How much overtime can I work? and When can we get back to AC?
These are the two questions I'm left with upon returning home. My wife rushed me to the hospital last night for Belikin withdrawal - the Doc said I was a quart low.
This message board proved to be a great asset during our time in AC. We met many great people:
Capt Jeff, Clarissa, Gene, Rich and Debbie, Tom and Lynette, Jackie, Becky, Mr & Mrs Chucklebutt, and even Pedro and Charlie (the dog). By the by, Gene and River shark I hope your Blue Hole trip went off without a hitch. These are just a few of the wonderful people we met, but a Belikin induced haze may have made me forget a few other names.
Some top picks, as a fan of eating - Elvie's kitchen cannot be missed, excellent food, unique atmosphere and the best key lime pie in AC. (And I tried quite a few). Estelle's was great and so cheap. Rubie's also great. Capricorn was good, if not a little overpriced. Sweet Basil another great place. And whenever we make it back to AC we will definitely be at BC's for the Sunday BBQ. I only wish they'd had the BBQ there every day of the week. Lagniappe was also a great dinner - Great food and company.
Despite the high winds, power outage and unfavorable seas, I was able to achieve my PADI open water certification while in AC and cannot wait to get back for more exploring. So, if anybody has a hot tip on a horse or better yet the winning lottery numbers, please feel free to share that info so we can start booking a return trip. For all upcoming travelers have a cold Belikin for me.... or two... or three... or four...... :p
