The Winds a Blowin

As you can tell, we are still in Clarence Town, Long Island.

The wind is still blowing and the occational rain squall is keeping us wet. It was a great "alarm clock" this morning at 5:15...LOL

It was a great weekend, as we spent the evenings at the local pubs drinking beer and trying everyones conch fritters. The ones here at the Marina's "Outer Edge Grill" are some of the best we've had. The beers and cokes are very cold and Hermie, the cook, also does a great Mac-n-cheese! Needless to say it's not diet food by any means!!

Today, we walked a mile or more (good for all the mac-n-cheese I've had!!) to the bakery (not good for diet)!! We bought some cinnamon rolls, cinnamon-raisin bread, chocolate cake(only 1 piece), coconut pie(only 1 piece) and 6 oatmeal cookies. This is a real treat for us, so we loaded up!!! On the way, a local dog walked with us until we passed a house with some goats. He chased this one little goat into the salt pond across the street and began attacking it. I was shocked because this is the most passive dog we have run into here in the Islands and he plays with Schooner all the time. I asked Gordon to do something to stop him before he really hurt the goat(yes, I was a bit more excited than I sound now). Gordon and Chip started throwing rocks and finally the dog gave up before he killed the goat and all is well with goat. My goat saving hero now has a very sore shoulder!! It's the first he has thrown anything since his shoulder surgery 3 years ago!!!

A local man told us just now that if the wind doesn't lay down tonight, we will be here until Saturday....great!!! So, for us, it's back to playing the "waiting on the weather" game.
