lead image for this date27 July 2021 : Recovery Day

We have found that adults do not travel well. However, waking up in a spectacular new place gives recovery a hearty good start! Sparkly blue morning; coffee and tea barely drunk, and we're off down the Beach Access across the street to see if there really is an ocean...

Really, not so much. We mostly hung out in the water. We went shopping. There was a lot of talking. The inter- and intra-family dynamics are fascinating, and often evoke laughter and a shared acknowledgment of consanguinity.

lead image for this date5 August 2021 : M-77

Rochelle presented me with my 2021 birthday card – reminiscent of 2017, same day, same island.   Inspected the house next door, at auction next month, no reserve, but valued at $8...
