from way up there i could see for miles. the horizon curved. (nothing flat there) the view was fine. island paradises are sweet spots for a quick visit. why do i always want to go home about two weeks after arriving? beautiful ocean blue green and cloudy skies. gorgeous place with stories everywhere... tropical rain keeps things green pirates died of thirst across the way. fifteen men on a dead man's chest. it was over there, on that beach. and then the wind blew up, furious! we had to go.
