Its amazing how much that incredible photography of the house can remove your thoughts of hurricane potential. Ha!! Whatever. As youve noticed my Dad did an unbelievable job of picking out the venue.

This is where we are off to in:

70 days, 9 hrs, 58 mins

http://eskape2stlucia.com/hotels/orchard_villa/

It's actually owned by a Canuck. Very clean as you can imagine.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

I'd like to swim somewhere with clear water, it would make me happy.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Walden Pond is one of my favorite places to swim.  No sharks.  Water is pretty clear and it's hard to beat the location.  I have yet to find any place besides swimming pools in Cali to swim.  The ocean is freezing and populated by treacherous creatures.

Panama City, Florida. Water is unbelievably transparent, sand is like sugar (but not as sweet).

Looking that place up (which is beautiful, btw) I've found these interesting pics: Fog rolls up along the shore of Panama City Beach, Florida.

I came back from this place a month ago: http://www.riobuzios.com.br/beach/?id=en.
The way things are in my country who knows when I'll go on vacation again.  :'(

It's nice here, too.  Baie aux prunes, St. Martin.  The water's warmer, but you need to worry about the occasional shark, etc.

We rent a house on the dells in Wisconsin, nothing that fancy though. It IS beautiful there.

The places are both beautiful, I saw Hatteras Island many years ago while from New york we went down to Florida. No vacation for me  :'(

Hatteras is part of the outerbanks where we are staying. SO beautiful.

Gotta be a neighbor that has a pool somewhere. Thats as clear as it gets.

Come on up Christ!!! Only a 14 hour drive.

The Florida Keys can be nice, too.  I used to go there to stay with my sister.  It was fun to snorkel and look at fish, rays, barracuda, etc.
