Postcard Of The Week: Island Time


It’s absolutely freezing here in the Northeast United States. We had some good weather for a while, but winter came back last night with a vengeance. Now all I can think of is when I’ll be able to go outside in my flip flops again!

Speaking of, this place looks awfully like the one I’ll be visiting very soon…  can anyone guess where this is?  🙂
