Paradise

Terry and I just returned from a full week on a tropical island paradise. I have a lot to share, and will hopefully be able to form sentences that will convey my thoughts on re-entry, disconnecting, eating, and so much more, but since a picture is worth a thousand words, how about if I draw from my memory card for my first post about my trip?


Taking in the view from our very small plane




Home Sweet Home




What did we do? A lot of this . . . .


Reading


Eating (this was the view from our favorite lunch table)

We knew that the vibrant blues of the water and the naturally cool Caribbean breezes made us feel like we were in paradise, but when we saw this tree, we realized that we may have actually found the Garden of Eden.


This is the sign on the tree:

Ohhh....sigh....that's where I *wanted* to go for our recent getaway. It looks like you ended up in paradise--literally. We settled for Florida instead and did many of the same things, without the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil nearby, and without those amazing beds in that beautiful room, or the coral reefs and snorkling, or the tropical fruit, or the amazing meals.

Oh well.

We were together near a large body of saltwater and white sandy beaches. That was nice.

How did duplicate comments get up there?

I guess I'm doubly impressed with your destination! Feel free to delete one (and this one).
