The Impossible Dream, the One That’s Maybe Not So Good

Here’s a picture of my husband’s and my impossible dream.  It’s an abandoned beachside hotel/resort on Barbados’ North Point shore.  Our taxi driver Ralph took us out there, and told us that the hotel had been abandoned and for sale for several years.  More like 10 years plus by the look of the crumbling walls of the hotel.  Yet it was one of those “wouldn’t that be cool” moments you have in your life, where you think “what if we bought it and fixed it and lived on this cliffside in the Caribbean the rest of our lives” moments.  But then reality of the money, money, and more money sank in, and we realized that the dream wasn’t maybe so good after all.  But every time I look at these pictures, it brings a certain thrill again.  Maybe this place is calling to one of you!  heehee  🙂  Slainte, LisaNorth Point Hotel, Fixer upper hotel For sale in Barbados for sale at Barbados Property Search

Bridge to Beautiful

DSCN0964

When I’m in the midst of winter, sometimes it feels that it will last forever.  But every year, I’m wrong!  Spring and summer come back, the world warms again, sweaters are gratefully put away, and the warmth floods through my body as a tonic.  So on this cold day when we’re calling for 5-8 inches of snow, I need to remember that.  It’s coming.  There’s a bridge leading to beautiful, it will call my name, and I will walk upon it.  🙂  Blessings, Lisa
