Thursday - the sad forgotten sister of Friday. No one ever yells "Thank God it's Thursday". No one ever counts down the last few hours until after work drinks or the freedom of the weekend. Thursday is a plod-along day, a "let's get it over so we can go to sleep and yell TGIF the next morning" sort of day. So here is my Thursday gift to you, a virtual escape to brighten up the stolid workaday. Tamarind Beach at Paradise Cove, a compound of three houses (for vacation rental) in the tropical paradise of Vanuatu. A sophisticated taste of island life steps from crystal blue waters and coral reefs. This is one virtual getaway I wish I could make in real life.
