    Default Trip report....

    Well, it is Sunday, I think, and it is time to catch up.


    Arrived in Little Corn on Thursday pm, met up with Mariano and headed for Casa Iguana. I have not stayed there for a few years and wanted to catch the breezes on this side of the island. What used to be a walk in the park is now similar to the death march on Bataan.......I just may be getting older. CI now has sattelite internet that is reasobably fast and reliable. CI is under the same ownership but new management (as usual) but I must say that the new management is very good.


    What is new on the island? Well, the biggest news is that there is now a cell tower on the island so that cell phone coverage is complete from one end to the other (including my remote patch at the north end). The high end boutique hotel (Yemaya) just down the beach is doing well against all of my predictions. The beach property next to mine has been sold twice!



    I have been very disappointed that my simple stairs project (beach to property), started 1 year ago is not completed. So this trip was all about kicking ass and taking names as well as drinking rum and monitoring the waves.



    I met with Mariano, expecting to get excuses and a bill for additional charges for more work needed. I was not my usual self ......I was laid back and polite. To my surprise, there were no additional charges and he explained the problems and gave me solutions. In short, the project may be completed before I leave in 2 weeks. That is the goal anyway. More will be disclosed as this proceeds.



    Going fishing tomorrow!

    "Watching the Zinc Rust"....Man...haven't heard that in a while....LMAO.

    Caught a few fish ..Spanish Mackrel for dinner I guess.

    The island is changing ...... too many foreigners (like me) are building and sucking up all the land while the kids move to Florida.

    I suppose that they felt the same way in Ireland {kids moving away} a couple of hundred years ago.
