I have only left the Island once to go "home" to Colorado for a brief weekend to go to a wedding. The kids haven't left at all and obviously Hubby has left quiet a few times. We will be here for about another year, maybe more, maybe less. I am hoping to visit one or two of the other islands before we leave.
I still love it here! I'm not getting "cabin fever" as some do. I love the weather, the amazing mountains and of course the beautiful ocean! I only wish it wasn't so expensive to fly here so family could come visit.
This is by far our best duty station yet! Third times the charm!
