hospital recommend living on the ocean.
A couple of people already mentioned living on an island. May I suggest you do some internet research
for American Samoa
? (I'm anchored there now.)
US Territory, US dollar economy, US laws (mostly). Your US passport, and that of your daughter, allows you to immigrate and live here visa-free with no end-date. Corn is mostly unheard about over here. With a little looking around you can get a place on the windward side, and the trade
winds should negate the grass problem. The country is bi-lingual (English/Samoan) but schools and government
facilities operate in English
. Even have a US Post office.
Your a mechanic
? Great! As a boater, I'll flat out state that this place could really use a cruiser-friendly diesel mechanic
, so you'll at least have a sporadic job 'till you get established.
Good luck for both you and your daughter!
