Eleuthera, Bahamas...

Why live for tomorrow and not be enjoying today...

Soon we will be Eleuthera........our once second home.  Arvid is only talking about that and nothing else.  For him being there is like being in heaven.

Once you are in Eleuthera it seems as if you are in an entirely different place on earth.
You arrive to the warm Caribbean breezes gently caressing you.  You sense and feel the change all around you wrapping you like a warm blanket...  the attitude of the people....warm, friendly & always with a smile.  Life is so much more laid back.  You'll find the people on Eleuthera are friendly and helpful.

Not so long ago, Arvid and I called Eleuthera home.  There we had our own little piece of Paradise in our Lil Red House.  Today the Lil Red House is no longer ours.  It belongs to Kayla and Jake. No one could have been better suited for our home than these two.  They love it just as much as Arvid and I do.

Brutus and I have not been back to Eleuthera in a year whereas Arvid has been back a few times.  Going there now without Brutus, I am full of excitement and looking forward to seeing the island, meeting friends and visiting all of our favorite places.  Most of all I am looking forward to seeing the Lil Red House and the changes it has gone through since the very young new owners took over.
Yes!  We are excited.

What a wonderful time we have always had in our little piece of paradise....the days go by so we are so very attuned to one another.  It is a completely different life than the one we have in Florida.  Nothing wrong with our Florida lifestyle...but somehow here in Eleuthera we seem to have more time for each other, we play more we laugh more we live more!!!

Going back to the island as a "tourist" is new.  Feels good and yet feels strange.  We have been looking forward to this day for a long time and finally is is almost here.  I can't wait to see the crystal blue waters in Eleuthera.

So much I want to see all over again.  For a few days we will be back on island time and island lifestye....

People will always say all sorts of stuff. Let them. I'm enjoying my life..
