GREEN FLASH

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the ‘Green Flash’ that occurs immediately after the sun sets…It is so hard to see because it usually only lasts a fraction of a second and your eyes are already toast from you glaring at the sun anyway.  Well, here are some pictures I took on the Florida Panhandle over Thanksgiving. As a note, the beaches were beautiful.

What’s not to like about a sunset?

And the mysterious Green Flash….

Nantucket…..Tuckernuk Island

Located just off the west end of Nantucket, this island has maintained the charm of old Cape Cod.  We caught fish for dinner several nights and dug up clams for others.  Alex, Kate and her brother Christian and I caught the weather just about perfect.

Early to bed….early to rise and catch this view.

A lone walk followed by footprints in the sand.

You must try my fish cassarole sometime.

Alex can actually cook when he’s not birding…..

…..or cleaning up the beach.

Kate, Christian and Alex stop for a picture while discussing the future of film and the environment.

This girl can dig up a clam faster’n most and lawd her lil brother made us some fried clam fritters!!!!

Gogo arrived and immediately picked over the bones of a seal carcass. Can’t wait to see that jewelry creation.

 

Island Hopping- Harbour Island to Manhattan Island

Allison’s birthday on Harbour Island, Bahamas was a blast with old friends, new friends, good wine, and some amazing sunsets. Harbour Island is a must see or must return to see. Have dinner at the Rock House and the Landing if you want to dine, grab a bite at Angela’s Star Fish anytime, and lunch at the beachside tables of Sip Sip and the Coral Sands. www.briland.com is a source to start your search.

The Ocean View hotel is amazing….no TV’s and frouns when you bring your laptop into the common area. “This is paradise, mon!”

My fishing guide appeared to be on something, but that didn’t stop me from hooking a bonefish. Ms. Lovie Breddux, my fishing companion for the day, enjoyed some lessons casting a spinning rig and laughing about anything.

I caught a near empty flight to NYC to enjoy ‘Young Frankenstein’, which is a great play if you’re looking to laugh a lot, and joined Kip and his brothers on their boat to cruise around, drink wine and eat lobster salad.
