Photographic Adventures in Paradise
In the past 2 weeks my blog has been hacked. We have removed the malware the hacker installed and strengthened our security measures. I’m sorry that my many readers were not able to access the blog during this very frustrating time for me. No one was endangered because the Google folks shut down this site as soon as the malware was detected and this prevented it from being spread. Welcome back……………Tom
What have we been up to lately? On the 6th we attended a concert…….

Our contributor Wendy had been back in town for the past 10 days. She was finally able to close on her condo which took one year! We had Wendy over for dinner her first night back and she brought us all kinds of goodies that we cannot buy here. Triscuit crackers for one, my absolute favorite, Orange bitters for our Martini’s, and my repaired DSLR camera. We went to the beach with her on Sunday and it was a magnificent day. The water was calm, the breezes refreshing and the temps low compared to recent hot and humid weather……
Yes you can have your on the beach cervesas……

Then Tuesday morning Howard, Renato, Noel, Rosalinda, and Wendy joined us for breakfast at the Dolceze restaurant here in the neighborhood. Later in the afternoon we had the weekly bridge club card game and dinner at Howard and Renato’s home. Wednesday we finally got to recharge ourselves and just spend the day swimming and relaxing poolside. Suzie made us a great dinner of Penne pasta with Italian sausage and a salad. We enjoyed dining poolside on the casita patio complete with candles and satellite radio providing the romantic atmosphere. Today, (Thursday) Suzie is off to take Wendy to the airport. She is heading back to New York. Her husband Bert retires in about 10 more working days and then they will return in August for a lengthy stay. Meanwhile, I’m waiting for Rosie to arrive to do her weekly cleaning of our home. Thank God for Rosie!
We have a pretty busy schedule from week to week and we often wonder how we ever had time to fit working into our lives…….
