Re: What do you do on a rainy day in paradise?

How interesting...with the exception of a few, just about everything mentioned was done that day...@Sailordave: i'm not single I just thought that activity was a given...we all seem to be on the same page when it comes to a wet one....booze, music, sex, sleep and maybe a little work

Re: What do you do on a rainy day in paradise?

Today is an overcast, damp, humid, nasty day here in Paradise (Marathon, Florida). Since I've already fixed all the leaks, repaired just about everything that I can repair, I think I'll just take a walk before the rains hit and pretty much do nothing. Doing nothing is a neat thing to do, especially when you're down here in the sub-tropics. I can sit out on the deck and watch the young ladies walk down the dock, might even take a nap, which is also considered an activity while liging in Paradise.

Last night, I played music and sang to about 150 to 175 people that are also in what is known as the temporary mode down here. Some will spend the entire winter here, while others will just spend a couple weeks to a month or more in the temporary mode, time spent here before heading to another island, mainly the Bahamas. There were several other musicians here, all of which got a chance to perform for the same audience. It was a fun evening, and here in Paradise, it's something that takes place every Saturday night (weather permitting). Keep in mind that nearly all activities take place outdoors, so weather is a big determining factor.

Cheers from an old man currently living in Paradise,

Gary

Re: What do you do on a rainy day in paradise?

Rainy days are the perfect excuse for us to sit around and watch movies because the dark skies cause less of a glare on the screen.

Maybe sort and edit photos too.

Or if you don't feel like being lazy....clean the deck or dingy. Go snorkeling as long as its just rain. The fish are usually more plentiful. Just be productive....Life's to short to re-watch movies. :-)

Re: What do you do on a rainy day in paradise?

here in pair a dice it usually only rains in summer--at which time i am riding a dock, as storms in summer here have names and bad dispositions.

when i ride dock, which is only in summer months, i have air conditioning, hot running water(from sky) and tarps on topsides so i dont get the wood part of my boat soaked with fresh water.....and i over use the interwebz and read books and walk around in rain , once the wind lays down.....

Re: What do you do on a rainy day in paradise?

Rainy days are shower days.
Grab some soap and a partner for the hard to reach/fun to reach places.

I'm jealous of ya'll. We are still up North this winter but next year we will be down where ya'll are. We will most likely be doing schoolwork, play some, and then watch a movie or two on a rainy day. :-)
