I think we relax so easily, due to the quiet surroundings, peaceful sounds of the waves, and the lack of clutter around us. Not to mention lack of kids sniveling and arguing, and lack of electronics and noise pollution.
This little strip of shops is basically downtown. The island is only about 4.6 square miles.
Our favorite coffee on the island. Mmmmm! The owner bakes all the baked items herself.
Our secluded retreat. No people, no traffic, no nothing. Just a few birds, waves and a few boats in sight.
It was island-wide garage sale day, so we decided to drive around and see what people had. We were delighted to find an antique, round butter dish for only $2.00! What a deal. This works perfectly for the hormone free butter we buy.
The garage sale day allowed us to drive down private lanes and drives that normally are off limits to tourists. We saw some very nice homes by the water's edge (and very expensive also).
We also found this green melmac bowl for $.25 and a set of blue rose plates (also melmac) for only $.75. These will go in our wall tent or trailer/camper in the near future.
An islander shared with us, another special treat to try on our next visit.
This week? Back to deep cleaning I'm afraid. However, when it's all done, it will be so nice and refreshing. We may even be wood splitting this week.
