During the few moments I had toward the end of our visit, I tried to capture some of the flowers of the Island. I couldn't identify the red/orange ones -- but they had such distinct YELLOW ANTERS that folded over the flowers like a cross -- very very neat! I'd look down on the flowering shrub and see all these 'x's' -- quite a sight! Oleander blooming and bougainvillia ... and so many of our (NC) typical houseplants used throughout the outdoors ... lovely to see!
One of the many gifts of this trip was an hour-long Swedish massage! Oh my gracious!! Both M and I took turns watching T while we relaxed during this incredible treatment!
Eye candy, physical relaxation, music, food, family, warmth -- the trip (and being with my beloved family) couldn't have been more special.
I came home with prayers of gratitude on my lips and on my heart ....for the trip, for my family, for the many gifts of this time ....
