Have you ever been on a beach with sand so brilliantly white and water so passionately blue that it moved your spirit and sparked your soul?

Quote of the Day: “On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.” — Jack Kerouac

Daily gratitudes:
A lovely day
Getting the knee-high grass one-third mowed with the push mower
Air conditioning
Old friends

It was cloudy here today, lowering clouds that made my spirits droopy. But I lay on the grass and read while MKL tried to get one of the fleet to start, so all in all, it was a lovely day.  It would have been nice to have been laying on the sand at Long Bay Beach, but we did squeeze in a little sun. This Long Bay Beach is by the Beef Island Airport, and is not well-known, so it is never crowded. It has deep, soft, white sand, and a snorkeling trail, and you have to venture down a muddy road to access it. It’s a quintessential Caribbean spot.

Finding special gifts for people you love
Storm clouds
Vivid dreams


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

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.

Most days at Cow Wreck Beach are not quite this quiet, but they are quite often this beautiful.
