So you have NO personal vehicles at all other than the carts?
No one takes their car or truck down? What happens for long trips you may want or need to take?

Thanks,

I was just attempting to be as "informed" as possible before making the decision to come for even a visit.

So many things are surprising. I had read that the beef there was raised by Menonite farmers and was quite good. Naturally, I would have assumed there would be milk from the same. Seems strange that there would be livestock without Milk.

Hadn't a clue about Iguanas, cockroaches, and land crabs(?).

I have migrating whales, dolphins who love oranges tossed to them, sea lions, seals, sand pipers,grunion, hawks, sand crabs, and gross Jellyfish that sting.
Occasionally a shark or two . . .

I keep my car here garaged or else the elements would rust it out like down there.

What I miss the most aside from friends family and parties at my cousins house...

Salmon hand rolls
Edamame
Miso
Health food stores
Fruit and vegetable stores
Cheese Shop
China Town
Mr Brown iced coffee
Sitting in the park at the end of the road
Old Navy

(we used to live in Kensington market and a wide range of reasonable priced food shopping available to us)

What I do not miss so much...
snow
24 hour stores
sleeping with 2 duvets in the winter


p.s. we get way better tv for less monthly than we did in Canada.

There are scorpions on the island and large cats and venomous snakes in the jungle. Unless its made from stainless steel, it will have a very short lifespan. We mostly supplement milk for rum or Belikin.
Puts a whole new spin on breakfast cereal.

[quote=sweetjane]escalade? stilettos? Onstar? pannini maker? girl, you actually BEEN to this island? you SURE its for you??? you require cottage cheese??? you do know you can't even get CREAM FOR COFFEE there, right? let alone paying a fortune for cheese of any sort? you do know we have to use powdered, boxed or canned milk, right? you know when you're driving in a golf cart and it starts pouring, you just get soaked, right?

Couldn't have said it better myself Jane! I am just laughing inside!! OK - yeah, right! Maybe an Onstar could be attached to a golfcart! Then again, if you need one, then we are looking at much more serious problems!! No offense Michelle, but SJ has it right! I'd have to say one of the only thngs I would miss is REAL milk...

The things I wouldn't trade:
Waking up to incredible sunrises
Knowing if I had a problem, someone would probably have a Fund raising barbque, blood drive etc. if I really needed their help/
Sitting on my verandah early in the morning and greeting my neighbors while they walk their poochies on the beach.
People with a great sense of humor, who can make lemons into lemonade.
A social circle that encompasses ages from 8 to 80
Never having to explain a "bad hair day".
