Island Contraband


I had worked hard to keep the packing to a compact minimum--we have to lug everything down a dock, across the water, over the beach, and up a steep hill. Imagine my surprise when "Flip and Flop" made their appearance on Lou's feet!

Lou had quite a few other things tucked away in her bag. Seven stuffies (at least they were small) two extra books, a travel clock, and her meditation balls. It reminded me of this funny collection found when packing for Florida last April.


Lou's favorite part of the island may have been her bunk. She settled right in with all her island contraband and had a very snuggly time. I think there's something special about having just a few of your most favorite things with you. Really, less is more!

That's so cute. :) She's made a little place of her own there on the island.

Lou is just adorable! She reminds me so much of my own 10 year old daughter. Your time at the island sounds heavenly, thank you for sharing, it gave me a bit of a vacation as well.
