Where area of the island are you staying in? I believe Hillside in Salt Pond had a gluten free section. They have the best selection so I would imagine if they don't have it no one will.

The grocery stores in Salt Pond are good, but I do not believe the carry Gluten Free products other than those that are naturally Gluten Free (e.g. Celery). We've looked. Solomon's Fresh Market in Nassau has an amazingly broad selection of Gluten Free crackers, cookies, pastas, mixes, flours, etc.

At this time of the year, are "no-seeums" present? Any other critters or insects to be concerned about at this time of year? Thanks.

we were there last month and I gotten eaten up pretty badly. They'd had alot of rain recently and the first part of the trip was dead calm. Once the wind picked up it was much better.

It's breezy here now, so the noseeums are manageable. Just oil up before you head outside in the morning and evening, and you should be fine. Where in Wemyss are you staying? Most places have screened porches, or misting systems for the buggies.

Hillside just got in an amazing selection of product, so your chances of specialty foods is greater now than usual. And there are much more healthy items available. When are you visiting? It's possible to put in an order with Solomon's in Nassau and have them put it on the mailboat to LI in time for you arrival if you plan in advance. PM if I can help!

We are staying at the Versatile BEACHFRONT Villa. Any brand of oil recommended? Is getting around on bicycles an option? Thanks.
