Fascinating stories of life on the Island. It was an ideal place for kids to grow up. My wife and I did not have any children while we were there - that came later, but my god-daughter (who is now 35, which make me feel really old!) and her brother had a fantastic time exploring the island and swimming in the pool, it was a great place.
It's a shame about your photos not being available, hope that some of the images on Flickr site have brought back some other memories of your time there. If you do come across any pictures we can then organise to get them linked to the Flickr site.
