Henry Wallace and son
Current temp: 73 Wind N10
Audrey and I took a trip to the north end of the island the other day. We were on a mission to find water melons, grapefruit, tangerines and any kind of produce and veggies we could get our hands on. I will have to say we made a pretty good haul.
I figured as long as we were in the area we would take a little side trip to Red Bays and see if some of my old friends were around. Went to see master carver Henry Wallace as I ordered another sculpture from him. Last year I had the pipe man and this time it should be even better. Can’t say what it is yet. You can see some of his work in the pic. That bonefish is carved out of mahogany and can be yours for $450.
As we were leaving the settlement I heard a guy yelling and it was my friend Carlton. It was good to see him and he said he just got another boat and was heading back to sea to make his living. He and Gerald both lost their boats last year in what they called “a perfect storm”. It was these two guys who told me where to camp on the west side and gave me the directions to the only source of fresh water over there. It only took me two years to find it and numerous maps from these guys who probably thought I was an idiot but never gave up on me.
All in all it was a fun trip.
