Marie is a real plant nut.


I married a real plant nut. When I first met her and went to the apartment she shared with her sister, Ruth, plants were everywhere…on all the window sills, tables…refrigerator…you name it…if it would hold  plants …they were there.

So when we had Sandcastle, plants and flowers were her thing. She particularly liked hibiscus plants. Now, with that background, you can see why she made this greeting.



George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
