Nature Abounds on the Island

A few little seasonal pleasures associated with island life:

-- bright green tree frogs hiding out behind the shampoo bottle in my outdoor shower,

-- six inch long lizards scurrying along the roof or up the side of the building; one early this morning puffing out his bright red throat, to impress the ladies I'm guessing,

-- turtle tracks tracing an uneven line across the sand on my walk across the dunes,

-- graceful dolphin fins cutting through the water close enough to shore that it wouldn't be very difficult to swim out to them.

  1. Very lovely, and poetic. Could it be that you, Mr. Howard, are a born storyteller?
