Some people like basketball....some don't.
Some people like apple pie.....some don't.
Some people like Guinness......some don't.
( I'll never understand that.)
Some people like quiet vacations......some don't.
I found this out a few days ago
when a fellow crew member who had just come back from Harbor Island, Bahamas
reported to me that he hated it.
I was blown away
but then I realized some people like basketball....some don't.
I felt bad for about 30 seconds.
He came to me about 2 months ago,
knowing I frequently find an excuse to escape to the Caribbean
and he asked me where I last went.
I told him about Harbor Island.
I then immediately stressed to him that this may be a place
like he has never seen before.
I stressed this is a place you go to
if you want to do basically nothing while on vacation.
Some people like that...some don't.
I stressed to him, this place has no cars, you can't rent one.
If you want to get around to see the Island,
you rent a golf cart.
I stressed to him
if you like pink sand beaches and crystal clear water
you'll love this place.
If not, you'll hate it.
Not a whole lot happening on Harbor Island.
There's more to do on Gilligans Island than there is to do on Harbor Island.
That's what I love about it.
I had a feeling, when I told him about this place
that he would hate it.
He just didn't seem like the laid back dude an Island like this welcomes.
That's why I kept stressing out.
I informed a friend one time that I was heading to the Caribbean.
His response, "why don't you just go to the Jersey Shore?"
I recently just finalized a trip my wife and I are going on, to Panama
to celebrate my 60th birthday.
It's a surprise trip.
A surprise I planned for myself.
Didn't want anyone else to have that pressure.
Isla Colon, a 45 minute puddle-jumper flight off the coast of the main land
will make Harbor Island look like Fantasy Island.
And I'll love every sloooow minute of it.
