Lubbers Quarters, our home in Abaco

Welcome to my blog. My name is Sam Hoffer.

My husband Meakin and I followed a dream and retired to the out islands of the northern Bahamas and lived there year-around for ten years on a tiny private cay (cays are smaller than islands) in the Abacos called Lubbers Quarters. Our home was Lazy Days and we also had a vacation rental Sandy Bottoms. See picture.
I wrote a food column for The Abaconian newspaper, "From the Kitchen of Lazy Days," while we lived there. It was a very special time in our lives and one we won't forget.

I am in the process of writing a lively memoir, Living on Island Time, Retirement in Abaco Spiced with Food, Friends and Rum. The book is a travel adventure filled with zany characters, funny stories, jokes, and all of the wonderful friends we made. It includes building a home, boating and fishing tales, gardening, entertaining, food and recipes, as well as all of the trouble we managed to get into. Life isn’t always perfect in paradise.

I look forward to your comments and input. Welcome to Island Time in Abaco.
