Everyday magic on the Island starts with Sunshine and yoga with Cindy. Opening to the mystery of island living, I always wonder what the day will bring. From hanging on the porch at Beach Bums chilling with the dogs and dudes, to riding the bike with Bianca in the basket breathing in the salt air of the Gulf, to meeting ladies on a beach walk collecting seashells who have a place for us to stay, to conversations with friends who now live in the area, to swimming in the kidney shaped pool under the palm trees at the garden motel next door, to the newlywed couple who adore Bianca, to impromptu afternoon beers and BBQ on the tip of the island watching the sunset with new friends, to sharing stories of love and dreams inspiring over cocktails and mussels at the waterfront, life unfolds naturally and organically and authentically. Breathing in gratitude gratitude gratitude. I will be back in NYC soon. For now, it’s another day in the life of a mermaid and I am biking my way to yoga on the beach with a friend from NYC who is here for the weekend. Bliss bliss bliss.
