Wishes vs. Reality :: Necker Island

I wish that I could stumble back to bloglandia with an apology for being
noticeably absent because I was kidnapped and swept away to a remote
private island . . . where I was forced to spend my days in a dreamy hammock
overlooking a shimmering pool, overlooking a shimmering ocean .... . .
whilst being served endless margaritas by an ever attentive staff -

and frolicking in that shimmering pool until it was time for my daily massage
in a small pavilion on the beach.
Alas, it's a lovely dream ... . . but, not a reality.
Best to say - Real Life swept in and took over Blog Life.
No posts, no visits to catch up with each of you .

Stanford and I haven't forgotten about you or our promise to
continue his travels to your mailboxes . His journey has simply
been a bit delayed.

Hugs to all of you who left thoughtful notes -
I hope your weekend will be .. . . dreamy.

Some of you may recognize these photos of
Sir Richard Branson's Necker Island,
in the British Virgin Islands.

Haven't been there ? You simply must put it on
your travel list of places to swim/lounge/play before you die.
I love the fact that it has a main house and additional
small beach side cottages.
Bring a few friends and
everyone gets a bit of privacy.

My travel list just got longer. I'm sorry to hear that you weren't hanging out here. O.K., this is on the list right after Biarritz.

No need to apologize for your absence Judith. Real life should take priority! Hope all is well.

To lounge around on Necker Island is just what I need this summer...or any summer (winter, spring, or fall!).

Thinking of you,

sigh. Unfortunately, I wasn't swept off to Necker Island either. LOL

Terrific - and inviting! - photos.
