Flightless in St. Kitts

As I mentioned in my last blog, I was unable to fly this weekend due to the airspace restrictions for the G8/G20 summits.  Fortunately, the weather was poop-o-la, so I wouldn’t have flown anyway.  Instead, Jan, Chuck and I drove to St. Jacob’s on Saturday.  We had a great time!  We first hit the farmer’s market, then over to the outlet mall (across the street).  Next, we went to the Stone Crock for their lunch buffet.  As usual, it was amazing.  We all stuffed ourselves silly and had to waddle out of the restaurant.  We rolled down the street and hit the stores in the silo.  We didn’t make any purchases, but Jan purchased a straw broom from the broom shop across the street.  It was interesting to watch the dudes make them from scratch.  Probably a little better quality than one you would buy at Zellers….

We went into my favourite store – Angel Treasures.  I had purchased some really nice prints by the artist Elvira Amrhein, during my last couple of trips there:

And the one Chuck bought me yesterday:

Ugh, it’s hard to pick a favourite, but I think it would be either of the last two.  While there, I also purchased this one:

Totally different than the others, but something about it screamed “take me home!”….so I did.

It was a great day – we all really enjoyed the trip.

Today, Chuck and I just sat around, half out of it.  The humidity was a total energy zapper.  Now we’re experiencing a bad storm and the poopy cable keeps cutting out.  How rude!

Today’s symptoms:  Very weak and tired, due to the long day I had yesterday.  It was more than worth it though!
