Plot Overview

After watching a documentary on television, Howard decides to pack it all in and move to a Caribbean island and take up the life of beachcomber. Most people think he's gone off his rocker but some think he's taking a brave step and hope it all works out for him. He quits his job as County Clerk and soon sets off. He finds a beach front property and is soon lying in a hammock all day, enjoying the view and the beach. He also meets others who have taken up residence there but doesn't exactly find a kindred spirit. He dreams of what he may be like in a few years time and in doing so, scares himself into going back to Mayberry.
