Ick 'itis and bikini pics

Dean's Blue Hole
The beach at Dean's Blue Hole

 Ok - so i got tired of fighting with Blogger over placement of these photos!!!!! First up are some shots of the beaches and blue holes and other stunning landscapes in Long Island, Bahamas!
Dean's Blue Hole

A view from up at Columbus Monument. No photoshop needed!

So before I get to the good stuff.... I've been fighting what I'd been told was tonsilitis for a few weeks. well when i didn't seem to be getting any resolution, I decided to try another Ear Nose Throat specialist. He was extremely thorough and told me I definitely have some issues and tonsilitis is not one of them! I've got sinusitis, otitis media, rhinitis and pharyngitis! I mean if you're gonna do it, do it all the way, right?!?!?
So I now have some answers and a small pharmacy.... pills, liquids, drops, gels... you name it. And tomorrow I have to get a CT scan of my sinus to rule out any polyps or any such fun stuff. At least I feel like I'm on the way to getting rid of this incessant pressure in the left side of my face and ear!

The trip to Long Island (Bahamas) was a blast! My girlfriends and I made the most of the brief getaway. We met all the characters on the island, saw all the beautiful sites and generally had fun. Of course I came home feeling like I need a vacation to recuperate from the mini vacay! I'm far too old to be out til 2am every night.

As promised, I have a couple of pics of me in my bikini and one in my beach wrap. Unfortunately I'm the photographer in the group so there's not a whole lot of me except when I demanded someone take the camera and snap a shot!!!!!

Here is day two with Michelle and Cherry. We're at the Columbus Monument overlooking beautiful blue waters
Added this pic because I just realised my legs are kinda skinny!

My friend Cherry and I. I look EXTRA pale next to her, but then this belly hasn't seen the sun in a lifetime!

This shot doesn't cut me at the best spot, but what the hell!

These pics were all taken at the beach next to Dean's Blue Hole. It's the deepest blue hole in the world!
