Ever dream you were floating on a cloud?
How about finding shapes and pictures in the clouds and then creating stories about those cloud shapes?
Besides chasing Captain Jack and eating Mallow Cups, a favorite pastime on the island is to lay on a hammock and cloud watch.
Hope your weekend is filled with plenty of cloud gazing time.
This just in!
