Caribbean Queen, Billy Ocean, 1984

We enjoyed life in Vermont.  I also had the luxury of spending lots of time in Beachville during the summers.
 
I had sharpened my metal smithing and design skills and was spending  my summers selling my handmade jewelry at East Coast art shows.  We had added an efficiency apartment to the garage on our Beachville property and I used this as a home base for my shows.  An added plus was my best friend now renting our house.
 
I would drive down from Vermont and spend several weeks working in Maryland and then return home.  Fred would occasionally take the train down to meet me and spend some vacation days soaking up the sun.
 
During one of our vacations between art shows, we flew out of BWI with the sole intent of purchasing our dream home on Vieques Island, a place we'd never been before.  Are you crazy?
