Something new

We see some very interesting things from our back patio, including monkeys, kite-surfers, horses, weddings, pelicans, and we even had a front-row seat for hurricane Earl last September. But this last week we had something new to see- a few times a day there have been skydivers floating by our window and onto the Marriott beach about 50 yards away. It's been fun to watch, and the kids have something new to get excited about. When they hear an airplane overhead or see the flag out in the sand, they come screaming because they know the skydivers will be coming soon.

The "Graceful Savage"

Over the holiday we happened to spot the elusive and infamous "Voo-Doo Man" over in our neighborhood. It was unusual to see him out and about and away from his "home." Since he was not at home, my friend Angela and I decided to go by and take pictures because we really do want a picture of where he lives.

We're not sure which name he actually refers to himself as- "Voo-Doo Man" as it says on one sign, or "The Graceful Savage" as another reads. I really don't know if he's as scary as he looks either, but the rumors and stories are out there, and most people say they are scared to take his picture because he will cast a spell on you. Hmmmmm. This is one interesting character though, and when it comes to fitness, he is one bad dude. Can you see the concrete molds made out of 5-gallon buckets that he uses for weightlifting on the side of the road ?
