Well I'm off on my holy pilgrimage to the rum distillery, after another day of great diving, great eating and amazing people. Nothing like ending a day in Paradise by kicking back on the balcony overlooking the bay and enjoying a drink and some intelligent and witty conversation.

I have Photos of the twister game, the ladies of the Grenada trip, the ladies of the Grenada trip who have slapped me, and more - but I'm having uploading problems now - so I'll post them when we get back.



P.S. I just ran this post thru ieSpell - I misspelled intelligent :birthday:

And then there were 5....

Most of our group left early this morning, leaving only Que, Michael, Rosa, my evil twin Kathy and myself. We are contemplating a most difficult day of sunning ourselves on the beach and taking a sunset sail tonight.

I think it is safe to say that we ALL had an amazing time on this trip! The diving was great and the people were even better! Grenada is definitely on my "to visit again" list!

Off to start my difficult morning by the pool....

:teeth: Evil Twin here. Never thought I'd meet my other sister from another mother in Grenada. The whole week has been a hugh blast, hopefully with many fond memories for all of us. See guys I can post (contrary to popular belief). Sad to see the week go by so fast :dltears: Hope you all have a safe trip back and will be looking forward to another trip soon.

I hope y'all are still having fun. I got home about 20 minutes ago, my plane was delayed over 3 hours in Barbados.

Absolutely. I hope you had a great day. So, where are we going tomorrow?

By the way, I was reading Hunter S. Thompson on the way back and have decided to call my trip "Fear and Loathing in Grenada or Adventures with the Hawkman".

I hope everyone made it home safely. We had a lovely evening at the BEST restaurant on the island (Coconut -- on Coconut Beach) after our sunset sail on the Carib. Cat. Thank you to all my wonderful SD travelers for making this trip so wonderful.

More details later when I get home tomorrow,

Yes, it has been such a difficult day here today. Got in two final dives. Dived at Windmill Shallows and Kohani. Saw lots of lobsters, morays, several tropical fish, including a large grouper, cow-fish and a beautiful orange frog fish. As a well known future poet laureate would say... another s____ day in paradise!!!

Then a few hours to rest and eat. Then over to Grand Anse beach to catch the sunset cruise on the Carib Cats catamaran. Simply amazing in great company (with Que, Michelle, and Kathy). Then over to Coconut Beach restaurant for a great dinner. Several "girl moments" throughout the evening. So much fun. Yes, and we did think of all of you guys who left today. In fact, here's to you

Cheers!!!

:teeth:

Then back to my room to wrestle with producing the trip pictures DVD. Que just left to go pack and sleep a few hours before her flight. Kathy leaves in the morn too, Michelle in the evening. I luckily get another day here, but it will definitely be lonelier as things wind down. Oh well.. Back to reality soon.

And this has to be said. Thanks Kamala for once again organizing a great trip. It is NOT easy dealing with all the logistics, arrangements and most of all the different personalities on trips like this. I really appreciate it, and I am sure that sentiment will be echoed by all the other folks on this trip.

Thanks.

:lmao: After an 18 hour trip yesterday I'm back in Colorado and missing having my breakfast with friends and that wonderful ocean view!

It was another great trip with SD and great to see old friends and meet new ones. One of those special benefits of SD trips!

I want to say a special thanks to my roommate Que, I hope you are feeling better and to my dive buddy Rosa, even though I'm jealous that you had the chance to get in another day of diving!

I hope everyone had a safe trip home and look forward to seeing and diving with you all again someday, and hopefully sooner rather than later.

For me, its now time to get ready for ski season! :teeth:

:teeth: Kamala for another great SD trip and I'll be signing up for another soon!

Sounds like this trip was awesome. Not sure how it could top Cozumel but perhaps the wench just keeps getting better with practice! :teeth:

Dearest, sweetest, kindest Henry,

On behalf of all the SD members who were not able to attend this most momentous journey, may I be so bold as to suggest you share some of your photos HERE as well? :lmao:
