Another Thanksgiving has arrived and I know that I am very lucky and have a lot to be thankful for. Among those things are you!
OK, enough sappiness. Here’s a quick sketch I did while waiting for breakfast on a cloudy morning in St. Croix. This was not in the Flamboyant Lounge, but the service was just as slow. Matt was off for a dive and my other vacation friends were heading home. After I ate, the sun came out and it was blazing hot. I went to the beach, sat down with my book, iPod, and sketch pad to enjoy some sun, quiet and ocean waves. And then it happened.
Like a wall of locusts.
A Disney cruise had just come to Carambola for a day excursion at the beach. As they ran down the beach towards the west end where I had just settled in, I heard someone screaming GET A CHAIR, GET A CHAIR. I turned, looked and was horrified at the vision in front of me. Hundreds of people with screaming kids. I took one look and I ran. Right back to my air-conditioned room and cable TV. I enjoyed a nice morning watching TV and knitting in cool, quiet and solitude. I was very thankful for that!
