Hurricane Irma

What a dreadful situation in the Caribbean and now in Florida.Our son worked in the British Virgin Islands for a year and we went out to visit him.Beautiful islands and now a scene of devastation.We went to an island called Jost van Dyke.Foxy had a shack and he would sing calypso to you.I lay on the beach in a hammock next to the turquoise with a glass of proper lemonade just listen
Ing to the sea.For a long time afterwards,and still do,if I can't sleep I imagine I am lying in that hammock.I found photos yesterday and the damage is terrible.All the islands and others like Barbuda rely on tourism.What is going to happen now.Because our son worked in Road Town on Tortola we used to mix with the locals in the evening.Lovely,lovely people.
I think,perhaps,if you have been to the place affected it seems more real.I have been really very sad this weekend and it is now hitting Florida .I follow Meredith's blog and keep wondering how she and her family are in Florida.

  2. Thank you for worrying about all of us. You are so sweet to mention me. As you know by now we are all well but I am so sad for those who lost everything. And the fear, hopelessness and anxiety they must be feeling is terrible. It is all so sad.
