most places I think use them about 2 weeks. Ask around. As duckfat mentioned, you can typically find fresh all year if you ask around but that's a different discussion I'll leave alone.

Nude Resorts, Beaches and Cruises
12 minutes ago
Looking to visit either BVI or St. Marten this November/December with my GF and want to go to the 'no shoes, no shirt, no problem' areas. Not looking for public sex sites so to speak (although absolutely nothing against those who are) instead we are looking for more local dive beach bars where she can wear some pretty revealing clothes with no issue. Including loosing her top when the mood is right. Also some barely/no clothed catamaran rides for (2), awesome beaches, maybe a sensual massage for her, and cool local nightlife. Not looking to be fenced in at a resort, just not our style. As a side highlight, if we happen to meet the right he or she to meet up with my gf . . .

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you! pepsi

pat, we should team up with your written reports and my aerials…lol
Carol, I remember seeing the name not long ago but I forget. I think it was for sale at the time. I’ll ask Jules when we go for dinner tomorrow night.
CaribLee…I have three RPAS’ but this is my DJI Air2s. I capture photos in RAW format thus the huge files
MXS…I’ll get some of Happy Bay before I leave
the captain…it’s getting really difficult lately to get permission through DJI but there is a workaround. If you’re interested send me a message and I’ll explain.
Thanks bostonbob

Getting the team in quickly might be a issue with the runway blocked. Water taxi to the rescue!

I spoke to Nadia today on another subject and the aircraft has been cleared for some days and the airport has been open. She said as soon as the "investigation was complete in a few days" the aircraft would return to EIS.

I assume the passengers would have only thought it was a rough landing? Unless the pilot said "oh crap". Then the fingernails dig into the armrest.

Nadia told me the delay is their version of our FAA. I did not know the runway was blocked too. Thanks for your info.

Repairing anything on Anegada is a challenge. I hope they can get it repaired quickly but it remains to be seen.

George - that is what my husband said as well when we were looking at the photos (he is a pilot as well). Wonder who was flying - Jamie is our favorite IB pilot - if she was flying I am sure she handled it well.

This man was very lucky to have been shot in the leg and not elsewhere. As a career banker, I have had the misfortune to have been robbed several times, twice at gun-point. On one occasion, I had the ceiling shot out over my head by an impatient young man who thought we were not putting the cash into his bag fast enough. After that, he put the gun to the manager's head.

NEVER, EVER intervene, interfere - whatever you want to call it - with someone with a gun under these circumstances.

Things could have been so much worse for this tourist and others in the restaurant.

Glad to hear the man recovered physically. Not so sure about his psychological state, though.

You chose the place to order lobster that is most likely to serve frozen mush whether the season is open or closed. Go to Potter's next time.
