Gwen and I hung around "The Lounge" today working, she on her manuscripts and me on my new blog. The rest of the crew with Mike as camera man took off back to Whiskey Point for another go. The word on their return was that it was pretty windy, and the new place that they got their boards from gave them un-waxed boards that were way too small for their level. They still managed to get up. Seth is really doing quite well. 

The night was relaxing with the boys working on setting up a screen to watch a movie from the computer with the little projector I brought. They finally managed after many attempts to drape a sheet over a wall behind where we sit. They watched Alien, the original from 1979. That is they watched it until the power went out and then they finished it in their room.

That was at 10:30 pm last night. The power is still out all over the province for some reason. The night was a little warm with no wind, but that was only half the reason we could not sleep. BTW thinks to a diesel generator, we have had power since around 11:00 am. Hopefully, that will continue for the night. That generator is a real profit muncher for this small operation.

The rest of the reason for the lack of sleep was the weekly Saturday party going down at Mambo's. Mambo's is a good 1.5 km down the beach. The music sounded like they were our neighbors. It was loud techno/trance with a very heavy beat. The party ended at 5am. Obviously, they started the generator a little earlier than we did. We were all looking a little rough this morning. Coen asked this morning, "What, there was a party?" Ok, most of us had trouble.

Next week, we will just go on down there. If you can not beat them, you might as well join them.
