Well it took longer than some pregnancies, but we finally have internet in our apartment. And it’s quicker than the internet we had from Shaw in our apartment in Vancouver! We’re thrilled to death about finally getting it. If I actually explained to you the process of getting it, you’d be reading til next Tuesday.
Our renovations are complete as well. The final piece in the puzzle was getting a second air conditioning unit installed, and that is done and done. The apartment looks much more spacious and we’re delighted with the extension. We have all our furniture as well. Most of our stuff arrived unscathed, but one mirror broke, and one pane of glass in our display cabinet broke. Not that big of a deal.
We did some deep sea fishing here in Curacao, just off the Spanish Waters. It was a heck of a good time, with the Y-Knot Fishing Charters. We hooked and released a couple barracudas almost as soon as we got the lines in the water. The doradus we caught were darn tasty! I tell you, nothing like fresh fish. The water was so calm, it was a real delight to be on the ocean. Steve, the boat’s skipper, told us that where we caught the doradu the swells were usually in the 10-12 foot range! But they were less than a foot on our day on the boat – and I was glad for it.
Pam asked me to talk a bit about comments on the blog since a couple of people have emailed us, wondering about the process. There is a “Leave a comment” link just under the headline of a post. If you click that, you can leave a comment. The first time you do, it requests your email address. The email address is NEVER displayed publicly, and we don’t sell or give it away. Pam or I have to approve your first comment. Then any time you leave an additional comment using the same email address, the blog will immediately display it. We do the “first approval” in order to prevent spam type comments appearing.
