I have been sick for what seems like forever.  At first it was a horrible cough, which I worked through until yesterday, when I was so sick I couldn’t work.  I was still too sick to work today.  My darling MKL came to visit tonight and brought me two perfect early Christmas presents to make me feel better – even though just seeing him was enough.  At any rate, this picture, or any picture of Anegada, is a tonic for my sick and tired spirit.  Sorry for the slightly crooked horizon, and I promise I’ll be back to my merry Santa-hat-wearing, holiday-loving self before Christmas.

I thought it was time that we remembered the beach.  It’s been several months since I’ve seen one. and will be several months still.  But hopefully in February, we’ll be off to somewhere new.  I am thankful that it has been such lovely weather, as usually it’s cold and snowy by now, and yesterday was almost shorts weather.

Beautiful days
My comfy bed

Or at least one of the views from Marina Cay. Every view is fabulous there, but I always love hanging out on my little porch.  Guess I’m feeling a touch homesick for the islands.

Carib Beer is not available in my neck of the woods, so I have to indulge my fondness for it when I’m in the islands. As the leaves are turning, and the winds are blowing cool, and MKL even reported a dash of the “s” word tonight, I’m thinking about golden days on a warm beach.

Sometimes, I get homesick for one of my other homes. Let’s hope the islands can play keep away successfully with the storms approaching later this week.
