My first trip overseas was in a private plane my Dad flew to the Bahamas. I remember looking at the power plant across the water all night in awe. This image was later realized in Jimmy Buffet’s tune Manana:
Called all my friends on those cheap nightly rates
Sure was good to talk to the old United States
While the lights of St. Thomas lie twenty miles west
I see General Electric’s still doing their best.
Funny the things I remember. Anyway, I have visited several times since on vacation and do some diving.
I have been to Jamaica, the Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Turks and Caicos, Bonaire, Honduras, Belize, Nevis, and Mexico. The romantic lure of the islands still has me in its grips 🌴.
