PARADISE IS EVERYWHERE

Joanne,
My favourite image is of the little girl snoozing on the boat...and of course the lovely, lazy summer atmosphere to the music.
Happy memories to a swing beat!

Robert

The trip looks absolutely lovely. I was never able to take trips like this with my family, so I shall live vicariously through your experiences!

Robertkc pretty much said what I was going to say! <3

Hi Joanne,

That was so nice! Love the casual music and it was perfect for the video. This was a real treat - watched and listened twice! I was going to mention my favorite places in the video, but that would have been about three minutes worth.

I really loved it! I've traveled a lot - over 40 countries - but never got to Mauritius. In fact. I've never been anywhere in the Indian Ocean - flown over it several times, though!

That was so relaxing and your vocal was captivating. Thanks for the smile ion my face!

Alan

Joanne and Karen,

This has some similarity with the ukulele version of Over the Rainbow.
It sounds different from your usual work, but very nice.The video is lovely.

Thanks for the nice comments and for viewing the video. It was so much fun going through all this old footage to select some for this track.
Al-David, Mauritius is really a place to visit if you can get there. Paradise smile
