“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”  Jim Rohn

We’re down to our last week on the Island.  It’s amazing to think that we’ve been here two and a half weeks already!  How wonderful it has been to not have an agenda when we get up in the morning.  We have our list of things we wanted to do this trip, and we’ve been ticking them off slowly but surely.  There have been days we’ve been on the go from sunrise till way past sunset.  Other days, we’re just out and about leisurely exploring and discovering and experiencing, as much as we can, what the Island has to offer.  A few times we’ve just stayed “in”, lounging around the pool, soaking in the hot tub, taking naps.  

We’ve been coming here every year since 2005.  Every year we seem to stay a little bit longer.  This year it seemed to take us a good two weeks to really relax and get in to the kicked back attitude of the Islands.  We are working while we’re here as well . . . so it’s not all play and no work.  But how can we complain – telecommuting from a place like this??  Having a good team back home is really enabling us to take this time for ourselves.  Being able to spend this time away together is something many people only dream about doing.  

We’ve turned our dream in to a reality.

This is the view from our Villa. Can you find us in the photo?)

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”  Audrey Hepburn

We hiked a few more beaches today finding a few more spots that we’d never been to before.  Some of the trails are quite steep and slippery as we’ve had more rain the last few days.  We did a little  geo-caching along the way, dropping a couple of trackables that my son sent over with me.  Geo-caching is how we’ve discovered quite a few out-of the way places on the Island that are not traveled by the average tourist.  

It’s a fun activity that can be done all over the world.  I highly recommend it.  It’s a wonderful activity for kids as well.  They love the excitement of “the hunt” and it gets them outside in the fresh air, getting exercise and quality time with Mom and Dad.  It’s a GREAT family activity any time of the year.  

These days all you really need is a cel phone with GPS tracking on it – or for the more serious Geo-Cache’r purchase an actual GPS unit.  We haven’t done that yet – but after this trip when we’ve had a few times without 3G access . . . I’m seriously considering purchasing one.  

Check out Geo-Caching.com for information on cache’s all over the world.  You’ll find many in your area!

“Be miserable.  Or motivate yourself.  Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”  Wayne Dyer

I choose to motivate myself.  There’s no fun in being miserable!  

Today we went hiking down one of the local beaches that we’d not explored before.  We happened upon this awesome tree that obviously has been rooted in this spot for awhile!  I enjoyed crawling though the huge root system to see what I could find.  No surprises . . . so I enjoyed the view of the ocean from the safety and shade of it’s arms.
