discovered there.

You guys have a wonderful weekend and week on the mainland. I’m going to be a middle aged island boy for a while.

Have a GREAT time! (Maybe you could squeeze in just one or two little blog posts? At least take lots of pictures so you can show us when you get back.)

Gosh, I miss ya already!

I am glad you are back to where the Wild Wreg belongs but please do not devoid (that is a word right?) us of your island adventures!

Afterall men like me must live off of these moments!

Have a great time.
When I lived in Antigua I would tell visiters you need three weeks for a Carribean vacation. The first, to get beyond the to much sun and sunburn. The second, to truly start having a good time. The third week is when you really feel the sensation, of island time.
