The fox family that lives in our annex pasture has expanded. They totally ignore our sheep when they’re over there. The den is near our front gate. We’ve seen five of them so far.

This is a miniature scene from the original Ghostbusters movie set inside an Altoids tin. Venkman grabbing Slimer with his proton stream. The ballroom in the background is the one used in the movie. The chandelier is made from a piece of vintage jewelry.

Brian and I have been complaining about the geese that discovered our pond about a week ago. I was tickled to glance out our front windows to see he had taken this problem into his own hands and was out chasing them off in our rowboat. They actually just flew from one end to the other for a bit until they got sick of being pursued. Good job, honey!

I finally finished sorting through all our photos and have caught up on laundry. Back to tagging sheep and rebuilding raised beds. Sigh.

That’s us. We even have certificates to prove it. We went on a submarine in Barbados. We had done a semi-sub tour last year in Grand Cayman and were looking forward to actually submerging. The onboard experience between the two is very similar and both visited shipwrecks. Unfortunately, the deeper you go, the harder it is to photograph as it’s much darker. My biggest thrill was seeing a sea turtle which you can hopefully make out in the last photo.

We spent a day on Devil’s Island after reaching the Atlantic Ocean. We booked a zodiac boat island tour to the main island where the prisoners were kept until the facility closed in 1953. Our ship had the movie Papillon available on demand in the cabins so we watched it early in our cruise to catch up on the history and brutality of the penal colony. Our tour was a go, then put on hold because of a missile launch from the island was rescheduled to the day we arrived. Then the missile was rescheduled again but there was a port worker strike. The strike was solved then 10 minutes before we left for the tour we were notified of an unplanned military exercise on the island. So… they gave us the day on the adjacent island that housed the prison’s guard staff, hospital and solitary confinement.
