Well, Operation In-Law Week (I think that’s what I was calling it, right?) has come to an end, and it will definitely be one to remember. In addition to the fishing expedition from last week’s post, we also climbed (literally, climbed. It was my fault.) the mountain to Brimstone Fortress, ran through some sprinklers at Caribelle Batik, rode on a car ferry, got lost in Nevis (the map’s fault, not mine), ate a fantastic hamburger covered in goat cheese, found a load of blue sea glass buried on the beach, talked to some goats (they talked back), and tried not to embarrass ourselves after accidentally eating REALLY REALLY spicy conch at a very fancy restaurant. It was a blast.
And I. Am. Exhausted.
I don’t think I’ve been out of the house that much in one week since we arrived on the island last April and got forced into mandatory fun for orientation. But it was a fun week overall and I’m very glad the in-laws had the chance to come. They claim to have really enjoyed themselves – despite the island driving – and will probably be talking about this for months and years to come. There’s even going to be a movie made about their foreign expedition: “Country Mice Leave Home,” look for it in theaters near you! (I’m kidding, you guys are fantastic. :])
The vacation is over, however, and today was the first day of summer semester classes. So here’s to getting back to reality and the slow passage of island time. Like I’ve been telling the Mister a lot lately, one semester at a time and pretty soon it’ll all be behind us.
Happy Monday statesiders. 🙂
