Castaway Island

This is where Tom Hanks shot the movie 'Castaway'.  I can just see it now.....Tom trying his hardest to split open a coconut, or spear a fish to keep from starving to death, and talking to a volleyball because he was so lonely......... then, "cut, it's a wrap", (or whatever movie people say when they've finished a scene).  He then strolls a few yards down the beach to relax at this resort where he probably had lobster and an exotic cocktail for dinner.  And I bet he was enjoying his meal in the company of someone he did not call Wilson!  (Actually I have no idea if the resort was there while he was filming the movie, or if the resort was built because of the movie.)

A nice place to a castaway, except you would need to have your wallet with you.

What a gorgeous resort. Isn't Tom Hanks married to Rita Wilson? So maybe he was actually talking to his "Wilson", only calling her Honey and not "Wilson". :0 Now that makes me smile but then so did your commentary.
