WHAT I LIKE ABOUT YOU…

DEAR ISLAND LIFE…

I’ll tell you what I like about this little place I’ve called home for the past few months…

I like that when I drive around town that I see the my friends and acquaintances in the roundabouts, driving past me and walking by.  We always give a friendly wave.

I like that when I walk into a restaurant, bar, shop, I usually know at least 1 other person if not 20!

I like that my friends come from all places on Earth and they have very interesting stories.  This lends to a broader perspective of life and its ups and downs.

I like that I see my friends so often here and when someone needs something we just call out to the group and more often than not someone can help!

I like that it doesn’t take very long to become an expert tour guide in this town.

I like brunches on Sunday … that last all day!

I like that when my friends from the States come to visit, we walk into a bar, I know said 20 people and my friend says, “What are you, the f*cking Mayor?!”

I like that I go to sleep and wake up with the sound of the waves crashing.

I like that there’s no cold weather.

I like to make fun of the cruise shippers.

I like the sticky toffee pudding at Calypso Grill.

…and the curry cheese fries at Rackam’s

I like skinny dipping in the ocean at night.

I like scuba diving.

I like dinners at friends’ houses.

I like the 3 blonde dogs up the street that hang out in their front yard, and in the road, to allow cars, bikes, and walkers to pass by their paramount post.

I like the roosters… as annoying as they can be at 3 am it’s constant reminder that I’m in the Caribbean.

I like that the direction of the sea changes from day to day and completely baffles me.

I like driving in the Jeep  … even if it starts raining, it’s still warm rain.

I like the starfish

… and the lion fish – they taste good.

I like my secret pier.

I like my fellow runners on W. Bay Road in Seven Mile Beach in the mornings; they are my pals even though we’ve never met.

I like that when I meet someone new I get to play the little game in my head called “guess where that accent is from”.

I like that it’s mostly always sunny and warm and my skin devours it.

And even through the challenges that are presented I still really like my life and my friends here!
