    What she said!
    Parts of that book made me want to throw it across the room. Norman the clueless one!

    We always say the island would be great without the islanders. Allison is right about the island mentality.

    I see that the OP has not checked in since the day (Feb. 27) she opened the thread. Is it just me, or does anyone else find this annoying?

    We can only assume she made the move to an island with no wi-fi

    But seriously, yes, it is a little annoying. If people take the time to respond, you should take the time to read, give feedback, and thank. Oh well, to each their own.

    Would never do it...after my last dive trip, and dealing with the locals, they can all stay and rot on their island.

    I read a post sometime ago about a scubaboard person who had moved to Roatan and found their house was too desirable to a local and they came out on the wrong end of the debate. Said that the legal system left them no recourse. Makes the USVI sound pretty good. And I love Roatan. I've been there 7 times. I thought about buying a condo at one time.

    Sounds a little like my home island... but your gas is much cheaper. Ours is $6.50/gal.
