Beautiful sunset last night after big sleep. Left camp and went to Key Deer wildlife refuge.
It was a great roll out of Key Largo with the ever present massive damage of Hurricane Irma pretty much everywhere in varying degrees and amounts of damage.
This is a shout out to friend and fellow 2014 Bubbafest rider, Cici Roberts. She liked to call Bubba, Booba. It was funny and great like Cici. I had yak so a morning paddle at Black water Sound was the plan.
I got to go down to Harriet’s restaurant for a “real” cheeseburger in paradise. First view of upper keys looks valiant but rough. I am going to pig roast and kick off dinner. My C2C buds Rich and Chrysa are here with there daughter. Peace out. T dog wewa
I loaded up everything like it seems to be usual and headed for Key Largo and Bubbafest. Not sure of what I would find in my beloved Keys. Once a Floridian always a Floridian. Keys strong.
I had a last minute message that there would be a surprise 70th birthday celebration on the glass bottom boat next to the Bubbafest host hotel on Friday at 4 pm and I was invited. It was a beautiful day and off I went.
I had to attend our annual company meeting at the Ritz Carlton in Naples this weekend. DOLCE VITA. Mariella came with me and we brought the wood tandem with us and put in at Colon’s Point along the scenic drive.
Mariella and I slept in paradise because it was a long afternoon and early evening for me yesterday. My tattoo artist extraordinaire, Fijian Tony Oumi did not get to me until the middle of the afternoon. He came and delivered a masterpiece. Super brau and righteous human. Peace to you, Tony.
We drove into Sigatoka and looked around a little. It is Sunday not a lot open. Peaceful, sleepy and welcomingly easy. Bought a new bag for coming home. We went into the local supermarket and it was really cool. We took a walk along the Sigatoka River.
Had a great veggie pizza and then drove toward Suva to Korolevu. A sleepy Sunday drive through the small oceanfront villages of Fiji. We leave late tomorrow and will be home July 4th morning totally trashed. Thanks for coming along. All the best.
Peace out. Namaste Tres
Mariella and I went to the local glass blower studio, Hot Glass, here in Korotogo, Brit Alice Hill, who was having a family do a hands on glass forming and blowing class. It was very cool and her work was very nice.
We then went to lunch. Best fish and chips ever. We then went to Kula Eco Adventure Park and I became a human wildlife stand. Albino boa constrictor.
I then was able to feed the hawksbill turtles.
