Well, another interesting visit. The sun is shining though!!!! Let me tell you the cheapest one bedroom cottage is only $1 million. I just don't even get it...the excess is unbelievable...I walked into one store picked up a small purse that was so cute, but I'm talking small and it was only $480, so I commented it was very cute and placed it back in its spot.

The island is very quaint and pretty. I like the cottages, but not a million dollars worth. Seriously, it is pretty, lots of fishing boats, lots of very cute stores, and lots of very big homes. Only 10,000 people live here year around and in the summer it is around 50,000. Most people that work here commute from the mainland.

We had lunch at a neat little outdoor restaurant and enjoyed the sunshine. We walked and shopped in the little tourist shops and caught our tender back to the boat. The view outside my window is of the little lighthouse that is right out the window. I love the lighthouses and the reminder of the light in this world...God is here.

I have to share a quote I just read "As we grow in our trust of God's presence, we become more willing to live our lives in the shape of huge question mark." Listen I love this...We begin to learn to trust God and and instead of telling God what we want from Him, we ask Him what He wants us to do. We try to align ourselves with God's rather than convincing God what we want is a good idea. I love this!!!

I am reading a lot and loving it! I'll share more later....

Many blessings,

I feel as though I am getting a glimpse of these tourist areas through your eyes, Debbie. Thanks for sharing and I love the quote.

I'm heading off to Bible Study. We will miss you.
