The Island seems to have its own seasons which are marked by the coming and going of the visitors instead of changes in the weather.
This is particularly noticeable as we say goodbye daily to a few more of our Winter Texan friends as they pack up to leave their temporary home at the La Quinta. But as they go, more young couples and young families have been arriving. It is actually the lull before the Spring Break storm.
The restaurants have seats available, the lobby is empty of card and game players, and the locals seem to be taking a moment to prepare for the onslaught that is set to begin next weekend.
For me, it is just a reminder of how little time I have left to accomplish all I want to finish during this time on the island.
