swim with the fishes

We have returned. For all the hoops we had to go through to get home (taxi to ferry, to taxi to airport) it went remarkably well. The trip itself was also lovely. Getting there was hard -the hoops make mommy grouchy at the end of the day, and it isn't a happy adventure when I'm lugging luggage and children, but I think it was well worth it. We had beautiful weather, met lots of nice folks, I had time to visit with my family, the kids got more time with Mom-mom and Pop-pop and mommy got in a few really nice dives. I think, next time, I might see if I can wrangle a solo trip back to St Lucia. One-on-one diving suits me... actually, I think it spoiled me. Now I get vexed when I get the "time's up, ascend" signal and I look down and it's only been 35 minutes and my tank is still 2/3 full. But, probably more on that later.

I think the kids are going to miss the buffet, but I will be happy to get back to normal eating (I feel like a little sausage and it's not a good thing). Elly will miss her giant sandbox -she played for HOURS, it was too cute. Isaac loved snorkeling, though he was a tad intimidated when it was time to jump off a boat into a whole big ocean with no land in sight. The guide had gotten a body board out, so I pointed it out to him, told him to swim to it, and mommy would be right behind him. It helps that Pop-pop was already there. In he went. My little fish just took off. The downside was that he was so excited by it all that he kept smiling and wanting to talk and that kept letting sea water into his mouth and snorkel. :-p

Now. To see what time everyone gets up tomorrow...

Good night, and I hope the days have been good for everyone else, too.
