  • Anniversary Again?! Blogging Discoveries

    23 Mar 2012

    Precisely one month ago, I launched this blog – Happy Anniversary! Okay, okay, I know it’s only been a month, and I promise I won’t coerce you into celebrating such minutia all the time. But, kind of like in the early stages of a new relationship when the couple celebrates mini-anniversaries, I’m just so darn [ more… ]

  • How Did You End Up On An Island? PART 1

    22 Mar 2012

    “How did you end up living on an island?” This question is posed to me on a near-weekly basis. The end result was a few decades in the making, so it defies any succinct answer, but I’ll give it a shot. Where Were You Before You Moved To The Island? After graduating law school and [ more… ]

  • Delicious Fish Dinner

    20 Mar 2012

    Good morning! I was thinking of you all as I cooked dinner last evening, so I decided to snap some pics and share my delicious fish dinner with you. Now, I’m no chef, and this is not a food blog. BUT this fish makes me happy, so here you go. 🙂 The real dinner process [ more… ]

  • Questions?

    19 Mar 2012

    Good morning, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I definitely did. I enjoyed home-puttering, boat ride, visit and cookout on neighboring island, dinner with friends, dress-up party at the local marina and plentiful dancing, leisurely breakfasts, movies from the comfort of couches, book-reading and – of course – Angel antics. My post today [ more… ]

  • Island Back-Story: How I Discovered This Tiny Paradise

    16 Mar 2012

    (Editor’s Note: Originally posted on March 16, 2012, this post was updated on September 25, 2012 to add in pictures! Once I retrieved old photo albums from storage, and consulted my dad’s pilot’s logs for details of our early trips, I corrected a few errors in memory and added the old pics! Enjoy.) Since the [ more… ]

  • Stateside Visits

    14 Mar 2012

    Ahhh, home sweet home! I am happily back on the island after being away much too long. Although I was keeping up with this blog from afar, I’ve actually been traveling through Florida the last couple of weeks. You might think I’d enjoy a return to “civilization,” with its restaurants and salons and Target stores. [ more… ]

  • Angel with Coconut (Video)

    12 Mar 2012

    Dear Readers, I thought you might enjoy a little snippet of my Island Dog in action. Angel looooooooves to chase and chew coconuts. These particular clips were not actually filmed in the islands; you’ll see Angel and me in a Florida backyard when we visited family recently. The first video clip (17 seconds) is a [ more… ]

  • Before & After

    09 Mar 2012

    This blog’s “About” page narrates a bit about my life before and after making the decisions that led me to life on an island. That’s the big picture. But all kinds of minutiae really drive home how my life has changed – for the better – from BEFORE to NOW. For example: Before – The [ more… ]

  • Random Things I Didn’t Know About Island Life

    07 Mar 2012

    After visiting this island for 25 years, sometimes for long stretches, I really thought I had a pretty good handle on the ins and outs of island living. Silly, I suppose, given that there is ALWAYS something new to learn in any venture. Also, I thought I knew how tough the ever-present elements of salt, [ more… ]

  • Sharks & Eels & Barracudas, Oh My!

    05 Mar 2012

    For as many years as I can remember as a child, I loved curling up with family and a bowl of popcorn and watching the once-a-year televised airing of The Wizard of Oz. (Somehow, that felt far more special than our ability now to download or watch a DVD any ol’ time you please.) Anyway, [ more… ]
