Good Evening Mr Bond …

Author Ian Fleming, creator of spy James Bond, bought a piece of land on Jamaica with a private beach and reef, and got a local contractor to build a simple house with a great view of the Caribbean Sea. He christened the house Goldeneye.

Goldeneye

He started his day with a morning swim in the Caribbean Sea followed by a breakfast with his wife Ann. The breakfast always consisted of scrambled eggs, bacon and black coffee.At 9am, he would give Ann a kiss, leave the breakfast table and go inside into the main living room in Goldeneye. He would close the jalousied windows to create a cool and shady room with a hint of a tropical breeze. Then he would take out his old Imperial portable typewriter and type for the next three hours.
