I’ll admit. I’m a documentary watcher. That doesn’t make me any better than anyone else. I mean I watch the Real Housewives of (any place) and a lot of other low quality programming. Why did they cancel America’s Next Top Model????
But getting back to the point, movie-wise, I’m a documentary type of girl. My favorite documentary is one by Ken Burns about the Statue of Liberty. NERD. Yeah. It tells the story about the statue itself and discusses questions of freedom.
The whole thing is narrated by Jeremy Irons, who has as pleasant a voice as I have ever heard. At one point he discusses how Frederick August Bartholdi chooses what he calls “the admirable spot” for his “American,” Bedlow’s island in New York harbor that had once been home to an insane asylum.
Well, I have my own admirable spot that I revisit every year when I go to the Cayman Islands. It is not in New York harbor and does not feature an insane asylum and I doubt that it perhaps once did. My admirable spot is called Smith Cove that features warm water, fish and a coral reef. I have to admit that the Cayman Islands have spoiled me with the warm water every time in every beach. The views underwater.
Let’s check out the admirable spot:
