Lure of the Islands

Apparently nothing brings friends and family together like when you move to a hot vacation spot.

I have a fairly close knit family, but like many families we are all spread apart, living in various spots around the globe. We can go for years without seeing each other. With email and iChat it's easy to keep in touch.

But since I've moved back to the Bahamas all I've heard from almost all my friends and family is how they are planning a visit. Funny, no one seemed all that eager to come visit me before I moved here. But that's the way it is when you live in a tourist paradise. I wonder why my parents ever moved away. This was a great place to grow up.

Well, I've been cleaning up my apartment today because my cousin, Emma and her family will be arriving tomorrow. I haven't seen her in two years, not since her wedding in Wisconsin. Wisconsin [shudder]. Not for me, here we are in March and I'm kicking back with bare feet, a tank top and shorts listening to the sound of the ocean. Gotta love it. And Emma will too.
