      If you are a J1 Visa staff or H2B visa staff and are looking to work at this property I would avoid it at all costs. Although the accommodations for staff are cheap $50 a week you won't have much work. Most departments are only working 2 days a week. March is busier yes but you will spend huge amounts of time sitting around having nothing to do. There is hardly extra employment on the island so can't find extra money. The bosses are lazy and never to much. There is too many managers doing nothing and too many staff with no shifts. Take my advise and go somewhere else. I wish I had.

      ... big round-about in the center of town was all lit up, along with most of the restaurants. Christmas morning found us out on our balcony watching a bunch of little boys march by, dressed as Santa Claus, singing "Happy Birthday Mr. Christmas". There's obviously something lost in translation there as the boys were on their way to the big church down the street run by a Chinese missionary and his family. Unfortunately, our Christmas dinner was one slice of dry ...

      We ate lunch at home then headed to the beach. Sue and I read for most of the time. Rick and Jim explored on their bikes. We both took turns in Jim and Sue's blow up kayak. At the end of the day, rick arrived back on his bike with a small charcoal BBQ in hand - "found on road dead"!! Actually, someone had left it behind because they couldn't get it working and told Rick to take it if he wanted ...

      Again courtesy of CS friends, we are back on Palm Island and what a brilliant island it is.

      It is accessible only be private boat or ferry...and while the ferry ride is only about five minutes, it feels like it is miles away from the mainland.

      We can see why we hear this area called "Old Florida" so often.

      Obviously back in the 30's and 40's before the development, before the big bridges, before paved roads, life ...

      It was cloudy and foggy but our first trip down to the beach was relaxing but cut short when the driver called to deliver Linda's car. We walked on the beach and visited the Lighthouse Museum but the picnic lunch had to be put on hold. We are still amazed that we live near the beach. Next time we will get to stay a little ...

      ... At $4.60 a dozen , I thought "that's me". Well those 12 oysters sloshed with lemon juice, disappeared in a wink, so I ordered another 12.... - 2 dozen raw oysters ALL to myself!!!!! what luxury.
      Ken enjoyed Escargot (snails) . Our food just about on a par with the Rabbit Paella in Spain. Back to Venice for a live show at the Venice theatre.

      Family day out ....Saturday and we had booked 'groupon tickets on line' (half price) for the Babcock wilderness ...
