A Bird's Eye View

We did a little exploring yesterday; got a few shots of the Club House ruins. I'll post some of those when done weeding through them.

After our little expedition we felt a bit parched so we meandered up to Rocky Hill for something cool to drink. Sitting around the open air bar that's overlooking the pool, we enjoyed the food and drink, but the company of the proprietors and patrons was most enjoyable. The shade, the breeze, and the conversations that ensue is a big part of the rose sniffing we enjoy so much.

Last night was Chill and Grill, but we overheard there was some kind of dust up between the Griller and the marina so the party was moved to the famous Tamboo Club. (Think, Don't Stop The Carnival)
That was even cooler, for us anyway.
Hanging out in the private Tamboo Club, we could imagine, many years ago, the likes of Cary Grant and Bridget Bardot enjoying the same space we were.
The Tamboo Club Restaurant was founded in the early 1970s by Earl Blackwell, Jim Raymond, Douglass Fairbanks Jr, and Frank Shields and was a popular hang out for celebrities such as Cary Grant, Brigitte Bardot and Walter Cronkite. 

 The Tamboo Club

As I've posted earlier, there's a lot of that kind of thing around here. Famous and some infamous.

Anyway, yesterday was quite a nice day. After months of being caught up in the projects revolving around Jupiter and Spearfish, we'd forgotten how much we enjoy this life.

I've got a feeling this is going to be a good trip.

Oh yeah, the bird's eye view — I found this YouTube... Drone-shot video using a GoPro. A couple of young folks did a nice job capturing the whole cay and mashing it up on one video.

Enjoy.

Adios,
