First Visit

Feels like a lifetime ago.

While his mother tended to the vegetable garden, the sweet baby waited patiently.

I often wonder how theyโ€™re all doing.

The King.

Party day at the island.

๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

Not the biggest waterfall, not by a long shot, but it feels great after the hike to get there. Another thing we miss from the island.

Rainy day at home, what is one supposed to do ? Reminisce.

It rains a lot in Prรญncipe as well, but somehow rain doesnโ€™t feel the same over there.

๐ŸŒด ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

Out fishing…

Follow up to the umbrella post, hereโ€™s another in in use during actual rain. Nature being cool and humans, sometimes, cool as well.

VSCO now has a Kodachrome inspired filter, KC25. Free for a while, then part of the X subscription.

The airport in Prรญncipe is the smallest one I’ve been to. A daily flight from STP, weather permitting, is the main link to the world. People come to see who’s leaving or arriving, drop and pick up packages, and gossip. From time to time a larger plane lands. Party time.

Just have to remember to always keep smiling…

Missing the open road.

Another one of the When Friends Come to Visit… This is my favorite beach in the world. They always like it too.

The dream house.

๐Ÿก ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

The bride and the bridesmaids, just before movieStar and I were married. Best time of my life.

๐Ÿ’– ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

A cozy corner of the island, there are dozens of these…

๐ŸŒด ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

The lonely fisherman.

๐Ÿ  ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

Another friend from the island, and one of the most amazing experiences Iโ€™ve had in my life.

๐Ÿข๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

The backyard view. Jockeyโ€™s Cap in the distance.

๐ŸŒด ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

When friends come to visit us at the island…

๐Ÿ’– ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡น

Very long story short, this is where movieStar and I met, where I proposed, where we got married and where I first seriously considered becoming a parent. Lovely Raquel played a big part in all of those.

Welcome to Prรญncipe.
