Sounds like you had a great trip. Banana Beach is cool isn't it?
As for the people on Ac your post reminds me a bit of something that happened on my first trip. I took a golf cart into town and at a cross road wasn't exactly sure which road to take (subsequently found out it didn't matter); ), I asked a girl on a house porch...next thing I knew she was getting in the golf cart with me cuz she had to go to town anyway. Freaked me out at first, but I soon discovered this was the AC way. Many times I've been caught in the rain walking back from town and people have always stopped in their carts to ask if they can give me a ride. Something you just don't see here at home much.
