Random Photo Update: June 2017


Posted by Cassie

It’s that time again to sort through all the photos that have no other real place but in a random photo drop. All the little moments in life add up…

Cassie Abandoned Cassie in the window
I love checking out old abandoned buildings!

Slovenia! (With my funny friend Jenn! haha)

USA
I thought the fiddles, overalls and square dancing was a funny representation of the USA, but somewhat accurate I suppose for folk dancing

Junk in your Trunk
Now that’s what you call a lot of junk in your trunk!! ;-)

Mushrooms
Check out these cool mushrooms growing on rotting wood

White gingers

wreck 2

Jeff and Britton Cassie fedora
Laura and Trevor Salsa night

We went out salsa dancing with fedoras at a place called Hydra and had a lot of fun! It’s a cool, hip place and while I love salsa dancing and music it does seem to be dying off as a popular music style here on the island. Bachata, merengue and reggaeton are far more favored at most bars. Salsa is like 50′s sock-hop music would be to most people stateside.


We got some moves- haha!

Piramide Pyramid
Yah, you know there’s just a random pyramid in Aguada

Shell
Such beauty! Hermit crabs abound

Motorcycle ride
A nice guy at a bar gave me a ride on his motocicleta!

Crabby
And these guys found a land crab at this place! Apparently it is juey mating season!

Britton and Roberto
Good times with friends like Roberto

Cassie up
Fun at Spanish Wall

The Start of the Bridge and a Regal Hawk


Posted by Cassie

Turkeys bridge
Future Turkey Crossing Point

We are in the early stages of bridge building. We had initially wanted to do a suspended wire bridge, but because we now are going to cross over at a lower point, we can build it in wood.

Measuring
BK measuring to Waldemar on the other side of the currently invisible bridge

That makes it somewhat easier because it is just basically a long skinny deck and we already have about half of the materials. What makes it difficult are the holes for the poles, the distance (about 70 ft!) and the mixing of more concrete.

Holes
Footer holes are dug!

But we have done these things before and so we are at least familiar with the process. Our carpenter friend Waldy can only work on the weekends right now, so it may take a little extra time but we’re not in a hurry.

We are so looking forward to being able to access the cabin a little more easily. Plus it will be a kickass feature!

Oh, and as a little bonus, the other morning Britton noticed a huge hawk on the top of a Royal Palm spire. So I went out and took some photos. It was awesome! Nature’s regalia. We have come to an understanding with the hawks. As long as we keep the babies out of sight, they’ll leave the grown ups alone.
