It rained pretty much non-stop for the first three weeks of November causing a lot of areas to flood.
It seemed to go on forever and after constantly shloshing, ankle-deep, through the river that used to be my lane, I bought some worm tablets and called it a day. I am horrified to think of the nastiness that lurks in these puddles. If you don’t know about routine de-worming, here’s a post. We used to do this in Africa a lot – the dogs and children were all de-wormed at the same time. My dogs, too, grew tired of sitting around the house and not being able to go on their usual beach runs.
And then we got sick, along with most of Placencia, which put us out of commission for about two weeks – Uugh!
Then, things started looking up. We found amazing forever homes for two of our five dogs.
We also found a home for sweet Lena but, unfortunately, the dog that already lived there didn’t take to her and we brought her back home again. Still, three dogs is much easier to handle (and feed) than five.
Almost all of our friends in our Wednesday Get-togethers group are back and we resumed them once again. There are more of us now and we decided to meet at Tipsy Tuna for wings which was great fun. A couple who were on holiday but planning to move here in January, joined us.
The 19th marked Garifuna Settlement Day but we weren’t well enough to watch the re-enactment of that day. Here’s a post about last year’s re-enactment.
And then, around the 20th, the rain stopped and the sun came out. It was picture-perfect weather and we went to the beach for the first time in months.
Tourists starting arriving in their droves and business picked up.
