November10

We were blessed with a great first night’s sleep and so we were up before the sun. In fact, the moon was still out.

A beautiful shot of the villa that we would move to mid-week.

The gorgeous Villas looked even more lovely in the rising sun.

D had everything set up i.e. coffee and chairs for sunrise that first morning from the roof at Villas San Miguel.

We realized that we must have been sitting in someone else’s chairs and sure enough we met Milly and Kim from Minneapolis. We hit it off immediately. They emptied their surplus holiday supplies with us. We walked them to the ferry. There was an entourage of many people I know saying good-bye to Cousin Frank.

The gate that is locked and secure at night. I love seeing the shock of the blue Caribbean!

Every morning that I am on Isla I go beachcombing for treasures.

This was my haul the first day. Do you see the green marble in the middle of my stash? I sometimes find one over the course of a couple of weeks. I have never ever found one my first day!

The kitchen at Villas San Miguel was perfectly set up for light meals.

That morning D had a fancy for a homemade breakfast of Isla ham and eggs.

We had a lovely breakfast around the pool.

Then we walked to North Beach for a brief dip and to hook up with Bro #3 and all the gang. In addition, were Margaret & Andy and Margaret’s brother Wilf and Arlene as well as my second cousin Sandra, her husband Tim and their friends Carol & Gord.

That evening I had tried to arrange an Islaholic meetup. We walked down the west side of the island to Sergio’s (now closed).

We were familiar with the beautiful setting at Sergio’s.

Sunset was mysterious.

Our family made up a portion of a larger group. My husband D is besides me. In front is our family friend Dona in red. Sister #3 is in between D and I and Bro #3 is behind Dona. Our Sis-in-law is in the middle.

Fish tacos

There were 15 in our group that evening at Sergio’s for dinner. Which was great, except I already knew every single one of them. There were problems with the food coming out of the kitchen. Many people ordered the Parmesan fish that we all remembered from Sergio’s Playa Sol.

I had herb fish and

D had a tough time chewing his Octupus.

Bro #3 enjoyed his wings. Unfortunately Sergio wasn’t around to have a visit with. In the mean time long time friend Ziggy tried his best to make us feel welcomed.

Kath’s quote: “Octopuses have hundreds of suckers, each one equipped with its own ganglion with thousands of neurons. These ‘mini-brains’ are interconnected, making for a widely distributed nervous system. That is why a severed octopus arm may crawl on its own and even pick up food”. Frans de Waal
