Let me introduce you to my little friend…

My head is still not back from our getaway and seriously, I am not functioning in this area code worth a darn yet!  When I awoke this morning and my feet touched carpeting instead of tile I was confused for a couple of seconds.  When I heard the sounds of people scurrying off to work or school in their vehicles there was wistfulness as I longed for the former sounds that greeted me when my little eyes opened to meet the new day – the sounds of ocean waves lapping against the shore and birdies chirping.  Normally I am not at my best first thing in the morning but there?  There were days when I was out on the beach getting in a wonderful morning constitutional at 7 a.m.  Just me, DH always slept in.  Poor guy, he really needed to catch up on some rest.

But back to the topic at hand.  These little guys were everywhere! On the sidewalks, on trees, scampering past us as we walked around; they were speedy little buggers.  There are a lot of lizards on this island – a lot!  Never have I seen so many colors and sizes in my life (and wait till you see the post about the granddaddy of them all).  I think it is called a curly tailed gecko and if not, I’m calling it that anyway.  After all, c’mon! Look at that tail.

    I love those little geckos, we used to have them living in our garden when we were kids, smaller than those ones though, but just as cute, until their tails fell off if you caught them!! eeoo.. c

    TD: I wondered what had happened to you. I can hardly wait to hear all about your trip. I bet you took some lovely pics, especially on your early morning walks. You and I are alike–there is nothing as exhilirating as greeting the dawn! Welcome back.

  5. Now that sounds like one heck of a vacation! I’ve never been anywhere particularly tropical, and now you’ve made me crazy with wanderlust yet again…
