I love you.
I love your beauty, your wildness, your sense of adventure and your people. I love that I don't have to be anyone but myself here. You don't care what kind of car I drive, what kind of shoes I wear, or whether my hair is in a ponytail. Because of you I stopped trying to hide behind makeup and found contentment with how I really look.
Holi Festival, Bugges Beach
You have shown my children so many amazing things that they might never have seen. The beauty of this place is awe-inspiring, but equally awesome is the sense of community. There are so many events, classes, clubs and things-to-do that one can only be bored if they choose to be.

99 Nails Earthday Beach Clean Up, Bugges Beach
You have spoiled me for all others. I learned from you that I should bask in the beauty of nature every single day. I learned from you that when there is nothing to do your trees, rocks and sea provide all the fun we could need.

I will never forget you, even if I never see you again...though I hope that isn't the case. My heart is always yours.
