A High Wind in Jamaica - Conde Nast Traveler March 2011

In the '40s, the flamboyant Errol Flynn and James Bond creator Ian Fleming fell for the island, in the '50s Noël Coward hosted a parade of A-listers in his Firefly paradise, and Mick, Bianca, and Keith alighted in the '70s.










The Inspiration:

"My dream of happiness: a quiet spot by the Jamaican seashore . . . , hearing the wind sob with the beauty and the tragedy of everything. Sitting under an almond tree, with the leaf spread over me like an umbrella." —Errol Flynn
