So, life around here is pretty relaxed.. enjoying the creatures, critters and getting to know their patterns. I was able to get pictures of the squawky parakeets that keep flying by our place and we finally saw the howler monkeys that we sometimes hear in the trees behind us. We had been warned of scorpions hanging out in your shoes and to look in your shoes before putting them on, but I hadn't thought to look at the towels! I had grabbed a towel, moved it, and then only noticed that there was a scorpion on it! It really clung to it and it took a while to finally shake it free outside. I check the towels now! We watch the geckos each night, they arrive on our kitchen and living room walls each evening just as sun sets.. there are now about 6-8 that show up - the boys have been naming them. The iguanas creep around during the heat of the day and I just love watching them walk. When they notice that I'm too close they do this head bob that tells me to get lost. This morning, we had something new, horses grazing in front of our house.. hmm. The beach constantly changes too with high tide comes bits of coral and wood thrown up on the beach and with low tide comes the big open beach that just beckons a walk. Some days seem hotter than others.. even though it's just a few degrees difference but I find myself saying things like "it's a hot one today", as if I've been around long enough to actually know. The sunsets change too.. with different hues of orange or red and a warm light that finishes each day.. just love that! The midday light is more intense - a white light. And the green palms and blue skies add their colours into the mix too.
