Dobie Dolphin's Coconut Farm
On Dobie Dolphin's coconut farm, I was mostly instructed to drag coconut scraps into piles and burn them, as they clutter up the forest floor. She'd just had the men come and shimmy up the trees to cut down the coconuts, which now sat in piles all around the farm. She told me to cut open and drink as many of them as I wanted.
For a few days Dobie left me in charge of the farm, while she went off to Vallarta to play with some old friends. Then it was just me and this tiny coconut farm, a half-hour's walk to the Pacific Ocean.
