    SO, I didn't see a woodstove in that shack....what gives?? ;):p

    I love trips to the beach (ain't never been to the tropics yet), but after a couple weeks I'm THOROUGHLY ready to come home. I love the mountains, the change of seasons, and my extended family. I wouldn't fair well down in that shack for too long.....

    My kids love the beach as do I (uncrowded). I also love diving,snorkeling,sailing,fishing,jet skiing and fires on the beach at night with plenty of cold beer and catching my dinner of lobster,crabs,clam,s fresh from clear,clean waters. Its always a hoot to do this in january and febuary when my friends are shoveling snow and chopping ice back home. We will be putting the kids in cyber school to facilitate winter travel.

    I get my fire fix by building fires on the beach at night. For Cooking with a few friends and family and a couple cold ones.
    Most of the beaches iv been to here in the states dont allow fires and you certainly cant rent a beach house for those kind of prices. $600 for a 1 month stay.Includes electric ,water and a weekly cleaning lady .

    You can buy a whole pig roasted over charcoal for about $50-60 delivered like a pizza still hot and steaming. Although not in 30 minutes. sometimes it 24 hours as it takes about 6 hours to roast. Local fisherman sell their catch every morning, and fresh fruits and veg are available year round

    Symptoms include the driving urge to play with one's own wood........I hope you don't go blind, Seasoned Oak!!;)

    Probably not on this particular small island. When we stay in the city our favorite hotel suite has high speed Internet. Included. We need that for online banking and the kids cyber school and to keep in touch with family. If you need a dose of home you can order online from Mcdonalds,pizza hut, KFC ect. And have it delivered to your room.Neat.

    There are other ways to stay warm in winter, but hearth.com rules won't let me post pics of them.

    A dirty kitchen is an outside mini kitchen,Think patio sink/countertop to prepare fish and meat for charcoal grill cooking.
    Keeps the mess out of the house.Nice idea. The interior kitchen is reserved for cold beer

    I don't like that water. Fish poo in that water. Plus,...
    If I can't wear insulated Carhartts in Feb., I'm not in the right place.
    It is beautiful though.
