Fell in love with a new dog, Brandy. She hangs out at Crazy Canuck's. This is a wonderful bar that is owned by two lovely people, Don and Carol. I spent at least 2 hours a day here throwing a rock to a dog named Brandy (gorgeous german shephard). What a doll. The people at Canuck's are a hoot and they make you feel right at home. Hang out there on Monday nights if you can, they have a great band and I danced to the thong song with the owner.
Loved Banana Beach (again for the third time). Tim (the manager there) didn't even give me a hard time when I tried to sneak Brandy up to my room to give her some food. This has to be the best place on the island to stay. The views from the oceanfront rooms are to die for.
Hung out at BC's also. Charlene and Bruce are great and the locals who hang out there are wonderful. If you happen to stop by, say hi to Marlboro Man and Robbie for me.
Went cavetubing with Seaduced and had a ball. Did a lot of resting and swimming. Met some nice people from the board. Ate breakfast at Papi's and he always has the best snapper grilled in wine with garlic sauce (yummee). I know this is rambling, but I just wanted to share some of my trip with you. Hope you all go and have a great time and say hi to my friends down there for me.

Becky - glad you had a great time. Refresh my memory - where is Crazy Canucks? And you say the dog hangs out there? Maybe I'll bring a dog frisbie or something. Should I bring a jacket or something into the caves? What kind of shoes did you wear?

Hey Gela, Crazy Canucks is a stone throw away from Coconuts. Right up the road. Brandy is a dog who has taken up temporary residene there. She's a real sweetheart.
Regarding the cavetubing, it was just a little cool in the caves. I'd say wear something long sleeved, but you are just going to get wet anyway.
I wore gym shoes on the ride there from the hotel to Jaguar Paw. Once we reached Jaguar Paw though I changed into flip flops and wore them for the walk down to the caves (about a 15 minute walk). Lost those dang flip flops though when I fell off my tube in the middle of the cave. Oh well. You will have fun though.

Hey everybody: the trip was absolutely fantastic (again!). I am still in "very relaxed" mode. The body is back, but not the mind! LOL! I didn't get in until almost 1 a.m. on Sunday (long story). I will post about my vacation in the next few days.
