Should do that more often.....

There's quite a few things where I think, I should do that more often. Walking on the beach is definitely one of those. I've just got back, it's almost dark, from a late afternoon splash along the South Sound beach. This evening the sea was calmer than in the photos, gently washing against the rocks with an even swell. Hurricane season begins at the end of this month, the tourist season usually ends about then too.

There's been talk of the hurricane season. There have been crabs coming ashore in the Brac, apparently this means there will be a big one this season. The locals call them hurricane crabs, one of my colleagues asked April, the Brac-er on my team, if it was true that the crabs had come ashore. The last time they did this was during the 2004 season, when the infamous Ivan decimated the island. Where I move to may be dictated by this piece of local knowledge.

I have to move soon and I'm looking at places on the Internet. It's a lot easier now I know the lay of the land a bit better. Tempting is the one bed and loft of 7 Mile Beach, the condo at Spotts, the condo near North Sound and the sail club. I need to keep bad weather in mind and I must look in earnest next week. This weekend, and it's a long one, I'm getting some much needed rest and catching up on those things I should do more often.
