Mysteries of Sound and Fruit

Sunshine Finally!

sunny 84 °F

Sunday, 11/7/10-Monday, 11/8/10. I was awakened early Sunday morning by a loud noise that sounded like someone throwing stones at the windows and roof. I got up to investigate. There was no one or nothing near the house but as soon as I was up, it stopped. This morning I was up early anyway and all of a sudden the same noise started up again. I looked out the window and it was two large birds, looking similar to Toucans, pecking at the windows and roof. Mystery solved.

Yesterday afternoon my neighbor, the caretaker from next door, came over and presented me with an unfamiliar looking piece of fruit. I did not have the presence of mind to ask him what it was but I was certain I could find out so I went on the internet and did some research. The closest thing I could come to was that it was a strange variety of mango. I even showed it to my cousin Karen who lives in California (we were Skyping last night) and she couldn’t identify it either.

This morning he comes over again with two large greenish, yellow things and I did ask what these were and he said aguacates (avocados). I had never seen them this large! I think he told me they grew in the back yard and that he doesn’t like them. I asked him what he had given me yesterday and he told me it was a papaya. Another mystery solved!

The sun finally came out today after 7 solid days of rain. I washed my sheets and am headed to the beach to take some pictures. Hope you all have a nice day!
