The idea of owning an island is probably a remote fantasy these days, especially after three years of economic carnage to people’s bank accounts, savings and retirement portfolios. Maybe you had to take a budget vacation, to the beach or a bayfront or lakefront rental. But who hasn't gazed out at an island from the shore and wondered what it would be like to own your own kingdom, linked to civilization only by water or air? Think Robinson Crusoe. Sir Richard Branson, Johnny Depp and Celine Dion all own islands.
