Another Month in Paradise

2012-10-23

tl;dr: After a month down here in paradise, things are pretty much the same.

Yes, another blog post about the freaking Florida Keys. I know the eight people who read this enjoy my "thrill of variety, agony of repeat" approach. Sorry.

It's a little cooler now than it was when I first arrived. One morning I bet it got all the way down to seventy degrees. All of the island workers got off the bus wearing jackets or coats. All of them. Other than that the weather hasn't changed at all. It's still warm, humid, windy with a chance for rain. How do people live like this?

I don't bike as much now, but I do jog a little more. I'm suffering from the exact opposite of choice fatigue. When I leave the island, do I go east? Or do I go west?

I've made a great deal of headway on my project from a development standpoint. I've made almost zero headway from a deployment standpoint. Only a single person in this resort has the authority to make decisions, and woe is you if you make a decision and you aren't him. He's been very busy, so I have yet to get any meaningful feedback.

A postcard was requested. I am told that in the Keys actual postcards are lame, unless the postcard medium happens to be a coconut. So I wrote one up and went to the post office. I told the lady working, "I'm told this is customary." She didn't bat an eye. "Yep."

Here's a vancam of me coming back across the Seven Mile Bridge through the rain and some nasty cross-winds.






am I doing it right?
