Well fellow LJs, in eight hours I will be on a plane with my family for a two week stint in the Cayman Islands, where sadly I will not be woodworking but rather loafing on the beach with a cold cocktail in hand while I ponder weighty matters, such as “My ice seems to be melting—am I drinking too slowly?” or “Should we have steak or lobster for dinner tonight?”. You know, really important stuff like that. :)

Anybody else enjoyed / enjoying / planning to enjoy a vacation recently or soon? If so, where to? Share a picture or a story if you care to! Lest we forget, there is more to life than woodworking!

-- John, BC, Canada

Unfortunately due to my project allocation this year, I won’t be able to take any time of. This is the second year in a row I wasn’t able to use any vacation time. I have 16 weeks (about 4 months!) of time off banked at this point. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some time off for the kids winter break in Feb so I can enjoy some cold drinks on a hot beach while it is freezing cold in the north east :)

If you snorkel- go to Seven Mile Beach. If you dive- get up to the North Wall.

My wife and I went to San Antonio in mid June. Damn hot down there. We were the only fools playing mini golf in 105 degree temperature.
Hope your family has a great time in the Cayman’s. It’s a beautiful place.

Peace to all.

Hey DKV, using my iPad to connect. I didn’t bring a laptop this time, wanting to travel a bit lighter and not bringing the laptop makes getting through airport security easier.

So, where are the pictures? Don’t forget you can get some huge, fantastic lobsters to eat, if that’s your thing. Sure wish the ipad had smell-o-rama. I know my Samsung Tab does.

Waho6o9, how can one possibly have fun without integrating electronics? I see the day when we will evolve to the point where cell phones will be integrated into our brains and our tablets will be part of our sunglasses. Boy, I wish I was there when that happens.

I’ve been thinking about another one, maybe in another 5 years or so, whine whine, whine.LOL Enjoy yourself have a lobster or two for me. If you want I can send you a photo of my table saw just to help with the withdrawals ha ha ha
