The first time we visited Long Island，Bahamas, was in 19S5. We and our two young sons had a wonderful time vacationing for a week at the Stella Maris Resort Club, owned and managed by two German families. Each day we rode on a truck to delightful beaches and coral reefs (珊瑚礁）along the shoreline，where the boys easily took to snorkeling (使用水下呼吸管 潜泳）. The truck reappeared at a set time to take us back to our two-bedroom cottage. We were also introduced to taste local food
In July 2015，30 years later，we returned to Stella Maris with our grown sons and their families for nine nights，hoping to have a similar experience.
The taste of the resort (度假村）remained relatively unchanged What a surprise! The resort was managed by the next generation of the German families. The island remained unspoiled ^ friendly, unhurried, historically interesting and beautiful. Long Island also continued to be safe~there were still no keys or locks for the accommodations. We had a cottage with four large bedrooms that accommodated the 10 of us well. The food included traditional barbecue chicken，peas and rice，in addition to their cheese and green salad.
The only disappointment was that there was too much churn (翻腾）in the water for snorkeling. Additionally，the coral reefs suffered from tropical storms and hurricanes.
The obvious success of our holiday was cemented by a comment from one of my grand-daughters： “This is the most beautiful place I've ever seen.
The greatest gift was having our family together, playing, having lots of fun and knowing that indeed experiences can be relived and shared.
