Drop and give me 10 Private!

The cruising life is a strange one. 
There are moments of physical exertion and activity interspersed
with idle time and well, let's face it, laziness! 
When we stay in one place like Grenada we pass many a day just laying
 around the boat, reading a book or maybe playing a game.
Add that to our time spent in the States where everything is super-sized
and there is always ice cream in the freezer and well the end result
 isn't pretty!  I've been trying to combat the inevitable effects of that
 with a little more exercise.

My friend Hope had friends visiting and one of the ladies is
a water aerobics instructor.  She taught us a few exercises that we
 can do when we are at the pool. 
I love working out in the water.  No sweating!

I've been diligently going to yoga twice a week. 
This is my instructor Pierre Yve doing a little warm-up before
class one morning.  I can do yoga for the next 20 years
 and I'll never be able to stand on my head.  OK, let's be honest.
I don't really want to stand on my head. 
But I will admit that yoga has been
good for me and I'm feeling stronger.

The yoga class takes place at the marina on the stage overlooking
the Tiki Bar and Prickly Bay.  Not a bad setting.
And of course there are always beautiful roads to walk on.
On this day Jim and I walked out to Prickly Point at the end of the bay. 
It's a residential area of beautiful homes.

The homes are there.  It's just that most of them are behind big fences!

The view across Prickly Bay. 
That's Merengue anchored in her usual spot along the west shore.

Whew, I'm worn out just thinking about all that.
Is it happy hour yet?
