Warm Island Breezes and Rum Cocktails

Rum and BeachEach spring, those of us in the Northwest are teased in to believing summer is here. Temps rocket into the 80’s, sun filled skies warm our bones and gentle breezes have us putting on shorts, sun dresses and dragging the outdoor furniture out of the garden shed. Within two sunrises, skies are gray, rain will fall for days and temps will plummet in to the upper fifty’s. We never learn. We fall for it every time.

This is the time of year I dream of the tropics with warm island breezes, light blue seas, hot sand and and rum. A lot of rum.
