Mental health break

First of all I must apologize for the lack of recent photos. My Internet connect has been though a weak cell phone signal. Blogger has had fits with it.

My connection to the outside world might be sketchy, but it's good enough for someone who really doesn't mind leaving some of the world's craziness behind. I'm only catching enough news to see if there's a zombie collapse. Barring that the rest of the world can take care of itself.

We started the morning with a walk along Calidesi's nature trails. Just the thing to build up an appetite for a bacon and eggs breakfast.

In the afternoon, my lovely wife and I set up the inflatable kayak and explored the mangrove trails. They are like living tunnels with a narrow winding channel through them. They are so narrow in spots that my wife's paddle got stuck on the mangroves on both side of the kayak. That stopped us dead. We untangled and made it though. One of the freakiest things was all the small crabs scuttling across the mangrove roots. At times it was like the trees themselves were moving. I liked it. My lovely wife, not so much.

Right now we almost have the whole island to ourselves. The only other boat in the marina belongs to the park volunteers. I'm enjoying the quiet.
