|This is Dom, the owner of the island|
It's very unfortunate, but Dom passed away on May 8th (just 2.5 weeks after our very enjoyable stay with him). All three of us were very saddened when we received the news.
Dom was an amazing man. So simple and so humble. He had a very generous heart, inviting folks to visit him and enjoy his island. He was so entertaining, with incredible true stories of his life. He was a great cook, making each of our meals a work of art. He told me so many things about the various birds on the island; he knew not only their common names, but their scientific names, as well.
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet him and to stay on his wonderful island!

|You can see Dom has both Julie and I grinning; it's a natural talent of his|
|I think a person could sit and listen to Dom's stories for hours. We sure did.|
|Dom uses a "torch" so we could see what we scooped up in the near dark|
|Dom welcomes more guests as they arrive.|
|Dominc Symes - a great host and a great guy!|
