Another Day in Paradise


#sol18- March 26, 2018 Day 26 of 31

It was another quiet day here- the big excitement was when a monitor lizard took a shortcut through the pool. Monitor lizards are gross (to me), but do draw attention. This guy walked up the concrete path with determination and did not hesitate to slide into the pool, swim across, and emerge on the other side before ducking under a sunbed and then disappearing through the fence. Aside from a few people jumping up to take pictures or video it did not disturb the peace at all. IMG_7026

Today was a day full of reading and relaxation (yes, I had another massage)- I could get used to this! One more day and I head to part two of break (a regional teacher conference).

  1. Isn’t it funny to be around these huge lizards? My son-in-law compares them to our squirrels- people don’t worry about them. I like the way you say, “this guy…” You could add a little more description to your piece, for those who don’t know them!

  2. Ew. I hate those lizards. Glad you are having time to indulge and be present in all your guilty pleasures. Xo

  3. This one is pretty big! I envy you right now. It is in these peaceful moments that you can really enjoy just sitting and watching what’s going on around you. I don’t think I have ever seen one go for a swim. That would have been a sight. Enjoy.

  4. Ugh! I love all things natural. I would have been fascinated and repulsed at the same time. That pool picture is not fair as we are still getting snowstorms here in the northeast!
