Significant Hotel Room

The previous blog entry (Friday), I posted some pics showing how Silver Sands was totally destroyed by the hurricanes.

Pictured above is the hotel door number plaque from North Building, Suite 101 of the Silver Sands Hotel. I unscrewed the plate off the door of the destroyed building a couple of weeks ago when I was in Freeport on business.

This has significance for me. That room was where I slept for the first time ever in the Bahamas. As a young man, I dreamed of making my way in life, and moving to the tropics.

Well, I am now living in the tropics, for better or worse. Tied up with this plaque are many memories of a time when I was forever young and the world was my oyster.
