Great photos. Looks very appealing. Do you have any shots from when you were there? Are you still there?

I'm kind of partial to Nevis. We visited the island several times while cruising up and down the Lesser Antilles and fell in love with it. So much so, that we sold our home in the States and moved here! Friendliest people in the eastern Caribbean!

I was there 25 years ago.....it was really nice
there was a beach there with Black sand, I remeber the LAVA wine they sold there.......I cant remember if it was any good, but it gave you a head ache the next morning

anyways there was an island across from Santroni,
it had only a few people that lived on it,
they had just got electricity when I was there, I cant remember the name

Hi, Ram.

Food's more expensive here, as all but some of the fresh produce is imported. But we've found that our annual "cost of living" has dropped maybe 40% overall. That could be because there're no shopping malls here! The simple life is a good life!

Manta Ray Bay ( A picture is worth a thousand words )

G'day guys

This photo was taken a few weeks ago on the way down the Australian East Coast. It is of my 2 real loves at Manta Ray Bay Hook Island in the beautiful Whitsundays. It has some of the best snorkling in the world.

Exumas, Conception Island, Rum Cay. Hard to pick which is more beautiful or, for that matter, which is which.
