Read about these adventures in our March letter home.

I really like the picture of these two boats each traveling in their own style.  I borrowed this from Frank.
Cane Garden Bay on Tortola can be so peaceful .. or a northerly swell can bring out the surfers.
Linda enjoys the jacuzzi action of the swirling waters created by the waves rushing over the rocks on Jost Van Dyke.
A turtle swims over to check us out. 

This dolphin was losing interest in us by the time I got my camera.

Mike always has a list of maintenance items or fix-it items to work on.
Frank caught this pic as we were coming in to Nanny Cay to pick them up for our vacation together.


Preparing for the sail to St. Barts.  Linda sews a French flag and the guys pull up the dinghy in preparation for our overnight sail.
Enjoy the reading while you still have light.  It'll be a long night.

St. Barts harbor is full of beautiful boats with beautiful people on them.  We regular folk can only stop and stare.

Gustavia in St. Barts is very quaint with a definite French flavor.
Lunch at Le Select, made famous by Jimmy Buffett song "Cheeseburger in Paradise".
Approaching airplanes sweep low across this hilltop to land below.

The day included a visit to a popular nude sunbathing beach, but most were clothed.

We entered St. Martin at Philipsburg.  Streets are lined with duty-free shops selling major labels.

Marigot Bay is geared to the tourist souvenirs.

A hike to the fort at the top of the hill provides a great view of Marigot Bay.

Local boys do flips off the wooden platform down to the sand in Grand Case.

Our day on Orient Beach was sunny and perfect.
The bridge into St. Martin's Simpson Bay Lagoon only opens 3 times a day.  There is usually a long line of boats waiting to enter or exit.

We anchored in the lagoon for a week.

We are now in Antigua, waiting for the kids to arrive for Spring vacation.  We'll spend all of April in Antigua.
