    It’s just starting to turn spring down south and fall up north.

    There’s still a bit of time before full-on summer and winter – that transition period where there are good days and bad.

    This link is to a thread written by a fellow is living in the Turks and Caicos Islands and started posting pictures of the life he’s living there.

    It doesn’t hurt that the pictures are gorgeous and the man’s writing ain’t too shabby either. Plan on spending several hours reading the entire thread if your connection is reasonably quick – longer if your connection speed is slower.

    But IMO it’s worth your time to get a glimpse of Gringo’s paradise. I could live like that too. You?

    Enjoy.

    The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence....

    I have been very fortunate in my life, sailed many waters to some truely magnificient sights, but home is where the heart is, learn to enjoy what you have, where it is, and if it is not any good, then move.

    You are dead for a long time, so enjoy life now.

    If it really is your dream to go to such places, do it.
