Hello, I'm Henry.  

Welcome aboard my blog's home. 

If you come along with me, you'll become acquainted with my motley mates and faithful crew:

Experiences, Sightings, Observations, Impressions, Ideas, Reflections, Remembrances, Insights and Commentary.

They, after all, have accompanied me for as long as I can recall. Their tenure has helped me turn my tiller, fill my sails, and transport me over seas to distant lands. Maybe if you take the time to get to know them, a few will do the same for you.

I didn't feel the impulse to explore as much as possible so I stayed in one place for eight days. I felt an affinity for this spot, like it spoke to me "Stay with me, keep me company. Get to know me some."

So I did; this tranquility worked for me

Again like last summer I lost track of the days because they don't matter out here. I wasn't playing hooky or loafing; I was again visiting my dear, dear friend Flow.  She never ceases to amaze me. I wasn't doing time; I was being timeless.

Here's what she had in store for me at my ringside seat this time:

  • A sweet little one-house island
  • A sandbar beach appears at low tide
  • At high tide the beach appears as a wild rapids
  • Enough protection from most wind directions (except west and north)
  • enough depth to be safe at tidal changes
  • divine weather - 75-89 degrees - mostly sunny days  
  • wind mostly easterlies 10-17 knots
  • always comfortable in bathing trunks or speedo.
  • No flies, bugs or bites! No sleepless swatting nights!
  • A 25 foot cut between two coral heads where the tide rips through day and night
  • Privacy + quiet - not one Nassau siren, horn, powerboat wave, tour boat or jet ski
  • Ho-hum average sunrises and sunsets
