It has been a week of interesting weather.  A week ago, the wind was so blustery, our Saturday Ak'Bol yoga class had to be held in the small palapa off the beach and without mats, lest everything blow away.  Late Sunday through Monday, a cold front came through bringing quite a bit of rain (especially for "dry season") and leaving lots of muddy puddles in the road north of the bridge.  We've also had  extremely high tides this week (from the full moon?) bringing boatloads of sargasso and other sea grass up onto the beach. This is the highest we can remember the water coming on our beach since last fall, when Hurricane Rina came within 100 miles of the island.  As a result of all this weather, both the beach and the road have been messy to ride bikes or run on.  By mid-week the weather was back to the norm -- moderate east winds, sunny, and very warm.  The changeable weather here continues to surprise me!

I've been posting a lot of photos on Facebook this week but have been neglecting the blog.  I know at least a few folks worry if we don't post in a week, so I thought I'd share some of the photos from the past week here.

Beautiful blue skies, very windy, and the reef roaring before the rains came last weekend

Beautiful rainbow view -- note the clean beach with minimal sea grass earlier in the week!

Reef is barely visible today due to a wind shift to the northwest -- compare this to the first photo
Mid-week, Chunky and Ruthie stopped by on a bike ride north.  Paisley made sure Ruthie had a full bath before allowing them to continue on their way.
On Thursday, we met Bill, Paula, Gigi, and Gigi's friend Mike for brunch at Estel's.  A good time (and plenty of good food) was had by all.

Yes, our beach guy is working on it a little at a time. It is back-breaking work to shovel it up!
