Gullible travels

Can you imagine if you lived on a very remote hidden island within a tribe isolated from the rest of the world most of your life? The village shaman would be busy diddling around everyday as the other men were hard at work hacking away at their tree trunks making their dugout boats as would

Meet the fat lady Puff

Finding respite after 50 hours of sailing in a little sandspit within the Los Roques archipelago in the distant coastal waters of Venezuela, Andrew and I enjoy a good bottle of Cartuxa Portuguese wine, a pot of Colcannon and a movie. Mind you all this is at anchor with little or no shelter from the

PINK, what can I say I saw it and it was PINK.

With the whole family

With the whole family on board every day has been full of good times, so much so that I have no time to write. We have traveled the islands of St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Bequia and now bobbing up and down in Canouan. St. Lucia’s snorkeling is fantastic, closet to a scuba dive through coral

Happy New Year St Lucian Style

An actual rare but classic sunset, clear to the horizon, let the sun dip into the warm Caribbean Sea saying goodbye to 2012. The sun made no promises or resolutions as it disappeared but I’m hoping it will be back in 2013. Mile-wide crescent shaped Rodney Bay had more than a hundred sailboats at anchor,
