    Is Manchebo busy? Any turtle corrals? It would be so nice if you got to see a hatching.

    Welcome 'home' Lisa! A beautiful day to welcome you! Peg, there are turtle corrals along Eagle Beach. I noticed yesterday the board that keeps track of how many nestings showed more for this year than last year.

    Here's is Lisa's frozen mojito.

    I have 2 words about mojitos...frozen or otherwise (yuk and gag)

    I am interested to read Lisa's opinion.

    I’m not generally a mojito fan, but Manchebo’s version is really refreshing. I would be okay with sitting at Pega Pega today drinking a mojito!

    Andrea.... if you think that's rough.... you should try a Manchito...! Not even on the menu...but will make it if you ask!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    I had a manchito (I think that is what it was) when Paul and I met up with Peg and Tom at the Pega Pega!

    Well, yuck was pretty much my reaction to the frozen mojito. Too much lime pulp in it and too tart. Wiped out that memory with a Chill (Chuck, you drank all the Brights!). Was at the beach at 9:30 and that's where I planted myself until around 3:30 with swim breaks. The water is actually a bit chilly (I can deal with it coming from New England). Had a burger and fries for lunch with that Chill. Later I wanted to try a different cocktail (after all, I have to do some advance taste testing for Priscilla) so Joseul suggested a Manchito. Okay, I'm game. It's nothing more than that darn frozen mojito with some mango puree thrown in! Double yuck but I "forced" it down. Heehee.
    It turned very windy and is now pretty overcast. Still better than Connecticut!
    Back up to room to shower, relax and fill you all in. Dinner at Chophouse tonight for their almond crusted grouper. I've been thinking about it for two years! Asked to sit in Harold's section if he's working tonight. No more drink experiments. I'm sticking with my favorite - Tito's Cosmo (or two).
    Priscilla arrives around lunchtime tomorrow. Later peeps!
