That’s it. I’m not leaving.
New goal in life: Win the lottery. Buy a house on the beach. Buy another house in the mountains. Give the rest to charity. Done.
We lucked out with another beautiful day on the island. For as much trouble as the weather caused us getting onto the island, it really hasn’t been a bother since we stepped foot on the sand. Funny how that happens.
My brother and sister-in-law had the 1:30pm boat off the island today, so we chilled around the house all morning (I spent that time reading in the hammock) before sending them off.
After we said our goodbyes, I heated some leftovers for lunch.
Then we headed to the beach to soak up the sun.
I think Maddie is really going to miss this place. I took her on a mile or so walk down the beach and she had a ball jumping over all of the fallen trees and driftwood. She is one heck of a jumper.
When we returned to the beach house I snacked on some of my dad’s homemade trail mix (peanuts, sunflower seeds, raisins, and m&ms).
Maddie recovered from her walk.
Tonight’s dinner was a clean-out-the-fridge meal. We still had a ton of chicken left, so I marinaded a few breasts in the rest of the greek dressing and my dad grilled it.
The chicken was added to a bed of greens with some feta and turned into chicken breast salads.
On the side, I sauteed the last batch of asparagus with onion, garlic, mushroom, and lemon juice.
After dinner we took one last trip to the beach for some sunset fishing.
For the first time all week, we couldn’t stop catching fish. Seriously. Every time we would cast out we would catch another and another and another. Why weren’t we fishing from this spot all week?!
There’s nothing like a summer sunset.
Once the sun was set, we packed up and headed back. The rest of my mom’s cookie/brownie creation was waiting at home.
I 100% recommend this dish. Just be warned – it’s addicting.
Can’t. Stop. At. One. Piece.
We have less than 12 hours left on this island… I better make the most of it.
