In Dreams

Three or four times a year I visit the Forbes.com website. They usually have some marvelous lists on their site. Today was no exception.

I just had to check out the 14 Most Expensive Private Islands.
I’ve always wanted my own Private Island.

Especially after watching the movie “South Pacific”; this would become my ultimate daydream. "Here am I, your special island, Come to me, Come to me."

As a teen I aspired to become wealthy enough to make my dream come true. But as life goes on, things got in my way. At first it was my four years in the US Army Security Agency. Then it was followed by my marriage and the birth of my children.
Throughout all of this time the dream of my “special island” stayed with me. I’ve always wanted to live on an Island, as it was my childhood dream.

In the late 1970’s, I was still daydreaming about living on some Island. But, by this time the island had move from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea. I had even designed a hexagonal dwelling to be built on my dream island. I still have the original drawings. I gave up looking at them 15 years ago.

Today I found the perfect Island. It is called Leaf Cay 2 and is located in the Exuma chain of islands in the lower Bahamas, not far from Staniel Cay where they did a lot of the underwater scenes for the James Bond movie Thunderball. The island has several dwellings as well as a 1,500 ft. airstrip, underground wiring and desalination facility.

Forbes lists it at $19,000,000 but the agent says that the asking price has been reduced to a mere $17,800,000. This is a real bargain.
Now if I can only get 25,000,000 people to send me just $1, I would be able to buy and die on this Island in Paradise.

This will be my new hopeless project.
