A missive from the Virgin Islands

 I think this time the pictures carry the story.
 pelicans fishing – what a sight!
What a prehistoric thing, the iguana.
my tent cabin at Maho Bay.
 The calabash
 an arboreal termite mound
 the ruins of a slave-run sugar mill
Those little white spots on the point, one of them was my tent cabin.
 The water was so warm and welcoming.
This was no easier to understand or explain in real life than it is in the photo.  Apparently a tree on one side of the little drainage fell down, onto another of the same type on the other side.  The rest, apparently is history.
