Around the Reef

Neatly manicured lawns

SAS & EAS

Buccaneer Island is where I want to be.


Orchids at the farmers market.

I don't think I could ever get sick of eating fresh guacamole.


Croquet court

SAS & EAS

SAS discovered a new drink called The Reef Cup. These cocktails even came with a warning..."They ruin lives".

Ingredients:
1/2 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Gin
1/2 oz. Light Rum
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
Pineapple Juice
Orange Juice
Splash of Grenadine

Pour the vodka, gin, rum and triple sec into a glass with ice. Fill it with equal parts of orange juice and pineapple juice. Add the splash of grenadine.

I am going to miss the sea and sunshine.

Special thanks to Momma K. and Char for being such lovely hostesses...it was wonderful to catch up and hear your laughter! xx

I came sooo close to geting that CKB dress numerous times and now, natch, I really regret not doing so. Also would have been heartbreaking leving the island without at least one of those glorious orchids...XXOO

I drank 4 reef cups, passed out on the bathroom floor of the Burgee Bar, then proceeded to commandeer a golf cart and drive it up and down the Airstrip on the golf course. Eventually, the golf cart died and I fell asleep on the platform at Buccaneer Island. Reef Cups are very dangerous.
