Day One

Hello Burlington! We have safely arrived on the incredible island of South Andros. We were welcomed by 80 degree weather, bright sun, and many friendly locals. The home of the Leopold's is as serene as paradise!

Most of the day was spent recuperating from the long morning of traveling. We went for our first swim as soon as we arrived (the house is directly on the beach), and later we had our first samplings of native food.We had conch fritters, hog snapper, and peas and rice. Jesse Leopold's friend and partner, Rogey, who has lived on South Andros all his life, joined us for dinner and answered all of our questions about the island.

We are all ecstatic to be here and looking forward to our busy week. We have big plans for tomorrow and need to get our rest.

Awesome! It's great that you made it well and safe. Thank you for sharing. We are still in deep winter cold in Vermont with another winter storm coming Wednesday. Reading your blog gives us some warmth from the tropics. Keep us posted!
