Living on an island can be pretty cool, but it also has some unusual daily living quirks. Take for instance, just this particular list of 10:
1. We have boat crossings. Yep, that's right. We wait for boats to cross from the waterside to the boat sheds across the main street. A lot.
2. But this is what we see while in the traffic tie-up.
3. We have to sometimes wait for the wild turkeys to finish their banking duties at the local drive-thru window.
5. We have to plan for trips to America - no "I think I want to go to Wal-mart right now!"
6. But we can have special deliveries from small retail businesses - I once had a book delivered through my car window as I drove by because of no parking spots. Talk about a sweet drive-by. :)
7. At the height of the season, we might have to wait at our favorite restaurants to eat.
8. But look at the view when we finally get there.
9. We get sidetracked by who's for or against the new roundabout at the only blinker light on the island, or how it came to be that summer help could have "pot" mailed to a harbormaster's shack and not get caught till the end of summer, or even how we as an island are going to make it through the winter, economically. But we really do like each other. See?
