And that from which its loveliness arises.

Thought for the weekend

Treat the Earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children.

Thought for the weekend


A wild and crazy weekend for me is 

sitting on the beach, reading a good book,

 and sipping a coco loco.






Coco Cay is a tiny island used exclusively by Royal Caribbean Cruiseline and a stop on their weekend cruise to Nassau. 
The floating bar in the picture is a recent edition to the island and super fun to hang out, sip a Coco Loco and chat with fellow cruisers.

Thought for the Weekend


The trouble with gardening is that it does not remain an avocation. 

It becomes an obsession.
