Rainy day

Weather is looking pretty sketchy, so we’re just going to drive around town to see what’s to see today. Ginny wants to go out by the airport to see “Aragorn Studios and I would like to scope out the airport to see where we will return the car. Had lunch at a local cyber café …

Patouche Sailing cruise

This is probably the best day of the whole trip. We signed up to do a snorkel trip with Patouche charters. They were one of the few places that returned our calls AND would take credit cards. Fay and Shane were a good crew, took us to nice places, and pointed out the best places …

Smugglers Cove beach

Today we decided to check out one of the local snorkeling beaches. Smugglers Cove was listed as a good spot, so we pull out the map and start driving. The drive was, shall we say, interesting? It went from lousy local roads, to dirt roads, to rocky roads. We did finally get there and it …

Woke up at the normal time but the boat was strangely quiet. Half the passengers were gone. They had to get up at 4:30am to get transferred to the airport for a 7am flight. We decided to wait until most of the people who had deadlines were gone, so we just relaxed on board. Around …

Virgin Gorda

We weren’t feeling up to going to ‘The Baths’ today, so we decided to just stay on board. That’s disappointing, as I’ve heard ‘The Baths’ is pretty interesting.

Saint Barths

Saint Martin

Work up around 6am still feeling lousy. We decided to go ashore to find some cold medicine. Had a very light breakfast of some honeydew melon and toast I’m sure that anything heavier would screw me up something fierce. Turns out that every morning the captain hosts a ‘Story Time’ where he tells us what’s …

Ahoy Mate

We’re on our way … wake up at 4am, cab arrives at 5am, flight is at 7am. OMG am I tired. Arrive at San Juan, find a place for lunch. Nothing special, but ok. Fly to St. Martin in a puddle jumper. We sat right next to the prop. After clearing customs, we went to …

Preparing to leave

We’re off on another vacation … this time to the Caribbean for a Windjammer cruise and some time on the British Virgin Island of Tortola. Riley has figured it out he’s seen the duffel bags and knows we’re going away. He’s not in a good mood. Ginny has a cough that hasn’t gotten any better …
