“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away”
There are so many things we find enjoyable in this island of "ours". A favorite of ours is to just go out for a walk never knowing what and who we may run into......so different from back home where life is so hectic you just want to run in and out of your apartment without really running into anyone.
Out here we take time to look and smell the air, the ocean, look for starfish, fishes, there is always fruit on the trees. My favorite is to just pick one and eat as we walk along. Arvid does not approve too much of this but I am having a blast...there's mangoes, papayas, tamarinds, seagrapes, coconuts and much more. I love it all and I have a great time just picking and eating as we go along.....right now we are having some coconut...the same ones I picked from the tree...
Another nice thing about our walks is that we go by all these houses with pretty names. Yes here in Eleuthera every house has a name. For instance ours is called The Lil Red House.
Here are some names of some other houses also. Dolcevita....is an Italian Restaurant. Excellent food.
Foolish Pleasures is another very beautiful place. It's a Waterfront home on a private beach. Includes 4-person Jacuzzi. We have stayed here many times before owning the Lil Red... As you can see the homes all have very cute names and many of the signs for them are made from driftwod....others are just painted straight onto the rocks...
Most of these homes belong to Americans who when not living in them rent them out. We do not rent out our Lil Red....

We are really loving this Island Living. Seems like Brutus is also having a great time here. This trip he is much more relaxed and calm. He now knows that this is another of his homes as well.
Here he is fast asleep under his bed. This kitty has it made and he knows it!!!
