Island

in


Write about an island.

We arrived late in the afternoon,when the plane started it's descent all you could see were trees. The ride from the airport to the hotel didn't reveal much either. By the time we checked in and walked into town to get something to eat it was dark. We had a drink in a touristy bar and met some locals - islanders - from islands all over the caribbean. They insisted on buying us dinner when they heard that we had come there to live and find jobs. We had fish and dumplings that were delicious, especially considering that they came off of a truck,one of those stainless steel lunch trucks. Later we went back to our postage size room and slept. In the morning we walked the less than a mile walk into town and were stunned when we reached the harbor. The color of the water was aqua blue - turqoise, nothing like the murky steel grey we were used to at home.

Islands.
I love them.
My husband and I got married on the Island of Cancun. I take frequent painting trips to the islands of Maine. I have Island mentality. I'm a hermit artist type.

rdl, I'm really glad to hear yours is much better than before. Any improvement is improvement, right? I think I'd say I'm about in the same spot: functioning pretty well now, but still with definite limitations (no vacuuming for me yet!). But I am very happy and grateful to play a little guitar again!
