East End

Last Friday we drove out to visit friends who live on the east end of the island. It is a a lot different over there.

Quieter and less populated. It is how I imagined this island would be like when I first heard of the place.

People tend to travel by boat more because it is easier to get around. A lot of homes are right on the water.

Seems a lot cooler on that end too, breezier. The majority of people who live out there are originally from the island and all speak English where as here on the west end their is a mix of Islanders, espanolas (Hispanics from the mainland) and gringos (people like me). You hear a lot more spanish around where I live. It is a nice change to go out there and see a glimps of what the island was once like.
