Eleuthera, Bahamas.......Escape from the Ordinary

You know your life's great, when you don't envy others :)

All I can hear right now is the sound of the waves and nothing else....pretty soothing and calming first thing in the morning.  Combined with the gorgeous sunrise = paradise and it's ours for a few days.

Did our usual walk and today we got caught in a little bit of rain.  I love the feel of the raindrops on my face ...Arvid on the other hand not so fond of it.  He found a telephone booth and hid out there for a bit so as to not get wet and telling me to hurry up...
On this trip we came across many pretty flowers..

We also ran into 3 little boys just laughing and having a good time.  I asked them what they were doing and they told me they were looking for their dog.  They were just too cute so I asked it if was OK to take their picture and the boys said yes ma'am.  It's very refreshing to encounter such politeness in youth these days.  Everyone here is so very polite and respectful it reminds me of when I was a little girl... 

We cruised along for a bit on Shore Drive. Met some of the neighbors and chatted along for a bit....something we almost never have time to do when back home in Florida.

We also walked over to the marina.  I love to look into the crystal clear waters to see if I spot a fish or 2.  There were also a few boats....Arvid loves to look at the boats.  We once had a boat or two but hopefully no going in a boat don't care for the cleaning that comes afterwards...Our last boat he traded for stamps which in turn he used to trade for a condo in Montana.  Never a dull moment in our lives:)

Once we got back to the place where we're staying, we decided to just cool off and relax on the deck....enough activity for one day...we are in the islands after all.  Here life is laid back and one just does a tiny bit everyday and then relaxes some more....really getting into the swing of relaxing it takes practice.  Arvid has perfected it.  I'm still working on it.

Life is good.  We are enjoying it and having fun at the same time.  Time for a cool drink.

Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed...
