Had a surprise long weekend at the island last weekend. We were headed up last Friday morning to catch the 12:30 ferry. Our intent was to vacuum, dust and make the beds and check in a renter who was coming on the 7:00 ferry and then catch the "red-eye" 10:45PM off the island. Just north of Gaylord I got a call from the renter, he cancelled due to a family emergency. I was bummed to lose the rental Sad , but that meant we got to spend a long weekend at our place. Smile When we got off the ferry we went to Hawk's and got some lunch and I picked up a signed copy of Charlies book "Island Nights". It was a great read, I finished it Saturday night just before the 11:00 news. I can't wait to read it to Kate when she's older. I will, however, leave out chapter five "The Make Out Party". Shocked . Those of you who've read the book know what I'm talking about. Wink By the way, you can buy the book cheaper at Hawk's than you can at Amazon and I'm sure Jeff & Sheila would appreciate the business.

Looking forward to the next trip to BBI and the next book "The Islander".
