My first trip overseas was in a private plane my Dad flew to the Bahamas. I remember looking in awe at the power plant across the water all night. This image was later realized in Jimmy Buffet’s tune Mañana:
Called all my friends on those cheap nightly ratesJimmy Buffet
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 and done some diving several times since on vacation.
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 🌴.
