A Hashing We Will Go!

Long-time followers of this blog know that Jim and I did a bit of hashing during our first season in Grenada.  We still have the scars to prove it!  After several hashes, one of which I considered good, I gave it up. 
I developed rules related to hashing.
Rule #1:  Never, ever do another hash.
Rule #2:  if wavering, see rule #1.
So  it was a great surprise when I decided that I wanted to hash last weekend.
(Someone grab some smelling salts and get my friend Renee up off of the floor)

Of course, it rained hard during the day.  It always seems to rain hard to insure a nice, muddy trail.  This was a moonlight hash and those have to be easy to so that no one gets lost in the rain forest or falls off of a cliff in the dark.  Even better, this one was starting at the Tiki Bar, right here in Prickly Bay.  Very convenient!  Was destiny calling me?  The sky looked ominous when we headed out around 5:30 p.m.  I don't think we'll see that full moon tonight.

A nice surprise at the Tiki Bar.  This is Lincus who we met hashing 2 years ago.
The walkers route turned out to be just what I was hoping for, a nice hike on the roads above Prickly Bay.  Yes, it did rain on us but the temperatures were cool and comfortable.  The walk was about 4 miles with a few steep hills to insure a good workout.
Back at the Tiki Bar, wet but feeling good.
The 3 for 10EC Caribs (about $1.25 U.S. each) never tasted better!
Will I do another one?  You'll have to wait until the next full-moon to see.
