There are so many treasures to be found on the Isla. Sometimes weeks go by without a find but the other day I picked up three sand dollars.

I love this new find.

These treasures are going back to Canada, just bringing home a wee bit of Mexico.

I love the colors on this plate.

Just found this mango tree here on the Isla, sadly we won't be here to get a taste of the fruit.

I had to throw this treasure out the other day as it developed a hairline crack. I bought this in Maui in 1987 on our honeymoon. Colin's similar mug only lasted about 10 years. Sad to have to part with this mug.

Even sadder is saying goodbye to Mary and my weekly 90 minute massage. She is such a treasure. See you in November.

A gift from my garden. I received three of these treasures. What a wonderful parting gift.

Happy Birthday to our wee treasure, Caeli, who turns nine today.

  1. All kinds of wonderful treasures, you will miss the Isla pretty soon.

      George….yes we will miss the Isla but we do have a lovely new home to get back to.

      Croft….well actually I sold some of the wine to folks staying on for a few more months and have quite a bit onboard to get us thru the next three weeks.

      Peter….yup even if I have to resell it. Nice to have had enough here to share with friends.

    It is a good thing you managed to get rid of the wine so you have room to take treasures home! 😉

    Us Canucks always seem to be able to get rid of wine… Nice treasures, and happy birthday Caeli.
