This past weekend was our Carnival holiday, which means a long weekend taking Monday and Tuesday off! Usually when we get the chance we fly to Margarita Island, a 30 minute flight, where my parents have our family vacation home.
When I was a kid, I vividly remember my grandparents house at the beach where we would all go and spend weekends and a lot of vacation time too. I remember I learned how to ride a bike there, I remember getting all dressed up with mom made customs for carnival, I remember my mom and aunts all gathered around the kitchen preparing dinner, I remember non stop playing with my cousins, and my grandfather burning leaves outside the house. Details, not many, but I do remember those were happy times, I remember closeness that still bonds our families together.
Exactly that is what now this house ¨Miel y Papelon¨ means to us. I don´t know if the girls will remember every vacation spent here, or every game they played, or how they spent hours long swinging in the hammocks or having breakfast at the table were we all fit, and how they became mermaids and dolphins one day after the other. But I am sure that the times we have spent here will forever be embedded in their hearts and minds. And once they grow up, I am sure that this memories will keep them together, because in this house cousins became friends, and aunts and uncles, parents, and grandparents became just one!
This time it was only the five of us, It is a little different when is only us, but time alone only the five of us is pretty cherished too!
what I like most about the house is that once you go in... you are still outside...
and then again... the beach... oh my! is not because is my country, but this is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean.
Without a question life is better by the sea!
