What a day! I must admit, at first I thought that Crab and Bride drank too much water and took too many breaks to really get anything done.
This morning after breakfast, we left to work on their trail. I've seen trails before, but this is more like a road! Six feet wide, and through some of the wildest, roughest jungle you have ever seen, and sharp, spikey rocks all around. Crab and Bride call it 'bush', so I guess I will also, but it looks like jungle to me.
We saw parrots this morning! Oh, they were SO colorful and noisy -- like avian children playing in the trees.
I know Crab and Bride were a tad concerned about me using a sharp machette, but I've done this before. I think I surprised them. We had to carry over three gallons of water with us! Dear me!
I started getting limp about 1:00, and the little dears set me in the shade of a sea grape tree to rest a bit. While I rested, they cleared another sixty feet of trail. This trail is so long that it's almost as much work to walk home as to do the work! Crab says it's just under 1000 yards to the bluff, and it looks like we're about halfway there.
I am knackered, as Sandi would say, but happy. I didn't think I'd want to get into the hot tub in this heat, but I have to admit it was delightful. I must find out the recipe for this delightful fruity drink Crab keeps making.
Looking forward to visiting Finn! Have you seen her adorable Lucy? This has been a wonderful trip, so far.
Crab says we'll try to get into the sea tomorrow, unless it's still choppy. I want to see de Crab cave. Speaking of which, I don't believe I've ever known anyone to have SUCH an assortment of headlamps. I mean, they're EVERYWHERE!! There must be 20 headlamps all around this house, all seemingly strategically placed.
Did I mention that Crab is a good cook?
More later, after my nap. :>)
