Paradise Lost

Dream Seeker must sail from this quiet shallow port on high tide! This morning it is 10 AM and we must go. Denny is in his element.

Fresh water is difficult to come by on these islands and Kamalame cay is no exception. It provided fresh water in small doses.  West End has reverse osmosis plants so water was plentiful there. 

The family is going their separate ways. Two on the  the seaplane, some on the the ferry to the airport, three of us on Dream Seeker, Clare, one of my six beautiful granddaughter’s is sharing our journey home. Although exhausted from ten days of revelry I am delighted to have her on board.

The celebration is over but will never be forgotten! The resort was amazing and the people so very happy to have us. Walking, running, bicycles and golf carts were the major forms  transportation on this three mile long island. But I still drank too much and didn’t get enough exercise. 

Ah, the good life!

  5. What a great trip we had!! I can not believe it is over. So many memories; bungalows on the ocean, family dinners, fishing-grandma feeding the entire family with her catch, fireworks, trivia, kayaking, small planes, the Monkey Bar, golf carts, Mt. Kamalame, Batik factory, and lots of conversation and family time. Hope you are enjoying your ocean crossing with Clare.
