Title: My 19 year old goes on an Adventure Ride; Caribbean Stlye ...
Post by: Ian in Great Brak River on May 30, 2020, 10:06:08 pm
What does one do in these crazy times with a bored 19 year old?  ... well, we all know that they can get up to all kindsa shite if we ignore them, so I decide to take her on a local adventure ride.

But first, her ID - so there is no political drama on this child friendly forum. Yep, proof that she was born in December 2001.

She's normally dressed like this;

But just for you, she's willing to go naked for this ride.

Nice little number, ne?

Unlike most 19 year olds that I know off, she is keen on Botany ... as in tree's ... local trees. Here she's getting a close look at two; a local edible Sea Grape in the lower foreground and an imported Australian Casuarina in the background. Both hardy trees that flourish in this harsh climate of sand, sun and sea.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/923/Fji0Uj.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pnFji0Ujj)

My personal favorite; the Bismarckia.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/IXimTq.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pmIXimTqj)

Then follows the Island Ficus.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/wNFTb9.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pmwNFTb9j)

The last of the late blooming Bougainvillea.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/923/0YGSSd.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pn0YGSSdj)

And the soon to bloom Frangipani.

In my neighbourhood there's lotsa rules 'n regulations;

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/gfmIdw.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pmgfmIdwj)

Some odd looking gates too ...

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/924/vJxXjI.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/povJxXjIj)

... but that's the exception, most are nice and humble, as we see whilst we continue to explore.

These two majestic gents are Royal Palms.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/923/B9wGaq.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pnB9wGaqj)

But all are outnumbered by the humble Palm, either imported from Jamaica or Malaysia.

We see lovely big houses, nice driveway that one has.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/8FyJN7.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pm8FyJN7j)

Some are still working on their driveway ideas.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/923/Nm6w3e.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pnNm6w3ej)

I know that this driveway is for rent through the Club.

Living between 2 and 6 meter above Sea level means there are lots of canals with fancy boats floating about in them. My 19 year old is fascinated but also quite scared of water, her boots are not really waterproof.

We continue our Adventure Ride and stop at another huge Island Ficus tree. Majestic but fragile as they have a shallow surface root system and are prone to toppling over in strong winds ... like in bloody hurricanes for example.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/I63FKI.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pmI63FKIj)

Here on the right we have a Kamalame Tree (or Gumbo Limbo in the US of A) and on the left an ultra rare Bahamian Mahogany.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/0Gvgt1.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pm0Gvgt1j)

For at least the last 14 years this has been an abandoned wreck of a house, great to see someone has new driveway ideas for it.

We stop to look at Castles and Haciendas built side by side, with Poincianas in the foreground.

Scattered amongst all this is some green untouched lots that can be bought and built upon if the need takes you. This one has a view over the Golf Course.

Local signs point out that kids have right of way to play ... my 19 year old likes that indeed.

The Biggest Tree Here Is The Silk Cotton Tree ... it has right of way in the middle of the big circle ... known as a round-a-bout out here. For once my 19 year old is speechless ... a very rare occurrence I can assure you. Usually one can't tell them anything as they know it all.

My impatient-to-move-on 19 year old asks why I am staring at this big sail boat? ... I tell her in another life I sailed into this marina in 1991 on a 77ft sail boat that was to change my entire life. She is totally unimpressed ... teenagers today!

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/ewYYB8.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pmewYYB8j)

The crew on the boats in the marine have their very own Caribbean Private Beach.

Way back in 1951 when the Gent who bought this swamp needed to fill it in, they dug canals and used the fill as landfill. Today one plot like this is the equivalent of what all 2000 acres of swamp cost back then. The locals though he was nuts.

Note quite as exotic as Nonekings neighbourhood but we do have some real Bahamians here too. This is a Rainbow Boa (pity no clear sunlight on her but one can just about see the shine on the skin) ... she is about 2m in length, tranquil, completely wild, and has lived peacefully on our 8acre plot for 9 years now. There are 3 males around too that I see once a month or so. For now she lives about 10m front my front door.

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/923/Vpx2BF.jpg) (https://imageshack.com/i/pnVpx2BFj)

Unfortunately, 3 weeks ago the water meter reader guy nearly killed her as she had made a nest in his water meter box ... I drove by just as he started beating on her with a PVC pipe ... lets just say he has seen the light since then and will let my fcuking snakes live in peace going forward. Its been a while now but she looks a little better today.

Some folks hide their driveway projects behind fancy camo netting ...

At least the local dogs have been taught to pick up and deposit after themselves ... not like most of the other dogs I know.

I'm starting to hear comments about food and sleep from my 19 year old so deduce it's time to head home, but first I show her that some houses here have Golf Courses as their back gardens.

Hi subie. We are transiting from Winter (the dryish tourist season) to Summer (the employees and mosquito rainy season) so the water temp goes up from 21-25 to 28-32C. This because the wind swings from NE to SE. Climate change you ask?? Absolutely, the high tides are higher and the lows are lower.

Hi BLK. Not quite as nice as St Francis but New Providence Island in the Bahamas. The Yam was an eBay special at $2500, she came from Chicago with 16500miles on the clock in 2010. Now on 36k miles or about 51k kms. Most locals have no contact with wildlife and its not a Natural Science subject in school so the killit side kicks in. Its an unmitigated disaster here and the Boa’s are endangered because of it.

Wow, thanks for showing us your hot 19 year old >:D as well as that beautiful place that you call home.  It looks so peacfull, where everybody?   :peepwall:

Our Corovid 19 stats here are 101 cases and 11 deaths. The Govt. reaction is way over the top. Curfew at nights from 9pm to 5am and total homebound curfew from 9pm Friday to 5am Monday morning. Perfect time to go for a ride as no one about.

My BIL is ferrying a yacht from St.Thomas down south to some island where it will be put on dry dock for the owners.
He has to stay 2 weeks on the yacht before flying home.
Weird how some places have these strict rules. St.Thomas had very lenient rules and people were asked to go outside as much as possible and neither did any wear masks outside only inside businesses. It is a fact that 97% of infections took place inside so it makes sense to be outside. St.Thomas is opening for tourism again.

So... either the island has a super high death rate of over 10%, or there is a much higher infection rate that the government are totally unaware of.

I know my starboard from my port, aft from fo'ard and barnacle from binnacle. Het jy vir my werk daar?  :lol8:

Looks very nice Ian.  I say that with the knowledge that being somewhere on holiday and being somewhere for work are light years apart.  Still a very pretty place. 

Plus, you can swim in June  :biggrin:

Plus of course, the 19 year old.

Pity the 19 year old did not ride past the beach where all the other 19 year old's were skinny dipping? ;) :lol8:

Quite correct Ri, the worldwide average seems to indicate a 5 to 8% ration, that would indicate our testing numbers to be too optimistic.

Quite correct Dors, it's a 24/7 job. It is certainly not Marguerites on the beach every day, the reality is quite different I can assure you. Today and Friday are holidays here but I am at work.
