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.
