Caribbean custom is to sprinkle rum on the foundation as it is being poured. Mr. Big and I were out of town when the main house foundation was poured, but the garage will be going down tomorrow. We thought today was the perfect opportunity to catch up.
So here we've got the special bottle of rum that we decided to use. I had gotten it as a gift on a business trip to Anguilla last year and thought that the name was great (PYRAT = pirate!). Very Caribbean!
And of course, we enjoyed a glass ourselves along the way. In any case, our visitors can now rest well knowing that the house has been properly blessed!
