The last wave of tar balls that rolled ashore in Huntington Beach two weeks ago triggered a flood of memories about another place that I once called home. Surf City has been my home since I moved to Orange County last September. And in many ways it resembles my home of 22 years--Trinidad and Tobago, a twin-island nation perched seven miles above Venezuela in the southern Caribbean. With a size of almost 2,000 square miles, Trinidad and Tobago is slightly larger than Rhode Island.
