Culebra and Flying Fish!

We started our sail to Culebra from Great Lameshur Bay on St. John just as the sun was rising. We actually had to set our alarm (an extremely rare event in cruiser world) for 5:00 a.m. to make sure we got our coffee and the boat was ready to go by 6:00 a.m. The sail…

The great St. John

We have been at Great Lameshur Bay on St. John for almost a week now (and I am posting this a little late since this is the first time we’ve actually had good internet so I can post to the blog). It’s a great little bay, very quiet with no road noise or ambient light.…

Computer is now fixed, so here is my Antigua post. . . Our first new island since Carriacou! We didn’t make…

Ste Anne, Martinique

We had a full night and day of more rain than I’d ever seen in the Caribbean in a 24 hour period. It was nonstop, pouring—not drizzling, not spitting, not misting, but downpour—starting at about 9 or 10 p.m.  and finally finishing by about that time the next night. The weather report showed this big…

Roti in Harvey Vale

Pronounced Kerry-uh-coo, the locals call themselves Kayaks, like the thing you paddle around in. It is a Grenadian Island about 32 miles north of the main island of Grenada and for our “sail” up here there was zero wind so we motored the 5.5 hours. We are currently in Tyrell Bay, the little town is…
